Awesome ….


I’ve just got to post this video…. I’m a part of the Daily Audio Bible community (www.dailyaudiobible.com) where anyone, anywhere, who will listen can hear the Bible read to them aloud.  Brian Hardin is the group’s founder and the voice you hear when you listen to the audio.  He reads a portion of the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Psalms and the Proverbs every day … and we go through the entire Bible in a year.

It has definitely been a good habit I picked up.

Recently, Brian went to Africa – to places like Rwanda and Uganda and he posted a video of his trip there.

I’m not very good at embedding videos…. so, go here or here to see it.

As a descendant of Africa myself, this video makes me want to see it first hand. So for myself, I will be saving to get to Africa on my vacation next year. I will make this a goal that I am articulating here: To go see my Spiritual sisters in South Africa next year – God helping me! And then, to Alece’s part of the world.

So, as you watch this video and hear my heart…. pray for me… and
follow the desires of your own heart – coz probably God put them there in the first place….

Blog Highlights: Lost Sheep – Hockey and Faith!


I wrote before of my friend lost sheep, who started a series speaking to faith through the lens of hockey.  I loved her post then, and encouraged her to continue writing.  She’s revamped one of her blogs to focus on faith using hockey as the analogy, as well as other popular things in our culture.  I love her take on it – I told her that she might even make me start watching hockey because of her enthusiasm for the game!

This is her “About This Blog” post:

i write a couple different blogs—one on spiritual abuse and another full of poetry and my faith—i struggle dearly with my faith due to spiritual abuse, hurts, and oppression.  I am hoping to take this blog as an inspiration—I want to take this blog and relate faith to everyday life, through sports, music, reading, quotes, etc—some of this may not be positive, heck some of it may be very dark—but i ask you to take the time to read the post and see how your faith, etc does relate to everyday life—also, if you have something to share, let me know—be happy to share that on this blog also.

Please take a chance to read through the revamped blog Searching For Victory and be immersed, for now, in hockey parlance as it connects to our faith.

Here is an excerpt from her latest post  “HE is a PENS fan!! :)”

My son and I finally have a team to agree upon–the PENS–most other sports we are rivals–i tried to raise him” with the “right” teams–but he is stubborn–PENS are my favorite, and hockey is my favorite so at least we agree here—just thank god he doesn’t like the Red Wings–BLECH-i am really surprised my son doesn’t chose the red wings out of spite  just to be deviant and defiant–but i would love him anyways (so i think  i don’t know about having a wings fan in my household–hmmmpphhh)

i also dont want to be pushy “parent”  and make my son like, or do things he doesn’t want to—want him to make his own choices, and to grow up knowing he has his own choices-however, i am trying to be convincing of him to play hockey as a sport—would enjoy so much watching him play this sport—but then would also worry alot about him getting hurt.  I tell him to pray about it when he isn’t sure what to do, or team to choose.

This again makes me think of my faith in several senses—….

Personal Devotions – Romans 13:8-14


Love, for the Day is Near

8Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. 9The commandments, “Do not commit adultery,” “Do not murder,” “Do not steal,” “Do not covet,”[a] and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[b] 10Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.11And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.[c]

Meditating on this today.

Prayer

Lord you know my struggles, you know my issues.  Please help me to focus on putting on Christ and on awaking from slumber, because the day is almost here.  Thank you for speaking to me through your word today.

AMEN
