By no stretch of the imagination are we Biblical scholars, we are just two girls who love Jesus and have a hunger and a thirst for His Word. Scripture Sunday will be a weekly feature in which we share the ways in which Jesus is speaking to our hearts through His Word.
Oh my goodness. We have been out of school, home, for about 3 weeks now and I think we are more busy being at home that we were when we had to leave the house by 6:30am each morning.
We’re still awake and up by 6:30am (maybe they’ll adjust to summer hours by mid-August just in time to go back to school) we just don’t have to rush to get out the door each morning.
I was hoping to write and post more frequently this summer but that has not been the case; these boys keep their Mama busy.
Just in the time that I have been trying to pull this post together I have been interrupted to give a boy a waffle, open a bag of chips for another boy, pour drinks for both boys, turn the TV to Paw Patrol, and make their “favorite kind of bread (frozen garlic Texas Toast).
Are you getting an idea as to why it has been so difficult to be productive? 😉
I’m trying! 😉
I am just now (on Wednesday) posting my Scripture Sunday video. I ask for grace. 😉
So, my Sunday video posted on Wednesday followed by the Scripture from the video …..
1But the Israelites were unfaithful in regard to the devoted things; Achanson of Karmi, the son of Zimri,the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of them. So the Lord’s anger burned against Israel.
2 Now Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is near Beth Aven to the east of Bethel, and told them, “Go up and spy out the region.” So the men went up and spied out Ai.
3 When they returned to Joshua, they said, “Not all the army will have to go up against Ai. Send two or three thousand men to take it and do not weary the whole army, for only a few people live there.” 4 So about three thousand went up; but they were routed by the men of Ai, 5 who killed about thirty-six of them. They chased the Israelites from the city gate as far as the stone quarries and struck them down on the slopes. At this the hearts of the people melted in fear and became like water.
6 Then Joshua tore his clothes and fell facedown to the ground before the ark of the Lord, remaining there till evening. The elders of Israel did the same, and sprinkled dust on their heads. 7 And Joshua said, “Alas, Sovereign Lord, why did you ever bring this people across the Jordan to deliver us into the hands of the Amorites to destroy us? If only we had been content to stay on the other side of the Jordan! 8 Pardon your servant, Lord. What can I say, now that Israel has been routed by its enemies? 9 The Canaanites and the other people of the country will hear about this and they will surround us and wipe out our name from the earth. What then will you do for your own great name?”
10 The Lord said to Joshua, “Stand up! What are you doing down on your face?11 Israel has sinned; they have violated my covenant, which I commanded them to keep. They have taken some of the devoted things; they have stolen, they have lied, they have put them with their own possessions. 12 That is why the Israelites cannot stand against their enemies; they turn their backs and run because they have been made liable to destruction. I will not be with you anymore unless you destroy whatever among you is devoted to destruction.
