Thirty Days in Isaiah 53 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 21: Surprise! Catch Up a Day Early!

I’m going to declare today Catch-Up day, instead of waiting for tomorrow! That’s because I need a catch-up day after three days of flower buying, flower hauling, flower arranging, and flower clean-up for an almost-family wedding. (It didn’t help either, when my computer ate two different posts this week after I had finished writing them. ) If you want an extra lesson today, read Psalm 22. Pay special attention to how […]

30DaysIsa53Day17Despised

I feel like I’m spinning around in circles trying to decide which direction to take our study of verse 3! We could spend hours on just this one verse! We could use the interlinear and dictionaries to study each word in the verse. We could study other verses that include those same words. We could read through all the cross-references . We could listen to “The Gift of Suffering” lectures […]

I’m sure most of you will be able to put this catch-up day to good use! We’ve covered quite a bit of ground over the past week.
