The Romance of Boaz and Ruth

This will be my last post for a while. I hadn’t written on my blog in over a year. It turns out I’d had a lot to say! Starting in September 26th I wrote a post almost every day. For the past 35 days I’ve written 33 posts (including this one). Each post was on…

The Strange Romance of Jacob and Rachel

Poor Leah. She really didn’t have much of a choice with things. But, we’ll get to that. After Jacob stole his brother’s blessing, Isaac commanded him to leave Canaan and search for a wife. The reasoning was the same as Abraham’s. It’s just interesting that Isaac didn’t send a servant to find his son a…

The story of Isaac and Rebekah Continues

Before we get to the romance of Jacob and Rachel… and Leah, we need to understand the situation that set all of this up. From my last post, it appears that Isaac and Rebekah are destined to live happily ever after. Well, the fairy tale part of their marriage is about to be over. Chapter…

The Romance of Isaac and Rebekah

Genesis 24: Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years. And the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. 2 And Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh, 3 that I may make you swear by the Lord,…

The “Romance” of Abraham and Sarah

As we explore the romantic relationships of the bible I want you to keep this in mind: What are the little foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) or problems in their marriage? Did they respond by resting or trusting in the Lord? (Spoiler alert… no) How did God respond to their sins of mistrust? Adam and…

Love Practical

The story of Troy is high in drama and excitement. Imagine a war fought over the love of a man and a woman! What passion! What wonder! What stupidity! It is a fun tale to say over the campfire. Who knows the real story behind it all. Maybe Helen had a role to play but…

The Romance in the Beginning

The first romance was very perfect, very elegant, very simple, and very practical. It made since. Genesis 2 18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every…

Cracked.com on SyFy Channel Change

Those who have pondered the reasons for the y’s might…

The Bible on Romance

The Bible on Romance How Should a Woman Pursue a Man? Well, unless the woman is a feminist, she should never pursue him. This is according to American cultural norms and even Christian churches. The man must always, without a doubt and at all times pursue the woman. It’s the woman’s job to wait for…

The Fruit of Forgiveness

Last night I wrestled in prayer with the Lord. He was asking me to do something He has been asking me to do for over a year. I did not want to do it anymore so I stepped away thinking because it wasn’t producing any fruit it wasn’t of Him. Then I prayed. And, despite…
