Revive ’19 Conference Watch Party

My friend Bev and I are hosting a watch party for the Revive Our Hearts women’s ministry annual conference Revive ’19. It’ll be a little different than a regular watch party and that we will have a chat box so that you can chat during the sessions and then we will have an hour or so of discussion afterwards so we can talk about how what we have learned can be applied to our lives. Here is the link to get more information and to register:

The Who in the story

We all know the Scripture is profitable for teaching all of us, so why does it matter who it was written to? Peter Krol answers this question in his blog The Knowable Word. Enjoy!

Why We Should Care Who The Audience Is

By Peter Krol

In yesterday’s post we considered who the primary audience of Proverbs was. Why bother?

The main reason is because, although the Bible was written for us (1 Cor 10:11), it was not written to us. Every book of the Bible was written by a particular person, for a particular group of people, in a particular situation. We put ourselves in danger of misunderstanding the text if we don’t first understand these historical circumstances. We must put ourselves in their shoes.

When God says no to something “good”

This is a part of the Christian life I have to always remember. Just because I have an authentic desire to do this or that for God, it doesn’t mean that it is an action or activity that He wants me to do. Thank you for sharing this Bev.

Plea for Grace

Psalm 131:1-3 ESV –
1 O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.
2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.

Godly desires are not wrong. Wanting to serve as an act of worship is not wrong. But sometimes God says no to “good” things . . .

Confusion. Disappointment. Frustration. Now what? Where do I go with these emotions?

My God is sovereign over all. If I am his child, and I am because he has redeemed me and I have been bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20), then God gives me my assignments. He has prepared…

Throwback Thursday ~ When God Says No

When I was sixteen years old, I was convinced God was calling me to be the next Sandi Patty…I wanted God to use me- to put me on a stage every night in front of thousands of people so I could sing to them about Him…Somehow, it never occurred to me to care what God thought about all this or what He might want to do in my life. If I thought about it at all, I just assumed He was on board with my plans. Like, how could He not be, right?¹

There’s much ado about dreaming big dreams for God in modern evangelicalism. Think of the biggest thing you want to do for God and then “step out on faith” and make it happen. Sometimes we’re even told God is offended if our dreams aren’t big enough. It means we don’t have…
