Weekend Word

Friday, February 18, 2011

{Welcome to the weekend! I've chosen a word from my Bible's concordance, and am sharing a few of the related verses. I hope you will consider theses verses over the weekend, and perhaps spend time in the Word finding others. If you don't have a Bible handy, here is a great online version. Till Monday. . .}


I picked this word because Hubby left today on a journey, a 9 day mission trip with our church. He is on his way to La Ceiba, Honduras, where he will be (as the boys like to say) "a builder-man." They are partnering with Habitat for Humanity, and you can follow their blog (and leave an encouraging word) here. I am encouraged because as I reviewed this word, I discovered that asking God for protection, success, and safety during a journey is not unusual. . .

The Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast desert. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything. Deuteronomy 2:7

Then they said to him, "Please inquire of God to learn whether our journey will be successful." The priest answered then, "Go in peace. Your journey has the Lord's approval." Judges 18:5-6

There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. Ezra 8:21

  1. I'm excited to hear about Jim's trip when he returns. I know he's going to have an amazing experience. I'll be praying for him and his group.

  2. Precious that he will have a testimony for all he has seen God do to share with your boys.

  3. My sis sent her man off on a mission trip...he, in his mind was going to 'protect his daughter' that was going too. HE came back completely TRANSFORMED....so be ready for a man who is ON FIRE for Jesus....very exciting!

  4. Lifting up your husband, what a blessing for him to be able to go and serve the Lord in this way!
