I wrote down a bunch of ideas for blogs on a random piece of paper and stuck it in my Bible. I can’t find it. That is the story of my life right now – good intentions but no follow through. I think throughout the day of things that happen that would make a great post but by the time I get home and open up the computer, FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I can’t remember what idea I had. Oh, the cruelty. Or maybe it is God saving you from another rambling post from me.
Who knows where I am going with this post. I am up to my ears teaching and studying through Genesis for our Gorgeous Study. I have learned so much and so excited to pour out (spew) all that I am studying. Sometimes I get so excited that I have to tell what I discovered right that moment. I almost feel sorry for the ladies in our study – by the time I get up there I am about to explode and don’t stop talking for an hour. Kind of like me on my blogs only longer – once I start talking about what I am learning in the Bible I can’t stop.
Like right now I am so pumped that in Genesis 12:1-3 God says five times that, “I will do this. I will do this. I will do this.” What a relief. I don’t have to do this life alone. He is going to do it. In these verses there is no emphasis on what Abraham has to do but on what God is going to do. Take a deep breath now because it isn’t up to you but Him. Abraham’s responsiblity and ours is to believe God is going to do what He has promised. The end. God will do the rest.
However, I must warn you. When you believe God and follow Him. It will take you to places you never knew you would go and experience things that you never would have imagined. “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has convinced what God has prepared for those who love him.” 2 Cor. 2:9
