Psalm 10:17

“You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
      You encourage them, and You listen to their cry.” ~Psalm 10:17

Paraphrase: God hears you, even if no one else does.

Today’s verse is four letters that changed the world.

1 Corinthians 16:14 is the “Go-to” verse shared by two separate grad students in two different courses in two different states.

It is stupendous that God’s word resonates with course colleagues in different states!

A graduate in my class shared Hebrews 11: 1 as her “Go-to” Bible verse.

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” ~ Hebrews 11:1

Our world in the last week has shifted. Things can feel so upside-down. Using this photo from a previous presentation, I created a framing effect to project the power of Hebrews 11:1 to turn our circumstances, outlook, and focus back to His Grace.

 

Flip your screen, phone, or yourself to see the message!

Look for His Grace flips this week…

“Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless… defend the rights of the poor and needy.” ~Proverbs 31:8-9, Good News Bible Translation

 

Remembrance:

The Good News Translation was the translation preferred by my maternal grandmother. Grandma walked with a cane because of an imbalanced hip- a condition that is easily treated today, but not in 1898 when she was born.She had a personality of quiet strength; she studied botany at Berkeley, taught school,  and even protested the building of the Coronado Bay bridge near San Diego.

As she aged, mobility became more and more painful. She wanted to serve and help and she decided to link her ministry to what she did best, which was writing.

Grandma began to write to service men and women deployed first in World War 2, then in the Korean conflict, and Vietnam. As the 1970’s turned to the 1980’s she continued to write to servicemen and servicewomen serving in peace time. Grandma’s letters were part Los Angeles Times’ headlines, sermon homily, “Dr. Mom” type advice, and, of course, encouragement. 

She found a way, whether it was at the beginning, middle, or conclusion of her letter, she would add a Bible verse from her grey, paperback Good News for Modern Man Bible translation. She continued her quiet practice until she moved on heavenward.

Our family received letters for months and months after she passed in 1981- letters from servicemen and servicewomen, most who wrote after her letters abruptly stopped. The month of February is always bittersweet because it is her birthday month and learning from you all during EDUC 606, brought back many sweet childhood memories of her. 

We are all called to serve- through letters of life  write to those close and far away and through the daily ways we nurture those in our life.

Thank you for all the ways that you shared, learned, and promoted your educational mission for all learners.
