Question #5

I’m buckling up and setting my sights on the goal. Because of that, I won’t have the time to devote writing posts for the blog during the month of June. But rather than just going silent, I’ve decided to try something different. I love hearing from you and thoroughly enjoy the interaction that happens in the comment section.

This month I’m going to ask YOU questions. I will weigh in with my own answers, but I’m mainly interested in just getting to know you. Some of the questions will be fun while others will hopefully take us deeper. After all… June is for questions.


QUESTION #5. Which person in the Bible do you most identify or connect with?


I love the story of Gideon found in Judges 6 and 7. Even though Gideon is terrified and has no military background, God still sees his potential. The angel of the Lord even calls him a mighty warrior. Gideon’s story reminds me that everything depends upon the Lord’s strength and not my own.

What about you?

  • I am the older brother in the story of the Prodigal Son, ALL THE WAY.  I have a strong sense of justice, and work my booty off doing things the “right” way.  When God shows grace and favor to those who don’t “deserve” it, I’ve had some ugly moments – because it’s not FAIR.  

    God is continually working on my stubborn heart to reveal a) he is always with me, and everything he has is mine (Luke 15:31), and b) I actually don’t “deserve” it either. :)

    • Oh, me too. Me too. ME TOO. “My way is the best way because I deserve it.”

      And I should have also said that I really AM Gideon because I want so many fleece miracles before actually believing or going. I want proof that it’s going to work out the way that I WANT it to work out.
