2 Samuel 24:14

I am going to try to do a better job and putting some of my devotionals up.   I hope they encourage you with your walk with the Lord.

So this devo happened through reading a kids Bible with my kids before bed.   It got me thinking more and more so I had to get my Bible out and do a little more reading.  

2 Samuel 24:14- "I'm in a desperate situation! David said to Gad, "Let us fall into the hands of the Lord, for his mercy is great; but do not let me fall into human hands." 

Wow! David screwed up again and had sinned against the Lord.   God gave him three options for the sin and even though David didn't pick any of the three the Lord delivered the consequence- three days of terrible things- death of 70,000 people.  David must have felt a lot of pain and heart ache knowing his sin cause the death of so many people.  David though realized that God would still have mercy and after all of this heart ache David built a new alter.  

The big thing that stands out in this story is the scripture above- 2 Samuel 24:14-  "Let us fall into the hands of the Lord, for his mercy is great; but do not let me fall into human hands."  How often in our every day life do we fall into the hands of each other instead of our Father God?  I know this story has so much more when you read into it but lets be honest- How often do we respond like David- He knew he screwed up big time yet he trusts God and no other human.   He knows his God is a merciful God!   Do we have that same kind of though process?   Or do we look for the next self help book, or blast another social media post about our feelings, or trust a co-worker or friend instead of bringing it straight to the one who can solve the problem, lighten the burden, and show you the right answer??  
We have not taken this example of David's to heart.  We need to be desperate for God to continue to show us HIS mercy as they are new every day!   

Jesus, help us rely on you and your mercies every day.  Thank you God that we can run to you and not human hands.  I trust you God so help us to run to you when we are desperate and not the world.  Amen

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
