Quick Update

Yay! I just finished reading through Revelation, and get to start on the Old Testament now. Lots of reading ahead, but I have much more interest in history these days than I ever used to so it should be pretty fun. I’ve decided to hold the rest of my thoughts on Revelation for later, as […]

Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

Genesis 39-50 I read the end of Genesis today, starting where Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery. It probably wasn’t the wisest thing to brag about his dreams to his brothers, but all in all, Joseph was a pretty wise man. He was obviously hurt and upset over everything that happened to him becuase of […]

What happened to you?

I read about 14 chapters of Genesis yesterday, and fell asleep when I went to blog about it. I didn’t really come across much that I felt like blogging about, so I’ll just mention some of the small things I noticed… When Abraham told Ambimilech that Sarah was his sister (she was his half sister, […]

But… but… but… but…

Ok I’m really tired, I’ve had less than 5 hours of sleep a night for 3 nights running, and about 3 hours sleep last night. I’m on my way to bed, but wanted to drop a quick entry before I go. I read Genesis 14-19 today, and in my tired state, the one thing that […]

Wow, what a service tonight! Our church is having revival this weekend, which basically means church every evening from Thursday through Saturday and twice on Sunday with a guest evangelist. It’s the church’s 15th anniversary, apparently, and they always have the same preacher back for their anniversary revival. Thursday’s service was good — one of […]

on fire?

A question from a friend prompted me to revisit a few questions about different beliefs involving the charismatic movement, pentecostal movement, etc., and in the course of looking into that I came across a scripture that hadn’t quite sunk in before. The church I grew up in believes in the Holy Spirit, but doesn’t encourage […]

In the beginning…

I read about 12 chapters of Genesis today, and then called a friend who knows hebrew to drill him on a few points. After talking about Genesis for at least an hour and a half, I find myself with little I actually want to write about right now… Genesis 9:20-27 did strike me — I […]

Rapture

In Matthew 24:29 (NASB), Christ says “But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear […]

Spoon Theory

This one is more of a personal entry than anything else, but someone shared this article somewhere today and I found it really well written. If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to live with a disability that causes pain and fatigue, this is a good read… http://www.butyoudontlooksick.com/the_spoon_theory/ I finally got to a dr […]

like a dead man

Okay since I didn’t sleep last night for working on code, and I didn’t sleep today for lack of common sense, I’m too tired to do any reading today. However, I never really did a real entry for yesterday, and I did read yesterday. In my sleep-deprived state, the one thing I clearly remember from […]
