Don't Believe the Hype

Have you ever felt as if your life was going around in circles?  You try to move forward, but circumstances keep you at bay whether it is financial, fear, doubt, or the task seems impossible.  It can bring you to the point of frustration, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. I refer to frustration as a two sided coin. Frustration can cause you to make hasty decisions or it can cause you to question and search for answers. I am acquainted with the feeling of life going around in circles because I use to be that person.  I tend to believe that everything in your life serves a purpose, even frustration. God can use anything to redirect your steps and change your life.  “1 Corinthians 1:27 -But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty”.
The revelation as to why I believed my life was going around in circles did not come to me overnight. But, when it did come the t…

Miriam

Miriam was the big sister of Moses. Her name (sometimes rendered as Mary in English) means 'bitter' although it could also signify 'one who loves or is loved by Yahweh'. Yahweh means 'the self-existent one'. Yahweh is one of the ways the children of Israel referred to God. Meet the family
Amram and Jochebed were the father and mother of Miriam, Aaron and Moses. Moses was the youngest of the three yet became the leader of the pack (Exodus 2:3-4; Exodus 6:20; Numbers 26:59). Moses was the man who led Israel out of Egypt.
As the big sister of the family Miriam knew all the secrets. Women often get to know about things that men don't.
When Pharaoh of Egypt decreed the death of all Israel baby boys in a desperate attempt to curb the growth of Israel, Amram and Jochebed put baby Moses into a waterproof basket and set it on the river in an attempt to save his life. It was Miriam who was watching the basket when the daughter of Pharaoh discovered it. It was Miriam wh…

Deborah

Deborah was a prophet, a leader (otherwise known as a Judge) in Israel as well as the wife of Lappidoth (Judges 4:4). 

Deborah means 'bee'. Bees are responsible for pollination of flowering plants. Pollination is what creates seeds that grow into other plants. One third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination of plants and bees play a major role in this1. The biblical Deborah, like a bee, fulfilled an active and vital role in bringing life to the community.
BackgroundAfter the death of Joshua, the man who had led the Israelites into the land of Canaan, God raised up Judges to lead and rule Israel. The first Judges God used were Othniel, Ehud and Shamgar (Judges 3). And then came Deborah.
In Deborah's day Israel had no overall leader. Everyone did whatever they pleased and the nation fell into sin and were oppressed by the Canaanites (Judges 21:25). Jabin was the Canaanite king during the era of Deborah. Sisera was the commander of Jabin's army. The Canaanite…
