genesis 33: restoration

Jacob was about to see his brother, Esau, for the first time since the "great deception" that cheated Esau out of his birthright and stole his blessing. Jacob was scared and divided up his wives and children to hopefully save some of them if Esau attacked. In Jacob's mind, he was Esau's enemy, and for… Continue reading genesis 33: restoration

the lie behind ‘you are enough’

I've written about this topic before, more than once. Just stating upfront that I am aware that this is not the first time I've brought it up in our conversations. I didn't forget and you can stop trying to spell d-e-m-e-n-t-i-a in your head. I don't have it. But I do have a passion for… Continue reading the lie behind ‘you are enough’

I can't pretend to understand… Continue reading this virus and what we know

genesis 31: all that is ours

Then the Lord said to Jacob, “Go back to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, and I will be with you.” Isaac told his son not to marry a Canaanite woman, but to take a wife from his mother's family. So Jacob left to go find a wife among his own people. Now, twenty years… Continue reading genesis 31: all that is ours
