Blog Bible study: Isaiah 7:1 – 8:22

In the face of danger, King Ahaz did not trust God and didn’t want to risk hearing what He’d say or command for him to do. He didn’t truly believe in God’s power to save or His prophet/prophecy.

“Unless your faith is firm, I cannot make you stand firm.” Isaiah 7:9b

God offers His help to me, and it’s up to me to believe Him and take it.

This week’s sections also talked about fear of God. This is a theme I’ve been thinking about lately from this Bible study. I need to fear God more—I take Him for granted and think of Him like a chum, forgetting that He is holy, powerful, and mighty.

If I properly fear and respect Him, that means I believe in His incredible power as real and holy.

If I fear Him and believe in His power, then I can more completely trust Him no matter what circumstance I’m in, or my friends are in. I can pray with more faith, more trust, more certainty in Him hearing me.

“Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life.
He is the one you should fear.
He is the one who should make you tremble.
He will keep you safe.”
Isaiah 8:12-13a

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
