Find The Book
September 1, 2011

One Sunday at the church where I pastor, I invited three children to find several scrolls with Bible verses written on them that I had hidden in our worship center. I told them that once they found them and read the words aloud, I would give them a prize. You should have seen those kids! They ran, moved chairs, and looked under plants and in purses (with permission). Their search for the scrolls was intense, but exciting. Their diligent search and subsequent discovery of the scrolls led to joy in the children, affirmation from our congregation, and a renewed sense of the importance of God’s Word.

In 2 Kings 22–23, we read how King Josiah and the people of Judah rediscovered the joy and importance of God’s Word. During the repairing of the temple, Hilkiah the high priest found the Book of the Law. It must have been lost or hidden during the reign of Manasseh. Then when the scroll was read to King Josiah, he listened and responded to it (vv.10-11). He sought further understanding of it (vv.12-20), and he led the people to renew their commitment to its importance in their lives (23:1-4).

Many today have unprecedented access to God’s Word. Let’s renew our commitment to “find” it every day and by our lives show its prominence.

O Book divine, supreme, sublime
Entire, eternal, holy, true;
Sufficient for all men and time—
We pledge our faith to thee anew. —Anon.

To know Christ, the Living Word,
is to love the Bible, the written Word.

Read: 2 Kings 22:8–23:3

  I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the Lord. —2 Kings 22:8  
Bible in a year:
Psalms 135-136; 1 Corinthians 12

Happy September, y'all! :)

Thank you, Yorkie, for your concern. I hope we BOTH get some refreshing rain soon. I can’t believe how depressing it is to see all the dead trees, shrubs and plants and the dust that just hovers in the very dry air.

SEPTEMBER'S POEM

by Helen Hunt Jackson

The goldenrod is yellow,
The corn is turning brown,
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down;

The gentian’s bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun;

The sedges flaunt their harvest
In every meadow nook,
And asters by the brookside
Make asters in the brook;

From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes’ sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies–

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Good afternoon, ladies! Saw the neurosurgeon this morning - he thinks there's nothing wrong with my back. This afternoon I had an EMG test of the nerves in my leg and that one turned out negative too. I'm feeling about the same and have had no improvement in my ability to walk - still using the walker. So the bottom line at this point is that nobody knows what the cause of my condition is. I still need to get MRI's done - I'll let you know how they turn out.

Hi Conor! Perhaps I missed something, but I didn’t know something was wrong with your back, along with the knee! An
MRI should most likely show what’s going on. I’m so sorry you are having no improvement.
Prayers the Doctor can find the problem’s cause and fix it!
