From the Famous to the Unknown

May 18, 2019: Jeremiah 6; Nahum 1-3.

Am I at a crossroads? Where is the tried and true road?

May 19, 2019: Jeremiah 8-10.

Am I on the wrong road?

Jeremiah 8:4, “Tell them this, God’s message: ‘Do people fall down and not get up? Or take the wrong road and then just keep going?’ ” The Message

May 20, 2019: Jeremiah 11-13.

Exactly what am I to do, Lord?

May 21, 2019: Jeremiah 14-16.

It’s still raining. The farmers can’t get in the fields. It’s time for the first cutting of hay and the fields aren’t even planted.

Jeremiah 14:4, “All the farm work has stopped. …The farmers don’t know what to do.” The Message

The basement leaked again. David picked up a new product yesterday. The fumes from that sealant when through the house. David opened one window and turned on fans.

The register was closed in the guest room. I read in there for a few hours.

May 22, 2019: Jeremiah 17; 2 Chronicles 35.

Under the weather. That’s what they used to call it. The doctor would say, “It’s just allergies.” It’s not even worth checking.

Obviously, I didn’t practice over the last few days. I worried I would play badly. I considered staying home from church.

2 Chronicles 35:16, “Everything went without a hitch in the worship of God…” The Message

I left it up to God and went to church anyway. Worship went without a hitch!

May 23, 2019: 2 Kings 23; Jeremiah 47, 22.

I’m reading, “Girl, Stop Apologizing” by Rachel Hollis. I asked myself the all-important question – “What if…”

  • What if I spent more time decorating, decluttering, and organizing my home?
  • What if I posted more on Instagram than on my blog?
  • What if I stopped posting daily posts?
  • What if I only posted the monthly chapter assignments?

I wondered, “Am I just chewing up portions of scripture and spitting it out as baby food for those who won’t read it themselves?”

2 Kings 23:2, “…people ranging from the famous to the unknown. Then he read out publicly everything written in the Book of the Covenant…” The Message

I am unknown, not famous. But the Bible is for everyone! The “Christian Standard Version” said, “…all the people from the youngest to the oldest.” I guess we still need people to supply baby food.
