The scripture story at the center of this week’s worship is very old, and quite unusual: Jacob wrestling at Jabbok, Genesis 32:22-31. Have you ever read and wondered about this story? Who was the stranger? Why did they wrestle? Why did Jacob come out with an injury, and with a new name? -Pastor Holly
A Scripture reflection by David Wadd, BHUMC member and Certified Lay Speaker in the UMC.
All the days of the afflicted are evil: but one that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. -Proverbs 15:15 Thinking about these past several weeks, I find a need to get re-centered with God! I believe a wonderful life is a choice, choosing to have a contented and joyful heart. Attitude can be more important than circumstances. Some can be happy in poverty, while others are miserable in prosperity. “Take no thought for tomorrow,” Jesus said; God will take care of it for you. Turn your needs over to the Lord, with thanksgiving, and God will give you peace that passes human understanding. (Philippians 4) Your life is good, if you are looking in the right direction, and it will get better, by His goodness. There you will find fullness of joy and pleasures for evermore.
