Week in Review

This ‘n’ That

Some phrases I feel like I say frequently:

“Wait, didn’t we already do this?”
“I’m experiencing déjà vu.”
“I’m certain I’ve seen this someplace before!”

Don’t ask. The explanation would be even more confusing.

Some of my favorite déjà vu moments are when I’m reading a familiar Scripture passage and am taken back in my memory to the first time I truly understood that text. It’s a sweet reminder of how God graciously grows us in our knowledge, understanding, and application of His Word. And even when we’ve read a text many times before, it never ceases to be alive and relevant to us. The Bible truly is living and active (Hebrews 4:12).

Now, many of these links won’t be very relevant next year or even next month, but I nevertheless hope you enjoy your week in review (kind of):

  • Apparently there’s a name for my sub-generation.
  • I was really sad to see this. I have no idea where Alex Trebek stands spiritually, but I will certainly be praying for him.
  • If you need me, I’ll be watching Little House.
  • It often seems like gentleness is the forgotten fruit.
  • Looks more like a UFO to me.
  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable (thanks, Patty!).
  • This was a blow to my generation and a reminder that we are never guaranteed tomorrow. If you have not trusted in Christ for salvation, do not harden your heart. Today is the day of repentance.
  • Do you find it hard to pray?

It is possible for a Christian to be perfectly orthodox and yet to be defeated, and to be living a defeated and a useless life.
