In those days there was no king in Israel

I'm a little behind. Life has been complicated lately. Luckily insomnia assists in catching up.

I finished Judges tonight. I must say reading the Old Testament gives me hope. The Lord managed you use Gideon, whose faith was shall we say less than unshaken, to save His people. Perhaps I, in my less than perfect faith, can also be of use to the Lord. (I should learn from Gideon's story not to turn away at the last, snared by idols.)

I also am amazed at how long the Lord stood by Samson, who was again not the epitome of righteousness your Sunday School teacher would hold up as an example. Perhaps He will stand by me as well if I had more confidence in Him.
