More Wisdom, Second Hand

My friend Mike sent an email to several friends talking about the rough go he’s had the last few weeks. Compared to him, even my toughest days lately have been mere inconveniences. In his email, he shared what he’s learning through it all, and he shared the following scriptures:

“The LORD said, ‘Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.’ Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.”
1 Kings 19:11-12


“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Wow. Thanks, Mike! Sometimes it takes hearing someone else’s wisdom, the way the Lord works in their lives, to see what He is capable of doing–and continues to do–in my life. It’s also so encouraging to hear what God shows others and how He shows it to them.

On a good-news front, I feel like I truly accomplished something today. I got the Eastridge podcasts up and running (for the first time in months, I have to say) all by myself. Not that it was particularly difficult work, but it was a big deal to me to have accomplished it. Yay.

  1. Well, I for one, am impressed by the podcast accomplishment!

    Probably because I can’t even figure out how to get them over to my i-tunes library? :0

    What am I missing here?

    I did hit the ‘subscribe’ at the bottom and it transferred over the latest sermons (one Sunday and one Wednesday) to my library, but how do I get the older ones transferred?

    If you could tell me what step(s) I’m missing, that’d be awesome.



  2. Jessica, I can’t figure it out! I’ll do some “research” and get back to you…

  3. Well, that makes me feel better anyway! 🙂
    I tried iTunes help center, and needless to say… not much help.
    I guess worst case scenario, I actually purchase the sermon cd’s and support our bookstore! (Donna would probably rather that anyway.)
