A Shower of Praise! (Miriam)

Image
As I drove home in the rain today, I was thanking God for another "car wash"..lol. My car was filthy from the previous snow storm and in need of a shower from heaven. It was great to know that I was safe and dry inside while the Lord was making Jackie (that's my car's name) all clean again. She looked like she just came from the car wash minus the wax. I was inspired to get cleaned up myself!

Maybe I am the only one who gets their praise on in the shower. There is just something about being clean and pure before God that lends itself to praise. Many people sing in the shower. It's refreshing and there is a certain "newness" and "freedom" one can express while getting all clean.

Women carrying the Seed (Tamar/Potiphar's Wife)

In this video, I discuss Genesis 38 & 39 which tell the stories of Tamar (Judah ' s daughter-in-law) and Potiphar's wife.




Here are some other things to think about:

What all does this seed represent?

What things in your life are acting to prevent the seed from growing or developing?

There are seasons of seed-bearing and harvest. Where do you find yourself now? How do you know?

I would love to hear your feedback on this study as well as questions and/or comments!
