We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

# 184 True Worship Restored

By Arla, Jan 11 2019 02:00AM

A crowd all but runs from the temple, meeting others who are looking for Jesus. Hearing their account, some turn back afraid, but many press on to see the one they've come to as their last hope.

 

Many had stayed in the temple also, hearts thrilling at the power of his majesty, so seldom shown like this.

 

Jesus heals the sick and dying, and takes the children on his lap receiving their grateful kisses. Everyone, especially the children, shouts praises to God which come alive, bouncing off of marble walls and floors.

 

What a different scene the priests and rulers witness as they slowly return! They fear Jesus will take the throne of David, but they find people rejoicing in new health and ability, their praises ringing. For a time they stare, stopped by the wonder, unable to move.

 

The celebration of praise calms into little ones falling asleep in Jesus arms as he teaches the people seated around him.

 

The priests recover themselves, and press forward, shushing the still-exuberant children; the sound of their unrestrained voices, their dancing, running feet, offends them. But their words have no effect at all, so they speak to Jesus.

 

"Do you hear this? Stop them!" they say to him.

 

"Haven't you read?" asks Jesus, "Out of the mouth of babes You have perfected praise," He quotes David. Prophecy is being fulfilled!* They know the prophecy, and he knows they know it.

 

Matthew 21:14-,  Mark 11:18-,  Luke 19:47-   *Psalm 8
