I get frustrated with myself on so many fronts, I can't keep up.
My memory, but I don't drink water. Don't like water.
My attitude towards people. My mannerisms. Anti-socialite. Supposed to love people and help them. I want to throw up my hand and say, "talk to the hand." Don't bother me.
How I use my time. This is a biggie cause everything else derives from what I put into myself. Thoughtless hours looking at facebook feeds.
Nehemiah 6. Nehemiah has finished the walls around Jerusalem and word is getting around that God's people are strengthening their position. Leaders from around the region have great respect for Jews; they are afraid of what might happen if the city is successfully fortified against attack -- they themselves are vulnerable to attack. So a dialogue is opened between neighboring countries and Israel.
Who is Jesus? Everyone seems to have their own opinion of who Jesus is, or was, depending on your foundational beliefs. But here's a thought--who is Phil Lilley?
He's a person, a guy. He has certain physical traits, intellect, personality characteristics, beliefs. He is what he is, nothing else.
Google searches say that to be offended is: to be resentful or annoyed, typically as a result of a perceived insult.
If you're a follower, believer of Christ, can you be offended? Insulted? I guess we can. We can allow ourselves to be. But do we have the right to be?
When did God provide what the Israelites needed in the desert, food and water?
Ex. 15:22-25 Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea and they went into the Desert of Shur. For three days they traveled in the desert without finding water. 23 When they came to Marah, they could not drink its water because it was bitter. (That is why the place is called Marah.[a]) 24 So the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What are we to drink?” 25 Then Moses cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. He threw it into the water, and the water became fit to drink.
