Wandering through Psalms

I'm still creeping my way through the Old Testament, two chapters at a time most days. Or most days with the occasional day off. Or, really, on the occasional day with most days off. Some months I do really well at reading my two chapters a day. Others, not so much.  Recently, I reached the… Continue reading Wandering through Psalms

Hanging out with Job

As some of you may remember, I started a journey through the scriptures a few years ago. My goal was (and still is) to read straight through, from page 1 to page ... whatever. Luckily, I didn't set a time limit for myself because if I had, I would have failed over and over again.… Continue reading Hanging out with Job

As For Me and My House

All my life I've heard people quote an edited version of Joshua 24:15: (Choose you this day whom ye shall serve. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.) To tell the truth the scripture has never made much of an impact on me. It seemed kind of . . . well… Continue reading As For Me and My House

Deep-ish Thoughts, Leviticus, Spiritual

Leviticus 3-6

My road-trip through the Bible got stalled for a few weeks because I got caught up in yet another deadline -- and, I'll admit, because I'm in Leviticus, which isn't exactly an enthralling book. Thankfully, our God is a forgiving God, and a patient God. But He's also a consistent God. Once He asks us… Continue reading Leviticus 3-6

Leviticus 1-2

I'll admit it. This is my first time ever reading Leviticus. I'm sure I've read the occasional scripture, picked out by someone who was giving a talk or preaching a sermon, but I haven't read the entire book and I know very little about what it contains. I'm walking through unknown territory here, folks. It's… Continue reading Leviticus 1-2

Exodus 35-40

In Chapter 35, Moses puts out a call for volunteers to build the tabernacle the Lord has commanded Moses to build for Him. The Lord has given Moses detailed instructions: this many curtains, exactly this size; this many hooks made exactly this way. Moses goes to the children of Israel and asks for donations. Bring… Continue reading Exodus 35-40

Exodus 33-34

The Lord promises to be with the children of Israel. This is a promise He's made before, but He seems to be renewing his promise now, after the recent events that almost resulted in the children of Israel getting themselves wiped off the face of the earth. Moses is instructed to move the carefully constructed… Continue reading Exodus 33-34

Exodus 31-32

So Moses is up on Mount Sinai receiving God's laws and commandments for his people. He's up there for forty days and forty nights -- which, when you think about it, is a little while to be cut off completely from all communication with the folks left behind. No cell phone. No text messages. No… Continue reading Exodus 31-32

Exodus 25-30

God gives the Israelites a lot of direction in these chapters about how to build a tabernacle, how to construct the mercy seat, how many panels of curtains to place on the columns, how many columns to build, how tall and wide everything is to be. I have to confess that I got a little… Continue reading Exodus 25-30

Exodus 21-24

The Israelites are still gathered and God is giving them some laws to live by. These aren't the flat-out DON'T rules, these are IF YOU DO IT THIS WAY, WHAT THEN? rules. If you buy a servant, set him free in the seventh year--unless he has taken a wife, then do this, unless the wife… Continue reading Exodus 21-24
