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.

Andy B 2 Minute Video, Samuel, David and Uncertainty, S3, E2

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.

If you’re not a fan of giant spiders, read on!

This is kind of, all about, the very opposite of giant spiders, as Andy B looks at how projected images distort reality!

So where in our lives, are we fearing something terrifying and monstrous – when it is really just a projected image making something look bigger than it really is?

When we’re recording Jo’s Art Videos we mostly do this from directly above, so what she is doing can be most easily seen and followed along with.

Andy loves problem solving, so used some leftover cardboard to make a special, unique, bespoke cradle to hold a mobile phone on a mic. stand………..which got him thinking about how God never gives up on us and how we need to keep trying sometimes, even though our first or second attempts really don’t go so well.

We recently started using a replacement microwave after our old faithful one, of more than a decade, showed its age quite a bit.

Anyway, we get through quite a bit of rice, and have used a microwave rice maker for the past two decades.

Andy B 2 Minute Video, Car Wheels and Realignment, S1, E11

During our morning Church Service today there was lots of talk of God lighting up the path ahead of us; of how He illuminates the next part of the road that we need to drive along and how, as we move into that next stretch, God then lights up the next part and so on.

This reminded me about a time, recently, when we had to get the wheels on our car realigned. They simply were not all pointing in the same direction

So we had to replace a door seal/gasket from our washing machine which was starting to fail.

While we caught it before it had a chance to cause any damage to anything, it got me wondering about how connected we are to God – where our seals are perished or warped, and allowing stuff to get in between us and God that shouldn’t.

In this 2 Minute Video, Andy B looks at a blow up booster seat that’s destined for the bin.

But if it doesn’t work, it is pointless, dangerous and needs replacing. Until it is no longer needed. Then, whether it works or not, it isn’t needed.

Andy B, 2 Minute Video, Boats, Ships And Resting, S1, E5

While sitting in the car, waiting for Jo to get some printing sorted, I saw a Cruise Liner, which got me thinking about resting, both passively and actively.

So, sitting, in our car, to the tune of rain beating on the roof, it got me pondering about how we rest; if God rested on the 7th day for the world – setting a beautiful rhythm for us to follow – and if we can rely on God, how does this affect our intentional resting as the children he adores?
