welcome

these are my thoughts as I walk through the hills and valleys laid before me...

I did my nails in a French manicure the other day for an industry event. Now it’s half falling off but I keep forgetting to grab the nail polish remover. However ugly I think it might look to see the pretty (and fake) nails juxtaposed to the original (and slightly dirty – how do people […]

What a coincidence. I actually wanted to do a study on James myself…it’s actually SO good. So many things to write about… James raises interesting points in regards to faith without works being dead. While we know that our salvation comes by grace alone, we cannot earn it ourselves, we are still called into action […]

Well hello there, super encouraging chapter! One of my favourite parts of the letters in the New Testament is the parts where they talk about Christian living. It’s usually a lot of super short concepts all strung together, and to unpack it all takes a while. But in the end, we’re left with a lot […]

There are so many things to talk about from this passage, I’m not sure what to write about. The part that stood out to me today was 11:24-25: “By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God […]

Hebrews is steadily becoming one of my favoured books of the Bible. Today we learn more about the significance of Christ being the high priest for us. He overcomes the sacrifices that were necessary before. Instead of constantly sacrificing animals for our sins, we are covered by the blood of Christ. Now he can enter […]

Ok seriously I need to stop writing about what the next day’s readings are. Legit. Plus, there is my answer to who Melchizedek is, right there in chapter 7. mm…I sense inklings of old and new covenant theology things here, but I don’t know much about the nitty gritties involving that, so we’ll just stick […]

So yesterday talking about the high priest thing sort of jumped the gun, but i will continue today. I noted that I’ve read about the order of Melchizedek in Psalms, but I actually still didn’t know what it was…so I looked it up ­čśÇ Apparently he was the dude in Genesis who blessed Abram after […]

Rest is a wonderful thing. And God has invited us to come and join his rest. However, it is because of Jesus that we are even able to do so. Jesus is greater than angels, as discussed yesterday, but he is also greater than Moses, as discussed today. And even though we turn away, just […]

I haven’t read Hebrews in a while, so I’m looking forward to this week. Reading Hebrews 1 and most of 2, I can’t hep but be struck by the┬ásupremacy┬áthat is Christ’s. It’s interesting that angels are used as a comparison, but it makes sense for new believers who had previously only heard about God and […]

God’s plan for Onesimus and Philemon were not exactly what they had picked out for themselves. I don’t think it would have been in Onesiumus’ thought process to return, and I’m fairly confident it wasn’t in Philemon’s plan to accept him back with open arms. Also, they probably didn’t plan on being converted. Be that […]
