Who’s the Queen? Part 2 of 2

Who’s the Queen? Part 2 of 2

March 18, 2022

Part 2 of 2. Abigail is an amazing woman. She has more dialogue than any other woman in scripture.  In 1 Samuel 25 She speaks positive words of life over David before he becomes King. She prophesies wonderful things about him. Then, her husband dies and she marries him. She marries him before he becomes King. Her prophesy doesn't exactly come true in David's life. And she's never heard from again. What happened? Why is she not the Queen? Why was she downgraded? What was God's intention for her and for David?

Dealing with a Wealthy Fool: Part 1 of 2

Dealing with a Wealthy Fool: Part 1 of 2

March 1, 2022

Part 1 of 2. David is on the run from Saul and betrayed repeatedly by his own tribe, the tribe of Judah. David and his men are treated with disrespect by Nabal, a wealthy fool from the tribe of Judah.  David has had enough! He is murderously angry. When David comes to settle the score, he gets a surprise. Nabal's wife Abigail comes to meet him to prevent him from making a massacre mistake that would haunt him the rest of his life. She prevents him from killing innocent people (along with her husband.) She prevents him from "saving by his own hand." Do you save by your own hand? Why is it important to wait for God and not save by our own hand?

Stressful Holiday Situations: Part 2

Stressful Holiday Situations: Part 2

December 20, 2021

Validation is vital when caught in a toxic shame spiral.  Cindy has shut herself in the upstairs bedroom and is prepared to boycott Thanksgiving. Jesus experienced abuse and toxic shame. Jesus experienced attempts to control from family and friends. He is able to validate and guide us through these difficult situations but it is not easy to connect when full of anger and adrenaline. How can you connect with God when you are stressed? Breathing is one of the  best ways to get your physiology back from the "fight or flight" response.  The mother-in-law will need boundaries in the future, but what can Cindy do now? She feels humiliated and it will take humility to rejoin the party. Was Jesus ever humiliated? If you were a guest, what might you offer Cindy to help her recover and rejoin the holiday?

Stressful Holiday Situations: Part 1

Stressful Holiday Situations: Part 1

December 17, 2021

Based on a true story. Tom and Cindy are having Thanksgiving at their house this year. Tom's mother wants to control the event and pulls a stunt that leaves Cindy angry and hurt. Tom wants to please his mother and doesn't validate Cindy's hurt. How do we deal with emotionally immature people during the holidays? What are the signs of an emotionally immature, abusive or narcissistic person? What do you do with the negative feelings you have? If you were a guest, what might you offer Cindy to help her recover and rejoin the holiday?  Did Jesus experience any poor treatment from people who wanted to control him? What can be done to recover from the offense?

Before Whom Are You Running?

Before Whom Are You Running?

December 3, 2021

Have you miscalculated when change would occur? Have you ever thought someone was following God but they were not? Have you ever been angry with God about what is happening in your country? Do you feel God isn't helping you? If so, you are in good company. Elijah is one of God's favorites yet suffers greatly from disillusionment and fatigue. Some of his suffering is caused by his own choices and some by others. Ultimately, God redeems all of Elijah's mistakes and ministers to his broken heart. We see evidence of a changed man. How does God validate Elijah's pain? Do you allow God to validate your pain?

The Bible text is from 1 Kings 16, 17, 18 for the Ahab/Elijah episode and 2 Kings 1 for the Amaziah/Elijah conflict.

Is The LORD Among Us…or Not?

Is The LORD Among Us…or Not?

November 19, 2021

How are you at interpreting data? How do you assess danger? What does God call a "bad report?" Have you been given a "bad report" that you are repeating? We are overloaded with data and it is always interpreted by a person with a bias–which includes every one of us. 
Bible text: Numbers 13-14 finds the Children of Israel at the border of the Promised Land. Twelve spies are sent to spy out the land and 10 return with a "Bad Report" according to God. The 10 spies saw the same sights but interpreted the data differently than the other two.  Joshua and Caleb tried to convince the people how God saw them and the land He promised them. They tried to tell the people God was with them but they were already too afraid. The people would not listen to God speaking wisdom through Joshua and Caleb. It kept them out of the Promised Land. Is your idea of the Promised Land one of rest and relaxation? If so, you may be in for a surprise.
Exodus 17:7 ...is The LORD among us or not?

Imagination 4 of 4: David‘s Battle and Yours

Imagination 4 of 4: David‘s Battle and Yours

November 5, 2021

Did King Saul really believe David could beat Goliath?

Your thoughts have substance in your brain. Thoughts change the physical structure of your brain. David's imagination was trained by meditating on God's mission. Even his family could not dissuade him.

Unless you become like a child you cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven. A child has a good imagination and childlike faith.

Can you imagine good things happening to you? What has God deposited in you for the battle this season?

Betrayals have happened to all of us. Have you been offended by someone? Forgiveness is important to move forward into joy. There are reasons we don't forgive. It gives energy. If you are energized by being critical of others, you may have someone to forgive.

Bitterness is like poison you drink while hoping someone else dies. If you don't forgive, your relationships will suffer.

Imagination 3 of 4: Goliath vs. David‘s Imagination

Imagination 3 of 4: Goliath vs. David‘s Imagination

October 28, 2021

Bible stories require imagination. The story of David and Goliath is no exception. You don't go up against a giant without a healthy imagination.

In 1 Samuel 16, at great danger to himself, Samuel anoints David in front of his brothers, who are jealous of him.

Goliath is described as an imposing human - like a tank.   David wants to know what he will gain if he kills Goliath. Does David imagine he will get into the palace by marrying the king's daughter?

How did David kill the lion and the bear? Did he use his sling like an underhand and overhand club (without releasing the stone)?

How would you counsel the boy David before he goes into battle against Goliath? Would you recommend he go or not?

What has David been practicing and dreaming as he keeps his sheep? Does he want to be the best shepherd in Israel or to be the best soldier?

What was David's spiritual journey?  What is yours?
