Weekend at home with Jonah

Last week I was very blessed to spend some time at home with my family. It's always a joy to be home. We chatted, sipped tea, worshipped together, and went on a bus trip to see Sight and Sound's production of Jonah. It was wonderful. They were faithful to the story in a way that left us in awe and wonder as the people of Israel danced across the stage, jellyfish descended over our heads, and a giant plant grew up over Jonah outside of Nineveh. I was so happy that I could see the show and wish I could see it many more times!

Work-related talk

November 1, 2012

Last week, I attended a very informative lecture held in memory of my former boss. I was almost late because I had stopped for a white chocolate mocha on the way. I found a seat near the door where one other lady was sitting. It was a bit surreal to be at a memorial lecture for someone who was so close to me and to know that many of the people in attendance may never have even met him.

This job has led down a hard road. But are any of the roads in this life easy ones?

The LORD God is my strength
He will make my feet like deer's feet
He will make me walk on my high hills

Why am I so hesitant to pray?

I feel as though I can't find the time and space to pray. When I do have time, I can't settle myself down enough to direct my focus and desire towards prayer. I think it'd be helpful to have a set time of day, but this is hard when I live in a shared house. I want to talk to God, theoretically, but when it comes down to actually beginning, I feel hesitant and mute. I then think about opening my prayerbook, but I feel overwhelmed by its length. I then think about opening my Noachide prayerbook, but by that point I just feel like giving up. What is wrong with me? Lord, open my lips, that my mouth would declare Your praise!

How can I live a life that makes God known?

I'm not a touchy-feely person either in word or in action. I'm also very hesitant to call other people by name, even if they are a close friend. I do this by email, but rarely in speech. In the same way, I don't often mention God by name in conversation. But how can I make God known among the nations if I'm reluctant to mention Him in my conversation?
