08/20/09 - Being Bold

I was reading 2 Timothy today (yes, all three boys were napping together and gave me a good hour or so of quiet time!) and I was reminded about our need for boldness with the gospel.

In our community a "dungeon of doom" is opening this fall. Christians have banned together to try to stop the opening of this dungeon, but were unsuccessful...at least if you were using a temporal perspective.

But as I read 2 Timothy I was reminded of our boldness! We win in the end! Evil can never win against good! God wins!

I am praying for there to be a movement of people in our community who will share in my boldness and pray openly and boldly for this dudgeon to fail in an eternal perspective!

08/14/09 - Jeremiah 8:12a

As I was reading through Jeremiah this week, this verse struck me as a verse that applies to our culture today:

8:12a
Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;
they did not know how to blush.

Have we become like this? Are we desensitised to our own abominations against the Lord? Do we see sin as shameful? Do we remember how to blush at things that should not be spoken about in certain settings?

If we're not careful, we can easily become calloused to those things that should make us blush.

08/12/09 - 39 weeks

Today I am 39 weeks pregnant. I've never been this pregnant before. Both my other two came early! It's been a bit tough to wait, but I know that Clark will come out soon!

I ask that you pray for me, for Clark, for my delivery, and for my patience!

Thanks!

08/03/09 - Correction

How do you like when someone corrects you?

How we respond to correction will show us if we are wise or foolish.

Josh Harris preached on this yesterday and I recommend listening to his message on Proverbs 9.

Much of what he says has been on my heart lately, but he puts it much better than I'd say it!!
