Magnify and Exalt

For those of you who have studied with me in the past, you know that I want to make God bigger through our study of the Word. As He becomes larger, all of life makes more sense. If we are to truly "set our minds on the things above, not on the things that are on the earth" (Colossians 3:2), then our focus needs to be on God, His character, His plan and His sovereignty. So the purpose of this blog is to magnify or enlarge the Lord through our discussion, and exalt or praise Him for what we learn. Does that make sense?

I'm sure I'll post thoughts and questions, but I want you to ask and comment as well! We've got the space, so why not use it? I'm not looking for anything overly heavy, just something to encourage our continued application of the Word, as well as share our lives with each other. I hope you will join me, and find this a safe haven and an enjoyable blog to visit.

One final quick note - I have posted a few blogs that I enjoy reading on the right of the page here. Overcomer is my friend Kathy from Washington that visited our study last winter. She loves the Word, is an avid studier, enjoys prophecy and writes a solid, tangible blog. The Orange Mailman is another blog that I enjoy - he is also a prophecy buff but like Kathy, delves into many matters of scripture. I think you will find both of them thought provoking and encouraging, so hit the link and enjoy!

Blessings to you and stay in the Word!
