Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 4)

In this final post of the series I want to look at Sarah and Abraham to talk about identity. People go on and on about sexual identity, about career identity, about family identity, about cultural identity. Over the years Sarah and Abraham had the opportunity to identify themselves as so many things.  Between the two…

Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 3)

We left Abraham in a pretty vulnerable situation on Tuesday (See This Post). Things were a bit sensitive. Abraham had submitted to God’s promise of a Son with a very personal act of dedication! He had declared that he (and all his household) would be circumcised! (Genesis 17:23) Not sure the staff would have been…

Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 2)

I can’t imagine how it would have played on Abraham’s mind, imagining his beautiful wife with the Pharaoh even though now she was back with him. That kind of sexual problem takes a lot of healing. Against her will, Sarah had very possibly committed adultery and begun a new life, never knowing if she would…

Abraham and Sarah’s Faithful Sex Life (Part 1)

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 15)

Let’s talk about the physicality of Scripture! The beautiful Hazel from Pure Glory blog, encouraged me in a comment to speak scripture into my bones, after reading my recent post Y?. It is that exchange that inspired this study.  Today for my 10 minute Challenge I’m going through Proverbs 15 looking for Scriptures that bring…

God Has A Story to Tell; Morning and Evening…

Today I am posting a prayer that I wrote for morning and evening. Someone once said in a talk that I heard that they literally took life one day at a time, by placing a ‘one page per day’ desk calendar on their bed stand. They would wake up and ‘face the day’ and pray…

Trust

I don’t trust myself, I don’t trust others but I do trust the Lord. When we put ourselves and others into the hands of the Lord,  we can trust him with ourselves, and we can trust him with others. Trusting the Lord takes the pressure off people, and acknowledges the  power of the one who…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 11)

Proverbs 11! This is so exciting because it means I’m over a third of the way through the Book of Proverbs! How often do you start reading through the bible with wonderful intentions but circumstances get in the way and you stop? Today I want to take a moment to cheer myself on and celebrate…
