  1. Thanks for the prayers. Creatinine is coming down slightly. I praise God for that. Should be just below 1.0. Hers was 4.9 and has dropped to 4.6. At 5.0, the doctor said they were going to put her on dialysis. The pneumonia is breaking up, that is good. She is going to a regular hospital room tomorrow. Not out of the woods, but headed in the right direction. Still a few more problems but I'm trusting God for that. And I'm grateful for every single prayer no matter how small.
  2. I'll be out for a while. My mother is very sick. Please pray.
  3. Pneumonia in her left lung. Heart rate and creatine too high. Still can't eat. Please continue to pray.
  4. My mother, 78, yesterday morning began to cry out in chest pain and back pain. She got to the bed and I found her shaking violently, vomiting, and could not get up. I called an ambulance after about 15 minutes of that. She is in the hospital now and trying to rest. The pain has subsided and the tremors are still there but less. She cannot eat anything because she keeps having dry heaves and terrible nausea. Please pray that she can get some sleep and rest. And that the doctors can find what's wrong. Oh, and I had a car accident this morning leaving the hospital parking lot. Thank goodness only superficial scratches to the other car, but mine .......…. got to go in the shop.

    No Hope

    Oh, how I have been there and done that. How many sleepless nights have I been there. If you want to talk about it here, please do.
  6. Jesus said to do this, eating the bread and wine [juice] in remembrance of him. Not to literally eat his body and drink his blood. But to remember him. Jesus had a glorified body now with scars, but glorified. The glorified body of his is not the body that was crucified. So what exactly is the bread and wine turning into? His old body? Just as the Old Testament Hebrews ate the unleavened bread, the roasted lamb, etc. as a symbolic representation of the night God protected his people from the death of the firstborn plague in Egypt, the lamb represented the future Christ. None of the elements of the Passover meal turned into the future "body" of Christ. The emphasis is NOT the molecular structure of the elements. It's using the elements that Christ ordained to remember him and what he did for us on the cross.
  7. This psalm says that it's author is Heman the Ezrahite. This is what David Guzik has to say about this psalm. Here's what I have to say. No matter who this man is - he is in a deep, deep well of remorse and shame over his sin - whatever it may be. Both his beloved and his friends are against him because of it and he recognizes that God is not happy. His wisdom, talent, accomplishments, nor his blessings stopped him from sinning. Only God and his ways of escape can do that. But it was very wise of him to acknowledge that he has sinned against God. Have you or I ever been here because of sin? The remedy is to flee from the devil and run to Jesus to do these sins no more. I like what Charles Spurgeon has to say about Heman.
  8. DAY 112 - PSALM 88 [Book 3] I Cry Out Day and Night Before You A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite. O Lord, God of my salvation, I cry out day and night before you. 2 Let my prayer come before you; incline your ear to my cry! 3 For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol. 4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am a man who has no strength, 5 like one set loose among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, like those whom you remember no more, for they are cut off from your hand. 6 You have put me in the depths of the pit, in the regions dark and deep. 7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me, and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah 8 You have caused my companions to shun me; you have made me a horror to them. I am shut in so that I cannot escape; 9 my eye grows dim through sorrow. Every day I call upon you, O Lord; I spread out my hands to you. 10 Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah 11 Is your steadfast love declared in the grave, or your faithfulness in Abaddon? 12 Are your wonders known in the darkness, or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 13 But I, O Lord, cry to you; in the morning my prayer comes before you. 14 O Lord, why do you cast my soul away? Why do you hide your face from me? 15 Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer your terrors; I am helpless. 16 Your wrath has swept over me; your dreadful assaults destroy me. 17 They surround me like a flood all day long; they close in on me together. 18 You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me; my companions have become darkness.
  9. I'm praying for God's justice and great mercies on this family.
  10. Don't worry about "randomness". After you read the Bible through, then you can go back and read chronologically. Just read it, I say. I used to worry - no, really, I worried - that I wasn't reading the "right" passage for that day that God wanted me to read. I got over that. I have a routine. I read daily some weeks and 3-4 times other weeks and take notes in my Bible. Lots of notes.
  11. Rahab [Egpyt] - not Rahab the harlot God loves Jerusalem. It is very special to him and always will be. Yet, God even lists some pagan nation that he considers some "to have been born in" Jerusalem. That's because in these Gentile nations, many were and have been saved. God specifically love the geographical Jerusalem, but his people come from all over the world. Those who are saved KNOW that our source of life comes from God.
  12. DAY 111 - PSALM 87 [Book 3] Glorious Things of You Are Spoken A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. A Song. God’s foundation is set on the holy mountains. 2 The Lord loves Zion’s gates more than all of Jacob’s houses combined. 3 Glorious things are said about you, the city of God! Selah 4 I count Rahab and Babel among those who know me; also Philistia and Tyre, along with Cush— each of these was born there. 5 And of Zion it is said: “Each person was born in it, but the one who will establish it is the Most High.” 6 The Lord makes a record as he registers the peoples: “Each one was born there.” Selah 7 And while they dance, people sing: “The source of my life comes from you.”
  13. I'm going to say what "is" the core theme because it's still relevant to fully grasping the New Testament. My answer? The theme of the Old Testament is the holiness of God, the depravity of man, the need of a Messiah, and his name is Jesus.
  14. No debate.... ….yes, I was taught it, but as with everything I was taught, as I aged and read the Bible for myself - I solidified my own beliefs. Yes, I believe in the security of the believer. A couple of other things I was taught - I have disavowed. Others - retained.
  15. DAY 110 - PSALM 86 [Book 3] Great Is Your Steadfast Love A Prayer of David. Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2 Preserve my life, for I am godly; save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God. 3 Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all the day. 4 Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. 5 For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. 6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace. 7 In the day of my trouble I call upon you, for you answer me. 8 There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. 9 All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. 10 For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God. 11 Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. 12 I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever. 13 For great is your steadfast love toward me; you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. 14 O God, insolent men have risen up against me; a band of ruthless men seeks my life, and they do not set you before them. 15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me; give your strength to your servant, and save the son of your maidservant. 17 Show me a sign of your favor, that those who hate me may see and be put to shame because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
