The Book of Job: Chapter Eight.

Chapter Eight in the Book of Job is all about Job's second friend, Bildad the Shuhite's, response to Job. Like Eliphaz, Bildad's words are cutting not comforting. In his whole speech, he's basically accusing Job of being unrighteous. He even goes as far as saying, "Hey what happened was deserved." Not the time or place,... Continue Reading →

The Book of Job: Chapters 6-7

Chapters six through seven are Job's first answer to Eliphaz. These two chapters deal a lot with grief and depression. They also show us how we should act and react to someone who is going through them. They also reveal a similarity in all of us, from the troubles in the night to the groaning... Continue Reading →

The Book of Job: Chapter 5

There is a lot to unpack in Job chapter 5. It is a continuation of Eliphaz's first speech to Job. At times, Eliphaz comes across a little higher-than-thou, in my opinion, but if we break apart what he's saying and put it in the light of Christ, the revelation is extremely important. Discipline Behold, how... Continue Reading →

The Book of Job: Chapters 3-4

The third and fourth chapters of Job begin the speeches, the back and forth between Job and his three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite; Bildad the Shuhite; and Zophar the Naamathite. In these two chapters we see the grief of man and the steadfastness of God. It is a rhythm and flow that is experienced throughout... Continue Reading →

The Book of Job

If you grew up in church then you know the story of Job as this: Job was a wealthy and righteous man. One day Satan came before God and asked to test Job and God agreed. Job lost all of his children, his possessions, and his health. Everyone told Job he should curse God but... Continue Reading →

Are We Guilty of Selective Hearing?

On Monday morning, Hubby asked the kids if they would like to go to Chili's then watch fireworks this weekend. The keywords being this weekend. Ade turned to me and asked, "We're going to Chili's tonight?" He had half-listened to the conversation, picked out the words that interested him most, and tuned out the rest,... Continue Reading →

The Umbrella of Faith

...For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me, and said, 'Stop being afraid, Paul. You must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has given you [the lives of] all those who are sailing with you.'Apostle Paul (Acts 27:23-24 amp) Can you imagine being... Continue Reading →

Why We Need Jesus.

A few weeks ago, God told me to read the book of Job. You can imagine my reaction. It's been slow going for me because I want to make sure that I am getting the message that God is speaking to me. In truth, I have never read the full book. I know the story,... Continue Reading →

At the Red Sea

What does it mean to trust God? Why does it seem like our faith in Him is tested over and over again? If we were to answer these questions, I'd suggest asking the Israelites who walked out of Egypt. They saw some of God's miraculous works––I won't say most miraculous but they were pretty awesome––and... Continue Reading →
