Throwback Thursday – Twelve Part Series on Dynamics

Ordinarily, dear ones, I would be telling you about today’s episode on the podcast. Unfortunately, I have yet again hit a snag in the download portion of our recording. I’m currently working with tech folks to see if they can resolve the issue. Please pray for me, friends, as I trudge through the ever mystifying realm of…technology. *gulp* Instead, today I’ll be posting a throwback.

Way back in November of 2018 I finished a twelve part series on the three types of dynamics; thermodynamics, aerodynamics, and hydrodynamics. It was fun to study these in light of Gods sovereignty over creation, and to reach Kayliegh as we went along. You can see the original post here. Below is just the ending post, but it’s equipped with links to all the parts in the series. I hope it’s as fun for you to read as it was for me to write!


Hello dear ones! This is it, the final post on our series through dynamics. If you missed any of the previous posts I’ll link to them all at the end. I mentioned at the beginning of thermodynamics that many in both the secular side and the creationist side were applying the second law incorrectly. As an explanation for that I’ve got this phenomenal episode of Creation Magazine Live. If you love Answers News you’ll appreciate this show as well.

Obviously when it comes to the application of thermodynamics there’s no limit. It’s an essential foundation for understanding how God designed this world to work. It also impacts the first two fields of study we discussed, hydrodynamics and aerodynamics. The men who first discovered these principles, now laws of science, did not create them but merely put names and equations to them. Beloved, God created all things, though sin cursed and groaning, our world runs in an orderly fashion. I hope this series has helped in seeing the intelligently designed universe, while giving glory to the one who created it. As always, dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

I Sing the Almighty Power of God – Issac Watts

New year, dear ones, but back to digging through old hymns I’ve never heard before. Aided today by Becca’s beautiful graphics, we bring you another Isaac Watts hymn. There’s an important distinction I hope we can all remember today, between praising God through worship, and singing catchy songs. The man centered drivel we find on modern “Christian” radio stations is the latter, what we are required to bring before the Lord is the first. What I love about the old hymns is their focus on glorifying the only one who ought to receive glory, God. I hope this will bless you, and as always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

We sing the mighty power of God 
that made the mountains rise, 
that spread the flowing seas abroad 
and built the lofty skies. 
We sing the wisdom that ordained 
the sun to rule the day; 
the moon shines full at his command, 
and all the stars obey. 

We sing the goodness of the Lord 
that filled the earth with food; 
he formed the creatures with his word 
and then pronounced them good. 
Lord, how your wonders are displayed, 
where’er we turn our eyes, 
if we survey the ground we tread 
or gaze upon the skies. 

There’s not a plant or flower below 
but makes your glories known, 
and clouds arise and tempests blow 
by order from your throne; 
while all that borrows life from you 
is ever in your care, 
and everywhere that we can be, 
you, God, are present there. 

Driving in the Snow

Hello dear ones, and Happy New Year. I hope this post finds you all doing well! We made it yesterday into the new apartment. If you haven’t followed for very long, my family travels for my husbands work. Every few months we pack up and head to a new town where his company provides us with furnished housing. From time to time this move falls on major holidays, which happily leads far less traffic. Over the next few days I’m going to break from my usual schedule of posting to discuss some of the concerning, or encouraging, thoughts I had during this trip which included five hotel stays and a grand total of 2,088 miles. Ordinarily I prefer staying away from anecdotal posts, as I find Biblically based posts to be substantially more edifying. From time to time I divert from this format, I hope you’ll all bare with me and perhaps even be blessed.

Today I just want to talk about weather. Our trips are always defined by weather. We once made the drive from Wyoming to Houston where it either snowed or rained on us the entire drive. This time we had snow, rain, and fog. I’ve never witnessed a blizzard, however during our drive home through South Dakota I found myself in conditions that were very similar. It was snowing fairly hard, but the real issue was the wind whipping the snow back up. I couldn’t see two feet in front of me, at some points I couldn’t even see the end of our truck. We were racing the clock, attempting to return before the new apartment closed. At that moment I was thankful for two things, Gods sovereignty and 4wheel drive.

I wonder how I would have felt about the storm if we had driven it before I understood sovereignty. Terror, most likely. Don’t get me wrong, it was tense, but not frightening. I don’t have to know all the reasons why storms come, so long as I know and trust the one in control of them. It took a couple hours but eventually the roads cleared and our new apartment even gave us the passcode to enter the building and left the place open for us. Today we begin the unpacking and organizing process. There were a few other events during our trip that I want to cover over the next several days. Until then, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Prayer Requests

Hello all! I have a few things that I could surely use my brothers and sisters prayers on. First, someone who confessed they were not saved but had been attempting to assuage their conscience through religious duties. They felt they were too sinful to be saved, while admitting their desperate need. I’ve never come across such a person, with the awareness of their sins and brokenness to confess them. Please join me in praying for God to grant this person repentance and faith.

I also have a close family member who is in the Word of Faith movement, but has gotten some very serious medical news. Tests are being done, I’ll be sure to update you all on this. They are tragically convinced that this is due to their lack of faith, please pray that God would give this person discernment. Friends, we are promised trials and tribulations on this earth. The rain falls on the good and the bad alone. No amount of seed sowing will change this, and it is not as a result of speaking negatively or having doubts.

Thank you for joining me in prayer for these issues, dear ones. If you have anything you’d like to mention for prayer in the comments please do, and know that when any of you mention family members or friends that need prayer I have and will continue to pray with you. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy fellowship. As always, brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
