It's my birthday tomorrow, so hubs sent me into town for a coffee so that he could take the kids to buy presents (I assume!). * I am so behind on my bible reading (a bout of sickness got rid of any sense of routine in our house!) but I'm trying not to worry and have just picked up where I left off and am hoping to gradually pick up a few extra days here and there. * I've never taken my study bible out with me - it's big, heavy and conspicuous. I thought I might feel a bit awkward getting it out in public (silly I know!) but I found myself a little corner and it's been great! * I'm reading about Joshua and the walls of Jericho. Did you know they had to march round the walls in SILENCE until they got the command to sound the trumpets? * Who knows that sometimes, when acting in obedience, it's better to remain silent? Opening our mouths gives opportunity for doubt, discontent, opinions to get in the way and might discourage us from following through. Sometimes we've got to keep our mouths shut! * #coffeeandjesus #joshua #jericho #everydaywithjesus #readingtheword #biblestudying #bibledevotional #bible365 #shereadstruth #biblestudymoments #studyscripture #dailybiblereading #studythebible #readscripture #thebibleproject #bibleproject #intheword #faithlifestyle

⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want Jesus to shine through you?⠀ ⠀ Do you ever try to keep your faith to yourself? Are there ever times when you’re reluctant to let the people at work, your classroom, your sports team, or your family know that you’re a follower of Jesus?⠀ ⠀ As a photographer, I often get up early to shoot the sunrise ☀️—and the best mornings to shoot are when there’s a little cloud cover. You see, clouds help color the sky and add drama to a photos. And my favorite mornings are when the clouds are low and wispy like in this photo. The morning I took this image, the clouds kept obscuring the sun creating a soft, golden light … but every few minutes, the sun would shine through the broken clouds and change the entire picture.⠀ ⠀ This photo reminds me of a story written by Mark, one of the first people to follow Jesus. Mark writes about a time Jesus went to a town and tried to stay hidden, but “he could not keep his presence secret.” In the same way the sun could not stay hidden by the clouds the morning I took this image, Jesus could not stay hidden in the story. His presence was obvious everywhere he went. Jesus was always shining a light on God’s grace and mercy, and changing peoples’ lives.⠀ ⠀ When we follow Jesus, his presence should be obvious in the way we live too—our actions, our words and our behavior. And just like the clouds in this photo, the Son should shine through the broken parts of our life—because, as @ChristineCaine says; “It is in your broken places that you are most often used by God”.⠀ ⠀ So , will you let Jesus shine through your actions today, or will you try to keep his presence hidden?⠀ •⠀ And he entered a house and did not want anyone to know, yet he could not be hidden. — Mark 7:24⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sky_sultans #geelong #bibleverseoftheday #biblejournaling #scriptureoftheday #bibleversedaily #bib#biblescriptureoftheday #childofgod #trustgod #christianposts #dai#dailyword #fol#followjesus #biblestudymoments #verseoftheday #sharethegoodnews #biblescripture #bibleart #wordbeforeworld #sprinkleofjesus #faithblogger #seekhimfirst #followjesus #godspromise #dailyword #biblicaltruth #godlovesus #cloudporn #biblequote #jesusislord #faithquotes
