what a beautiful name {jehovah-rapha: my healer}

Are you feeling broken? Wounded? Worn out? Ashamed? I have good news. Our God is Jehovah-Rapha: Healer. I mentioned before that our ladies’ Bible study group is working on The Names of God Bible Challenge. Though I’ve only just started sharing with you, we are actually about half-way through it.

what a beautiful name {El-Roi}

It was time to pick another guide for our Ladies’ Bible Study group. If you’ve ever led a study like this, you know the choices can be overwhelming. I usually begin by asking the Lord for direction. I go to the ladies to see if they have any particular study they’d like to do, then…… Continue reading what a beautiful name {El-Roi}

joy in the everyday ~ psalm 30:5

Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, we are using Rachel…… Continue reading joy in the everyday ~ psalm 30:5
