Willing


It is a new year, and no doubt over this last week you have come across some form of media that talks about making new years resolutions. Perhaps you have made some yourself. According to a recent pole 4 of the top 10 new years resolutions have something to do with improving ones physical health. While physical health is important, my focus for this year is not so much on the physical as it is on the spiritual. I want my life this year to be summed up in two words willing and obedient. No matter what this year may hold may God find me available and willing to obey whenever he calls my name. May it be said of me, “ She burned bright for the Lord and kept others warm around her.”
Genesis 22 1-18



May God Richly Bless You This Year,
Melissa

What a moving song and video! I had chills when Isaac was laid on the altar. Lord, increase my faith....

Wow...that is a very moving video! Abraham and Issac were one of the examples of "By Faith" that I wrote about yesterday. I can't image having that kind of faith to be willing to sacrifice my son.

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing video with us.

Happy TSMSS!

Beautiful! I love this account from the Bible - I was reading it just the other day with my kids. Beautiful picture of Christ coming as our sacrificial lamb.
