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, Tuesday, November 27, 2018
Psalms 125:1 “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.”
Matthew 26:13 “Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”
14 “Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver.”
Matthew 27:54 “When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed,
“Surely he was the Son of God!”
When I opened to Psalms 125:1, it hit me immediately, “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.” What a great reassurance!
“Surely he was the Son of God!” Exclaimed by the centurion at the moment Jesus gave up his spirit. This is the moment believers long for, for our friends and family, that they would come to this realization that Jesus was who he claimed to be, the Son of God.
I remember praying while flying in an airplane. As I looked out the window, I prayed, “Lord, I don’t know you the way my friend does… but I want to.”
That simple, honest prayer changed my life. I got off the plane a different person. I was on a new path.
I wonder what happened to the centurion after he came to that realization?
When Judas realized what he had done by betraying Jesus, he went out and hung himself.
Two very different realizations.
Lord, I’m thankful that I know You! You changed my life. You set my feet upon a rock!
