A place where angels and dragons muse, where princes and princesses find themselves. A place for God to share His word
Category Archives: Women of the Bible: A Study
What can women who lived over 2000 years ago teach us about living in today’s hectic world? The answer to that question is; Lots, especially if you are looking to God for the answers. Through Eve, the Mother of all and of original sin. Sarah and Hagar tried to take matters into their own hands. Rachel and Leah are two sisters fighting for the love of one man. Delilah is an example of how we shouldn’t behave. Naomi and Ruth, a mother and her daughter-in-law, we see self sacrifice. Michal and Bathsheba show us the positive and negative side of forgiveness and tolerance. With Elizabeth, we see the willingness to look past her own triumphs while she seeks to help someone whose triumphs will eclipse her own. Mary, the mother of Jesus besides being an example for all mothers, gives us an example of totally giving oneself to God. Mary Magdalene will show us about finding love and satisfaction with God.
Through these women we can learn how to keep our faith and follow God’s path in even the most trying of times. They prove that God is always with us no matter how far we fall as long as we look to Him for forgiveness and love.
The lessons span the eons and these women still have lessons to teach us.
I will be expanding my website and here is an explanation of what that entails.
The website Palace of Twelve Pillars is still about books, but my reach is extending. Where in the past I have focused on YA and MG books with a few adult books sprinkled in I am now going to add the faith factor.
I am currently working on a series of devotions based on my book Women of the Bible: A Study. I am hoping that an phone app Refocus will pick it up, but even if they don’t I will be bringing the videos and devotions to this a page of my website that has been almost silent while I focused on my other books.
I am really excited and a little scared about this project and can’t wait for you all to see it.
I also am going to start sharing more books about faith in addition to the books I already share. But have no fear I will still share YA and MG with a sprinkling of adult over at Dragon’s Muse. You can be sure Myrria and Sir E. Robert Smythe will not let me give up on that.
Standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother, His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple He loved standing there, He said to His mother, “Woman, here is your son.” He said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. (John 19: 25-27)
At Jesus crucifixion, Mary’s noble bearing of her loneliness and heartache can give us comfort in our times of anguish and pain. She silently endured what she knew she could not change and realized she needed to be strong to help the remaining apostles in their continuing mission.
Mary stayed with Jesus when most of the others had abandoned Him. For her faith and love, Jesus rewarded her by entrusting her care to his beloved disciple, John. Her acceptance of God’s will at the foot of the cross in the greatest lesson Mary will give us.
Questions to Ponder:
Would I so willingly accept God’s will in the face of such anguish and pain?
Would I be willing to learn God’s lesson and share it with the world?
Would I turn to God or away from God in my greatest need?”
