Before Pharaoh – Joseph Part 5

If I had the opportunity to meet the President of the United States, that would be pretty amazing.  It wouldn’t matter if it was the current one, or a future one.  Simply being able to meet the most powerful person in the world would be a moment of a lifetime.  Sometimes I think about what I would…

Love You More

“Love You More” by Nichole Nordeman You said, “go and sin no more …” Though my eyes could not meet Yours I started running the third time the rooster crowed You threw a party just for me Though I squandered everything I was blinded in the middle of the road Climbed up in a tree…

Two Years – Joseph Part 4

Genesis 41:1 – Then it came to pass, at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh had a dream; and behold, he stood by the river. Do all of our prayers get answered?  I was fortunate enough to go to a Steve Green concert this last Friday night.  One of the ways the concert was great…

Dreams and Disappointments – Joseph Part 3

Joseph suffered for his integrity, for his tempter revenged herself by accusing him of a foul crime, and causing him to be thrust into prison. Had Potiphar believed his wife’s charge against Joseph, the young Hebrew would have lost his life; but the modesty and uprightness that had uniformly characterized his conduct were proof of…

Potiphar’s Wife – Joseph Part 2

But Joseph’s faith and integrity were to be tested by fiery trials. His master’s wife endeavored to entice the young man to transgress the law of God. Heretofore he had remained untainted by the corruption teeming in that heathen land; but this temptation, so sudden, so strong, so seductive—how should it be met? – Patriarchs and…

Exchanging the Good for the Higher Good

We are never called upon to make a real sacrifice for God. Many things He asks us to yield to Him, but in doing this we are but giving up that which hinders us in the heavenward way. Even when called upon to surrender those things which in themselves are good, we may be sure…

In Egypt – Joseph Part 1

His soul thrilled with the high resolve to prove himself true to God—under all circumstances to act as became a subject of the King of heaven. He would serve the Lord with undivided heart; he would meet the trials of his lot with fortitude and perform every duty with fidelity. One day’s experience had been…
