Weekend Update

Last week in Blogland proved to be quite interesting and thought-provoking. Boomama started it off with this discussion about the Sovereignty of God, which led to many more discussions and shared testimonies, lots of encouragement and prayers for those who are struggling, and most importantly, evidence of the very topic of discussion. The way I see it, it was no coincidence that some of those who visited her blog that day and participated in the discussion were brought together. Yes, I believe He orchestrated it so that those who are struggling would be ministered to by those who had endured similar trials.

I am currently working to formulate a coherent response to Lori's post at Rattling Around, and like her, I'm sure in my beliefs but unsure of my ability to explain them to someone else. I do love a challenge. I seem to have more questions than answers, but I trust God even when I don't fully understand His ways. I hope you'll weigh in with your thoughts.

Brenda,

Don't 'cha just love when you have the opportunity to finetune your belief system! I love a good dialogue-but I too am hesitant to just put into print something that I haven't given recent thought to!

Have a great day!

I love blogging, for a lot of reasons. This is one of the best. Thinking through what we believe and why. Worthy of our time.

Wow! I totally missed that discussion this weekend...I was busy with kpjara's interest in women leading the church to attract more women to the church.

Anyway...I've been to Lori's and posted my 2 cents. Thanks for the "heads-up."

I thought the same thing about BooMama's post. God works in mysterious ways.

Good stuff! Thanks for directing us. I totally believe in the soverignty of God. Nothing goes on that doesn't pass through his approval system. And He is on control. He is a redeeming God and make something beautiful about something rotten.

BooMama did start quite a conversation out here. And I agree with Bev. Something like this reassures me I'm not wasting my time when I sit here. xoxoxo
