Andy B found a great bible reading plan on YouVersion, that led him to 1 Samuel 16, and the account of David killing Goliath. As amazing as that piece of scripture is, at 58 verses in length, David’s actions with those stones, only takes up 1 little verse. As amazing as that, Andy B saw an ever greater act of heroism.
Samuel is an prophet, with an amazing prophet to speak for God to people. With that comes the other side of a great relationship with God – actually having to speak what God is telling Samuel to say. Enter Jesse and his sons! Samuel is to choose the next king. But, having checked in with God, none of those sons are acceptable to God to become King. Was Samuel wrong? Or is there a bigger picture to this? Andy B imagined Samuel with a drop of sweat as the last son passed, and the answer came from God that, no, this wasn’t the right person to become King…
The book of James helps Andy B get real about some struggles he’s been having with being double minded. It’s never easy admitting you’ve been getting something wrong. But there is a beauty of the conviction that comes from getting honest with God, and allowing the Holy Spirit to minister to us as God’s hand crafted people.
We are on a few different social media platforms because of BerryBunch.family. But our absolute favourite BY . A . MILE . is DingDash, created by the wonderful folks behind Back to Jerusalem. DingDash is about making Dings (Dings and Dashes comes from the way letters were made in Morse Code) – when you reach 1,000 Dings (interactions), you get a little change to an icon that accompanies your profile – it changes to a little Ninja! Ss we got nearer to our 1,000th Ding, I started to get a little nervous about what I’d want to be that 1,000th interaction; that 1,000th Ding; that move to Ninja status and our next post or conversation.
Jo Jo tells an amazing account of something that happened a very long time ago – when a small boy, called David, defeated his greatest foe and enemy, in the form of a 9 feet tall giant named Goliath. David wasn’t thought of as much of anything – his courage, that day, changed everything. And this event changed history, but all because David trusted to his unique training while looking after his dad’s sheep. Dave the Dog joins Jo Jo as they retell this super amazing piece of history.
For Art time, Jo shows us how to create your very own Happy Stones Picture. Jo Jo provides a template you can use for your drawing, or you can create your own. This is a super simple Art Time you’ll love!
