Small Group Meeting – #3 — don’t hide that fire

We had our third small group meeting tonight. It was a great time and I pray we all learned something from it. Our lesson was on spending time with God daily. Can people tell when we’ve been with Jesus? We need to live our lives so the people around us can clearly see that we […]

So I have an exciting idea to run by you all. And I’d really love your feedback on this. I have been thinking about this for awhile and also praying about it. I think it would be really neat to write a book telling the story of my spiritual journey and how God has worked in my life.  I feel like it would be a great way to reach out to others and share with them how He has moved in my life.  Now I don’t have some amazing salvation story or crazy adventurous life to share with you all, to some it may seem very dull and boring.  But I’d love to be able to share with others that God is the one you can rely on and He is with you through everything, you can find blessings and something to be thankful for even in the hard times.  Do you think it would be a good idea?

Returning to God. — the divine presence

 

How do we fix the world? How do we change lives? How do we make a Godly impact? There is something that we all must do, regardless of where we’re called to go, what we’re called to do specifically…whether we are called to be a preacher or a pastor’s wife, a missionary or a writer, […]

Women of the Bible – Rahab

fullsizeoutput_34cf

So I decided to start going through and studying different women in the Bible who had an impact on those around them and the Kingdom and see what I can learn from them. Well for whatever reason I flipped to Joshua first and the story of Rahab and the spies. I’ve only done the first verse of that chapter but I’m hoping maybe today to keep on and study some more. But the reason I stopped is because something really stood out to me.

‘And Joshua the son of Nun sent two men secretly from Shittim as spies, saying, “Go, view the land, especially Jericho.” And they went and came into the house of a prostitute whose name was Rahab and lodged there.’ Joshua 2:1

Okay so Joshua picks two guys and sends them out secretly to check out the land and see what it’s like. I’m going to guess these guys were godly men of Israel, you know someone he could trust to do a good job. Then the next sentence is what popped out at me. ‘And they went and came into the house of a prostitute whose name was Rahab and lodged there’  Why did these guys go to a prostitute’s house?? Am I the only one who finds that kind of interesting? 

I get that God used her to help them out and she repented and turned to the Lord, but it just kind of shocked me that these guys went to her house. It just shows that God can use anyone to further His kingdom. He can use sinners (like ever one of us) to bring glory to His name.

I’m really looking forward to sharing more from my study time on women of the Bible. If y’all have thoughts on this go ahead and comment.

These verses were read today at church and they just stabbed me in the heart. I almost was in tears… when we past through the waters, He will be with us. When we go through fire, He is there. Through everything He is there. He is our Savior and He has called us His own… He is there with you right now. You are not alone.
