I am linking up with Adventures Of A Schoolmarm for her Worship Wednesday linky. I have a confession. I don't usually like devotional books. There's nothing wrong with them. They are just not my thing. I get more out of just reading and studying scripture. Last summer, a group of ladies from church had a Beth Moore Bible study. I wanted to join in on a summer Bible study but wasn't really sure about Beth Moore. I had heard a lot of good things about her BUT she does "devotional" studies. Well, I joined in and LOVED it!! I'm currently doing her book called, "Jesus, The One and Only". It is actually very fitting with Easter coming up. Last night, I read Luke 22:54-62 when Peter denied knowing Jesus.
vs. 60 -62- Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times." And he went outside and wept bitterly.
Friends, can you imagine how Peter felt when Jesus's eyes met his. I'm sure his heart literally felt like it was breaking in half!
Hope you're having a good hump day. Be sure to link up here.
