“Glo” — One of My New Bibles

Good Saturday afternoon!

Yesterday I bought two new Bibles: The Books of the Bible Bible, and Glo. These two Bibles are completely opposite tools.

The Books of the Bible Bible takes the Bible back to the first century. It presents Scripture without chapters, verses, columns, study notes, etc. It is intended to give us a different set of insights into Scripture because of those edits.

The Glo Bible is strictly digital immersion in The Word. It provides five “lenses” through which to read and study The Word. Those “lenses” are called Bible, Timeline, Atlas, Topical and Media. It took 1-2 hours to install “Glo” completely. Then, I went to the tutorial, which I think you will also enjoy. This looks like a really great tool for studying the Bible, and even for teaching it. I would love for every teenager to have access to this, too. It would help make The Word more understandable for them, I’m sure. Frankly, I expect it will give anyone who cares to learn to use it a whole lot of insights that we’ve never had available.

I LOVE technology–especially things like this!

Here’s the link to the first of 8 steps in this short tutorial:

Hope you like it, and buy it! (I get nothing but satisfaction from this referral! 😉  )

“There is no peace on earth,” I said…

This particular poem/Christmas carol by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882), 1867 is very appropriate today, in light of the events in Newtown, Connecticut yesterday…

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
And in despair I bowed my head:
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men.
“Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882), 1867

Praise God in the Tough Times…for good reason!

Another day, another night. Time to catch some zzzz’s. Life is always pretty interesting to me, but the last two months, and more specifically, the last two weeks…have been very challenging.

Though I was tempted at times to give in to worry…The Lord wouldn’t let me. He reminded me that He created everything out of nothing, so He certainly can take care of me and my family! The way He chooses to take care of us may not look like I think it should look, but He definitely is taking care of us!

In fact, as I stepped back and observed the “big picture” with new eyes, I could see that He was drawing my family closer than we’ve ever been before. I also was able to see my son with new eyes, and I can’t explain how much pride I have in his newly evidenced maturity!

And once again I am reminded why The Lord wants the sacrifice of praise when we’re in tough times… He knows that when we do that, we foil the plans of the devil! Face it…he wants to destroy those who aren’t born again simply because he hates God so much that he wants to keep as many of His beloved humans from following Him! And, since he can’t destroy those of us who belong to Him through our born-again nature, then the enemy wants to make us ineffective Christians.

So when you are in tough times, friends…Praise The Lord! Sing praises to Him! Thank Him for allowing the tough times so that you can grow closer to Him, and so that The Lord will have a more effective army on this earth! And so you can destroy the enemy of God, and make his efforts powerless against you and yours!

AMEN! Hallelujah!
