Confess :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up # 27

And it shall be, when he is guilty in any of these matters, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing: and he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord for his sin which he has committed… Leviticus 5:5-6 Confess. It means to show one’s self as guilty. Sin. It means to miss or wonder away from the path of righteousness. Sin and confess. These aren’t words that I like to talk about too much. Well, at least I don’t like talking about them when it comes to my own sin […]

Breath In Our Lungs :: 2nd Saturday Signs

Welcome to my new blog series, 2nd Saturday Signs. It will publish… guess when? The second Saturday of every month. Genius title, right? Anyway… I’ve been wanting to share with you all about my hand-painted signs and how to make them for quite sometime now, but have never gotten around to it or haven’t felt like it was the right time to do so. However, after writing about some provoking verses in a January #QuietlyThrough Thursday post, I’ve been inspire to design, paint, and share a monster hand-painted sign that I hope you’ll love. This […]

An Angel Before You :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-Up #26

Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Exodus 23:20 “Behold I send and angel before you…” Not behind you or beside you. But before you. In front and leading the way. Beware of Him and obey His voice; do not provoke Him, for He will not pardon your transgressions; for My name is in Him. Exodus 23:21 “Beware of Him…” Be mindful of him. Do not forget him or forget to look to him for direction. “Obey His […]

Here I Am (Again) :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #25

So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” – Exodus 3:4 I live in America. I have a television. I have four kids and an over-active dog. So nearly everyday I see something strange. Something outlandish. Something that should make me pause and go huh?  But to tell you the truth I don’t always pause. I don’t always let my curiosity win. I don’t often take a good look at whatever the […]

She Went to Inquire of the Lord :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #24

I don’t have much to write on this Quietly Through Thursday. One, because it’s been a bit of a rough work week for me and I’m tired. And two, because God’s word, in all its simplicity, can speak profound volumes more than I ever can. So let me just get right to it. While reading Quietly Through the Bible this last month I noticed three examples of prayer that I knew I needed to share with you here. Example #1 And when (Jesus) had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by […]

Here I Am :: Quietly Through Thursday Link-up #23

Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son Issac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt […]

The Breath of Life :: Quietly Through Link-up #22

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7 There is currently a song on the radio that has a lyric that I keep mulling over in my mind. The chorus starts, “It’s Your breath in our lungs…” Genesis 2:7 confirms that it is the breath of God in our lungs. His breath gave us, humans formed from dust, life. The chorus goes on to say “…so we pour out our praise to You only.” […]

Quietly Through the Bible in 2018

Keep it Simple If you’ve been around this blog much in the last year or two, then you know how I feel about reading God’s word. It’s important. So important that I think we all should do it every day. Do you want to read more of your Bible in 2018? Then let’s keep Bible reading simple. Because keeping it simple — real simple — will help us to actually do it. Simple like “just give a simple, chronological list of passages to read and let’s get to it.” Reading God’s Thoughts Don’t get me […]

What Child Is This :: Quietly Through Link-Up #21

It’s December. And I’m exhausted. Aren’t you? School started only three months ago. Then there was that short, but crazy holiday-thing we call Halloween. That was followed by all the baking and eating! of Thanksgiving. And then December hit and it has been a mad rush to get all the Christmas gifts bought, wrapped, and shipped, the decorations up, and another family feast planned. Plus I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but I can’t quite put my finger on it… Christmas cards!!! I forgot to mail the Christmas cards! [bctt tweet=”It’s December. And I’m exhausted. Aren’t […]
