The faith journeys of Colton and Marshall.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34

Deuteronomy 31&32

That song was a beautiful summary of how and why we should follow God. It had examples of His Greatness and examples of His wrath. It was the right length to share important information for the generations to come and see what was told and foretold.I pray for the courage and the strength and theContinue reading “Deuteronomy 31&32”

deuteronomy 23

23:1 “No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord.” just the thought… ouch! thank Jesus we can come as we are for those of us who have suffered horrible accidents or have a birth defect… 5 “But the Lord your God would not listen toContinue reading “deuteronomy 23”

Deuteronomy 22

Ok, not sure where to start with this chapter… so many interesting rules amd laws to live by back then… like pastor Todd mentioned, they may seem weird and strange but were actually instilled to keep order and made lots of sense compared to the much earlier laws or lack thereof.

I need the Lord’s strength daily and constantly. But even when it comes to connecting withContinue reading “100% Pure”

Deuteronomy 11

“See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse:” If I had to choose between the blessing and the curse – I would choose the blessing by being obedient and by teaching my children and see that they teach their children by reminding the generation I am in and the future oneContinue reading “Deuteronomy 11”

Deuteronomy seven

I absolutely love how different people get different things but just as the pastor said there are many lessons in every chapter from this chapter i got a reassurance that God chooses me, He chose me before I chose Him. He will move obstructions from my life. He will clear paths for me.. move mountainsContinue reading “Deuteronomy seven”
