Please pray for me to help since i fall in the same category of bad girls of the bible like Michal. I want to be a woman of a gentle and a quite spirit as the word puts it. Thank you for your sharing. God bless you.
Thank you, Liz, for this Study. Also, your ability to relate those teachings to our lives is so helpful. I used to think all you Teachers were perfect, and then you tell on yourself and I gasp or laugh out loud! My hubby and I and the kids had to move frequently in the early years of our marriage because of his job.

Then, when my parents health declined, the kids and I moved in with them to care for them. That Old Testament stuff was hard! It is always better to be nice, than mean. It is easy to say the end result is bad—and find the angry words that made it so. Would he have married Abigail, if Micah had been there with him? Would some of those Psalms of loneliness been writter, if she had supported him in the cave? I know when my husband has to be away for business—part of my heart leaves with him…and we are not whole until he returns.
Michal had the selfish love that wanted the successful man—but not the one in the cave. Do we then doubt why another enticed David? Her heart left him when he left the comfortable life. My wall with the Lord has always been a personal aka private and mostly in my head one in a home where I knew that God existed but only as I knew that Einstein had existed, a fact.

He impacted a lot but what did that really have to do with me? I cannot ever express how life-changing finding the Lititz Moravian Church was for me in growing my knowledge and faith and personal relationship with God. It is so easy to be in our own space thoughts about our lives when a husband or child says something we agitate against and we are cruel in our words.
He never did anything grievous to me, only good. You still have Bill as well as God. Keep your focus on Jesus and give Bill a hug for all of your fans. Perfect timing on this……. He does not even become part of the equation when we act and speak in sheer haste and frustration. This area is where I struggle most. As you said, no matter the situation, God deserves to be honored.
We I get so wrapped up in how I feel and the injustice I felt I went through that by the time I am done explaining, whining, ranting…whatever the case may be, I owe God an apology for the injustice I just did to Him. If I would include Him from the beginning in everything life would be better, and those closest to me would smile a whole lot more. Out of our love for God should come a genuine desire to see things through His eyes which are fair and just, not ours which are clouded and jaded through selfish desire. Michal did not see it that way because her heart was not true to God.
In order to attempt to have a heart like His our eyes, ears, and mouth have to be committed to the pursuit also. Thank you for sharing your story. As always your insight is much appreciated. I know this is about Michal, but I wish I was more like David. Free with abandon. Maybe Michal was envious of this with David. Being the daughter of the King you have to be proper in every aspect of your life. What I struggle with in regards to my relationship with my husband, is to find the love I had for him.
I am afraid to really say what I feel. Why, because the fear of things being thrown back in my face. It is my fear, not his. How do you get past this fear and open your life up to the person you do love? I am trying to figure this out. My husband and I did separate for 9 months after 10 years of marriage. It has been wonderful, but, the stress of our circumstances has closed me up.
So, I do not want to be like Michal….. I just want it all at once. Plus, I need to be more like David and feel free with God in my worship of Him. Thank you so much for this Bible study blog, Liz.cfcdornelles.com.br/includes/feather/air-transportation-a-management-perspective.php

This sweet book is simple to understand and can lead your children down the path of realizing their grief is normal, no matter how all-consuming it is, and that death is a part of life. Reider, illustrated by Monica Bruenjes This sweet book was written by a man who lost his best friend, his father, when he was just a young boy.
Now, answer honestly: What would you do? Where would you stand? Is that where you are standing now?
If you still find yourself wanting to hold onto this Jesus, can you not make room for the grief and outrage of those who died in similar ways? Our theology teaches there was a purpose in the death of Jesus; it does not teach it was right and just to kill him. It converts it from White responsibility back to White guilt. I was there when she was turned down. I was there when she said she would write the article with or without them.
