    Thank you Madelon for your vlogs. I enjoy them so much and the insights you have are always uplifting. It’s wonderful to hear the correlations in the Bible that relate to our present circumstances. I have been reading the Bible through with the Bible Reading System by Professor G. Horner. I am amazed how much this has tied the Bible and C.S. together, for me.

    I, also, like the fact that someone, you in this case, is acting to reach out and encourage us all to pray about this current wave of thinking, to stop this in it’s tracks. Nothing is impossible to God and we should expect a perfect outcome.

    God Bless you

    Thank you so much Bonnie. It is a privilege to share with you and others in the BibleRoads community and am so grateful they are helpful. That Bible of ours is so timeless and we never see it as clearly than at times such as these. Blessings to you –Madelon

    Thanks so much for the comforting message. I love Ps. 91 and. 139 and also have been thinking about I John 4 where the author speaks of “no fear in love”. Once years ago when I read the line that followed that “he that feareth is not made perfect in love” it made me feel more afraid because I WAS afraid. Then the thought clearly came that it is FEAR that is afraid, not ME. I am made perfect in love and cannot be afraid. And when I pray for my loved ones I know that they too are all “made perfect in love”.
