Wednesday’s Word: There for Those who Seek

When I grew up, one of my favorite hymns was “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” It was also one of the last hymns I ever heard my 100-year-old grandmother play on the piano–it was one of her favorites, too. And yes, I do feel like Jesus is my best friend, but it’s sometimes good to be reminded (as in this portion of Psalm 9:1-10) of the many dimensions of our God and Savior, even when they aren’t as warm and fuzzy.

For friends new to this blog, “Wednesday’s Word” is a weekly Bible audio clip that rotates between Genesis, Luke and Psalms. Periodically, I post a word from the Bible on what it means to be wise in “Wednesday’s Word to the Wise,” in honor of Sophie Topfeather, the main character of my upcoming children’s series.

On Sundays, I post an article-type post on themes in the novels: faith, friendship, diversity, etc. Thanks for reading!
