My Ramblings...

Hi All. This post is going to be somewhat random. Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I will start working on all of those. Also, I have grown tired of my old look on my blog. I will be working on it over the next couple days. If you have any ideas for my blog please comment and tell me.

Bible Cake

Recently I found this recipe for a Bible Cake. I thought I would share it with you all. Look up the references. Enjoy

3/4 cup Genesis 18:8
1 1/2 cup Jeremiah 6:20
5 Isaiah 10:14 (separated)
3 cups sifted Leviticus 24:5
3 teaspoons 2 Kings 2:20
3 teaspoons Amos 4:5
1 teaspoon Exodus 3:23
1/4 teaspoon each 2 Chronicles 9:9
1/2 cup Judges 4:19
3/4 chopped Genesis 43:11
3/4 cup finely cut Jeremiah 24:5
3/4 cup 2 Samuel 16:1
Whole Genesis 43:11

Cream Genesis 18 with Jeremiah 6. Beat in yolks of Isaiah 10, one at a time. Sift together Leviticus 24; 2 Kings 2; Amos 4; Exodus 30; and 2 Chronicles 9.
Blend into creamed mixture alternately with Judges 4. Beat whites of Isaiah 10 till stiff; fold in. Fold in chopped Genesis 43; Jeremiah 24; and 2 Samuel 16. Turn into 10-inch tube pan that has been greased and dusted with Leviticus 24.
Bake at 325 degrees F until it is golden brown or Gabriel blows his trumpet, whichever happens first. Bake for an hour and ten minutes. Remove from oven. After fifteen minutes, remove it from the pan. Cool completely. Drizzle over it some Burnt Jeremiah Syrup.

Bible Bee Verses

I thought I would share some of my Bible Bee verses with you. Here you go:

Psalm 141:3 - Set a guard o LORD over my mouth, keep watch over the door of my lips.

Proverbs 22:17 - Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise and apply your heart to my knowledge.

John 4:25-26  - The woman said to him, I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ), When he comes he  will tell us all things. Jesus said to her, I who speak to you am he.

Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our LORD.


I wanted to let you all know, my readers, that I have found a very helpful site for Memory work. It is called Memverse. You sign up and then put in your verses you want to memorize. Your interval between reviewing verses gets bigger and bigger as you review it more.

Bible Bee

I have decided that its time for an update on the Bible Bee. It is six weeks and three days until the local competition! I am almost finished with my memory work. Lord willing, I should be finished by July 24th. The Bible Bee is such an encouragement to me mainly because I am memorizing God's Word and I am digging deeper into His Word.

A Prayer Request

Please pray for me that I would not set my mind on winning the Bible Bee but that I would stay focused on doing my best and giving God the glory. What can I be praying for you about (don't put on anything you don't want on the Internet, or if you want to tell me but not have it on the Internet put NNTP [No Need To Publish])?

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

Thoughts from a Sermon // Lazy Praying

Recently a friend shared a sermon with me; Listening to it this morning, I was extremely challenged. I've written out some thoughts from the sermon, but I encourage you to listen to it.

We are in a war. A very real war. A very dirty and bloody and hard war. A war not against flesh, not against other humans, a war against spiritual darkness, a war against evil, a war against the spiritual forces of Satan. Yet are we living that way? Are we girded in the armor of God? Are we fighting in this war? Are we preparing for this war? Are we pressing on even when it's hard? Or are we comfortable where we are? Are we content where we are? We've become so wrapped up in the things of the world. The world is trying to put us to sleep. It's trying to make us put down our guard.

God has given us everything that we need to fight in this war - the armor of God, the Spirit, His power. Jesus has already overcome Satan and the world and death. We are on the side that we know is going to wi…

Meditations // Jeremiah 1:6-8

"Then I said, 'Ah Lord God! Behold I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.' But the Lord said to me, 'Do not say "I am only a youth" for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you,' declares the Lord." --Jeremiah 1:6-8 In this passage God commands Jeremiah to speak to the people on His behalf and what does Jeremiah do? "I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth." This wasn't an easy task, nor would it be a fun task, or a task where the people would love him, it was a difficult, uncomfortable hard task. Jeremiah thought himself too young. Jeremiah didn't think that God could use him because of his age. But what does God say? That HE would be with Jeremiah, give him the words to say, and deliver him. God doesn't just command him to do something, he also gives us promises to go with that command.
