The Bible - it's a big book when you're looking through it for something written specifically to and for you.

The Bible Draft is a fun and creative way to connect your experiences, thoughts, and feelings directly to the words of Scripture. Played similar to the format of a fantasy football league with the commeraderie among players in your league, the creativity of team names, and the personalization of Scripture passages just for you, the Bible Draft is a worthwhile challenge for those who have never opened the Bible before as well as for anyone else at any stage in the journey.

Obadiah 1:18
18 The house of Jacob will be a fire, the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble. They will set it ablaze and devour it; none will survive of the house of Esau, for the Lord has spoken.

Obadiah, Obadiah, what about Obadiah? I’ve never read Obadiah before, but it is a fun name to say.  My first read through of Obadiah, I thought why is this still about Jacob and Esau?   That happened a long, long, long, long time ago, like at the beginning of the Bible!

It made me think of relationships.  Relationships and arguments that seem to last forever.   I see myself in this verse when I can get so frustrated and mad at times at my husband, or sons, or sisters or friends or anyone.   I think I have a right to say, ‘my house will be fine but your house, it’s going be stubble and set ablaze and none will survive”.  When I cool off, I think, where did that come from or what was I thinking? It makes me smile to think that God is very familiar with any longstanding frustrations and arguments that I have had in my life.   And He loves me anyway.  

Hope for Everyone
