The Hours: July 23, 2016

(G sent this song to A at 7:24 am because she was inspired by it)

Thoughts that floated around today (these were all brought up by different people):


9:42: “You see Jesus did not tell the woman who had been caught in adultery a conditional promise of ‘go, be good, and then I will love you…’ No, he said first that he didn’t condemn her, and then he told her to go and be set free from the life that had her in chains…” (Mr. Zork)

10:30: “The teacher notes say, that Ephesians 2:10 states: ‘For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ The word ‘workmanship’ is translated from the word ‘poiēma’, from which we get the word for poem, art. We are God’s work of art and creation, created with the purpose to do good works…” (G quoting the Sabbath School quarterly)

11:15: “I don’t understand a word that man is saying.” (T)

11:20: “We need to get to know our neighbor; the person sitting next to us!” (R)

11:20: “Maybe I would if people weren’t such arrogant ********.” (T)

11:50: “I thought that chapter was over, but here I am, watching things work in direct opposition to what I thought would be.” (L)

11:51: “What if we aren’t meant to understand it all.” (G)

11:52: “Potiphar, jail– that didn’t make sense for Joseph, did it?” (N)


12:00: “Be patient… There is still a lot I don’t understand…” (E)

12:10: “We are all growing.” (G)

12:15: “I was on this cycle thing, and then my colleague fainted! She passed out from heat stroke, and now, here I am drinking a ton of water. I had never seen that happen before!” (E)

5:42: “I am petrified! [Why are so many marriages struggling], and how do things get to that point…?” (G)

5:42: “God didn’t give you the spirit of fear fran. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Speak and believe the best and never stop working on your relationship.” (F)

6:00: “No matter what happens, He is constant; He is near.” (G in journal entry)
