Genesis 23. Three words

Okay give me a few words to get you to read genesis 23. Wow.

Word one- tears
Word two- death
Word three- kingdom minded.

Just read it and see if you see what I do. Ask questions and I will answer them.

Emotions

How are you feeling?

No really how are you feeling?

Do you really want to know or are you asking to make your self feel better?

Well I am feeling good!

Really?

Yeah I feel fine!

Eric, how do you feel?

I feel as if I have been left in a dry place. Like my world has been flipped upside down. I'm angry at people for asking how I am doing and mad at the ones not asking. I want to be left alone but I want everyone around me.

Really I just want to scream and cry and smile. I am happy that my mom is not in pain for once in my life. I am happy my mom is at peace in the arms of Joshua(Jesus).

I am sad. Sad because my son will not know his grandma. She might have made life's crazy but she made three life's. My brother, sister and I owe her that much.

I want to sleep. Mainly so I can get some rest. I want to be picked up by God and held in his arms for a few days so that I can rest.

Mostly I want to say I Love You. But that will never happen again. If you still have your mom, no matter the relationship with her call her and say those three words. Cling on her.

May God give me peace, rest, and joy. I love you family.

God and Abraham

Wow what a morning. As a stand in line at the DMV I am reading the end of Genesis 21 and started Genesis 22.

Already I can see that Genesis 22 is going to be a glimpse of who Jesus Christ is. Look at Genesis 22:1-2 and you see that God temps Abraham to offer his only son. Wait. Stop. You typed that wrong Abraham has two sons. Well the way God works is he wipes away our sins and I call it as I read it, Abraham's first son was conceived out of Gods will. Causing him to be cast out because of sin.

So we have here God asking Abraham to give up the son he had been waiting for for many years.

Again I believe that it is a picture of what had happened to Jesus. God gave his only son who he loved and raised him up so the world would see his death on the cross.

Read on. Read up. Keep the Word of God in your hearts alive.

Genesis 22 is just the start of what God is doing in the life if his people.

What's your story? Is it perfect? Is it sad? It is your story will you share it?
