Welcome to my online blog for our Vineyard Life Journal!
This forum IS NOT for debate or to correct each other, but to share our insights and observations. (Actually, I will be keeping a pretty tight rein on the comments section, and I will have the ability to block trolls, spammers or those who just want to stir the pot.)
Before you comment or read what I have posted, read today’s passages for yourself and complete your own S.O.A.P. exercise… (If you read mine first, it may taint what you think.)

Here is my SOAP for today, Friday, July 27, 2018
Isaiah 50:10 “Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant?”
Isaiah 51:16 “I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand.”
Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation.”
(TOMORROW is ISAIAH 53! “By his stripes, we are healed.”)
Psalms 92:1 “It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, 2 proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, 3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.” [As a worship leader/musician I love this verse!]
2 Peter 1:3 “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.”
17 “He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.”
I love that Peter just jumps right in, “His [Jesus’] divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.”
If that is the case, then what are we worried about?? “His divine power has given us everythingwe need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” He has given us EVERYTHING… we need!
I also love that Peter basically says, “I was there. I heard the voice of God the Father… from heaven… on that day…” I was there…
Thank you Lord that you have given me EVERYTHING I need for a godly life! Help me to live wisely!
