Put Your Hope In The LORD

Written by Amanda Giobbi | November 30, 2010 |

Here’s what we already know about the book of Isaiah:

*Isaiah was an advisor to the kings of Judah
*At the time he was writing there was a civil war in Israel and the land was split into North (Israel) and South (Judah)
*Isaiah means “the Lord saves”
*Isaiah doesn’t skirt around using harsh wording

In Chapters 9-12 Isaiah comments on the current situation of the North …

The Coal

Written by Heather Zempel | November 30, 2010 | Isaiah 5 - 8

I’ve never gotten my mouth washed out with soap. Which is shocking given that the majority of sin issues I struggle with seem to be concentrated in that area. As a kid, I had quite the smart mouth, wisecracking mouth, sarcastic mouth. And it hasn’t improved a whole lot as an adult.

Isaiah 6 is one of my favorite chapters in the entire Bible. In fact, it was the text …

Isaiah

Written by Maegan Stout | November 29, 2010 | Isaiah 1 - 4

Isaiah is a prophetic Book. It’s also poetic. 


The purpose of the Book of Isaiah is to call the nation of Judah back to God and to prophecy about God’s salvation through the coming Messiah. It’s because of books like Isaiah (and other prophetic books) that Israel was familiar with the notion of waiting and anticipating redemption. It’s the foreshadowing of God’s promise that would be …

Praise the Lord!

Written by Reagan Chaney | November 28, 2010 |

Hosanna - Hillsong

Psalm 146-150 is a great way to end our Thanksgiving Holiday. As we prepare for a season of joy and celebration it is important to remember to Praise the Lord always. It is extremely easy to get wrapped up in the madness of the “to do” list, the shopping list, the activity list and all the reminders we post all over our desk …

Great is the Lord!

Written by Heather Corsi | November 27, 2010 |

I love the holidays.

I love the food. The family. The friends.  The decorations.  The music.  I love it all. 

I love that it’s a time to be reminded of how blessed we are and to tell others how much we love them.  I love that we get to take some time off from work and just be with our friends and family.  My family is a little loud …

Wait, Waiting & Trust (Psalm 130-133)

Written by Jenilee LeFors | November 24, 2010 | Psalms 130 - 133

“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord.” – Psalm 130:5-6 (ESV)

Waiting or patience: Neither of which are my strong-suit. I have a hard time waiting for things I want or desire. I am personally working on being the person that God wants me to be, and yet I feel like a failure most of the time. …

God’s Timeline vs. My Timeline

Written by Andy Pisciotti | November 23, 2010 | Psalms 127 - 129

The Bible is all about who God was, is, and will always be.  Even though I know this to the core, I often find myself stuck with the question, “How does this relate?” 

Today I read, “It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.” (Psalm 127:2)  And then read, “Like …

Laughter, Song, Joy (Psalm 124-126)

Written by Nina Schmidgall | November 22, 2010 | Psalms 124 - 126

Psalm 126:1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with songs of joy;

Recently, Joel and I were working on our family values – the things with which we want to be intentional in our home.  We came across a resource that suggested some questions to get …

Repetition is the key to learning

Written by Kurtis Parks | November 20, 2010 | Psalms 116 - 118

When I was a pastor’s kid growing up in the church, one thing I vividly remember my dad saying throughout his sermons was this key phrase – “Repetition is the key to learning.” I think the Psalmist here had the same idea in mind. It is amazing to me how many times the phrase “His love endures forever” is repeated throughout the book of Psalms. If there’s one thing that …
