What would you wish for?

When we started our new bible study we were all asked what our favorite bible story was.

Now, I have to tell you I have many favorites, but I knew that they were probably the same ones that everyone else had, so I tried to think of one that doesn't get talked about as much.

So when we went around the table telling our stories, I was glad to hear that no one picked mine.

Do you know what it is?

Mine was the story about Solomon being asked by God, if he could have anything he wanted what would he ask for?

First of all can you imagine being able to ask for whatever you wanted?
Seriously?  I just can't even wrap my head around that one.

OK, so Solomon, who loved the Lord, asked him for discernment in governing his country in the way God would have him do it.  He asked for wisdom.  Because he knew he needed God's help to be a good king.

God was so impressed with Solomon's answer that he told him because he didn't ask for anything for himself, he would be given what he asked for and MORE.  He was given wealth, honor, and there was not then, or has ever been, a king as great as Solomon.  

Isn't that an amazing story of obedience, look at what God did for a man who asked for something with a pure heart, and all he wanted was to please God.  

Yes, I know, as time goes on Solomon loses his way, but look at what God did with him when he was trying to please him.  He was the wisest king EVER, and people came from all over the world to hear him speak.

You see even Solomon wasn't perfect, but look at how God blessed him for being obedient, imagine what he can do for you.

Sunday Scripture

Do to others what you want them to do to you.
This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets.

Rambling on

Whew, man it has been a long time since I posted.

You know how sometimes you can miss something a few times and be like, Ok, tomorrow I am definitely getting back to that.  Then tomorrow comes and you don't feel like you have anything worth saying.

Yes, that's how it's been for me.

But, I have not been sitting idly by doing nothing.

Mr. Wonderful started painting the kitchen cabinets.  He did the upper and I am doing the bottom a different color.  So more to come on that.

Also, I have started a union jack coffee table.  

But started is as far as I have gotten.  As in I have the tape on, but that's as far as I've gotten but at least that should go pretty quick so keep your fingers crossed.

Also we have started back to our bible study and it has been great.

More on that later.

So I will leave you on this gorgeous Friday afternoon with this.

Somewhere off the Carolina coast.
