    YES, Margaret! How refreshing to hear another sister who believes the same as I do. I have numerous Christian gay friends. It is simply unfathomable to me that Jesus would reject these men and women, who wholeheartedly believe Jesus died for them, at the gates to heaven because the way they loved others was wrong. That is so deeply the antithesis of Jesus’ message, which can be summed up as, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved” “not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:4-5 and 9).

    Someone taught me an important lesson on how to read the Bible. There are two ways to read it, as an attorney trying to discredit or as a judge, realizing it is written by God and has absolute authority. Homosexuality is mentioned as sin in the Bible atleast 13 times. Perhaps God’s plan in placing you in this person’s life is to teach them about God’s grace and mercy. The good news is, we are saved by our faith and not by our works! We can be forgiven for our sins if we have faith and repent. We choose to turn away from sin because it honors God. Of course we fail everyday, there was only one sinless man. I pray that God would give you wisdom and courage to shine a light in this person’s life. I can’t imagine a better way to love someone than by saving their soul and giving them the peace that surpasses understanding. God bless you and keep you. From one wretched, undeserving soul to another, please don’t give up on God’s word

    Thank you!!! Jesus taught us to love everyone, and not once did he actually mention homosexuality, but he spent a great deal of time calling out the Pharisees. I think we need to spend more time examining our own souls than the shelves at Target. My daughter’s BFF is gay, and he came over to my house the other day wearing a t-shirt that said, “Virginity rocks!” on it. I think she needs more friends like him, and he knows I adore him. Why would that change just because he discovered he was gay? If this attraction is indeed a sin (and I’m not sure I believe that anyone BECAUSE of my studies of scripture), he is certainly not the only sinner Jesus died for. My mirror tells me that every day. Meditate on it, sisters, please.

  6. Lauren Walker says:

    Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Noah has incredible faith – to build an ark with no rain. Trusting that Gods plan was bigger than anything he could dream of. I pray for this kind of faith

  7. kylie richardson says:

    i didn’t expect God to kind of break down but thankfully Noah was there with God and was able to help him. my question is though, why did Noah help him instead of worrying about him and like everyone else?

  8. Lynn K says:


  9. Megan Kelly says:

    I’m wondering if this was the beginning of animal sacrifices, like if Noah killed an animal to eat it (because it seems we were vegetarians before this) then he had to give some of it to the Lord.

    But that doesn’t explain why Abel had portions of animals to give to the Lord? Lol

    I love God’s Word so much because there is always something new to discover and learn. This is at least my 7th time in Noah’s story and it’s still just a wonder how it all went down.

  10. Melissa Mcronney says:

    Thank You Jesus

  11. Cayla Weller says:

    Not trying to start drama. I feel like these comments are counter to what Jesus would be preaching. The second greatest commandment is to love others. Homophobic comments from Christians actually turn many away from God. The only one who could cast the first stone never did.

  13. Terri Honeycutt says:

    Here I sit in a country that is not my own. I was feeling disheartened by the push for LBGTQ stuff as this is pride month here. There are so many flags, advertisements and children’s books pushing the theme that you can be anything you want BUT God laid it on our hearts to go to church here. There are many beautiful ones but they are all just monuments. However, we found one that believes Jesus is the only way to God and visited there. Oh what a beautiful thing to find believers amongst so much evil and just lost thinking. I gave me hope! Go and tell all who He is and what He has done. You cannot be anything you want because you are already wonderfully made by the one true God who loves you and made you perfectly. One thing that stood out to me the fear of man from the animals. I’d never noticed that before.

  14. Danya says:

    Obedience out of reverence and relationship is what God is after. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. He wasn’t perfect he was committed to living a life sold out to God.
    Lord may you find me faithful to the end. May I not mind those who jeer my steadfast love for you rather help me to press on till your return for me… however that may happen

  15. Molly R says:

    Good Morning!
    Instead of getting into redesigning a new drain field for the septic we agreed to drop the price, and that was enough for the buyers!
    Yesterday my husband and I went to the house for one last load. That made me the last person in our family, stretching back 80+ years, of ever setting foot in that house, seeing the lake from the deck. It was a harder day than I thought it would be, but reminded me that in each person’s life their is a place in a family, a generation, a legacy that can be used to grieve God’s heart, or accomplish His redemptive plan. I am thankful for a family that, despite many mistakes and sinfulness, pursued God and His plan. And also thankful for a home full of memories that helped shape me, but a reminder that it is God who goes with us and He will use any place/home for His glory.
    Have a great Monday! And thank you for being my Sisters in Christ, Shes!

  16. Aimee D-R says:

    God’s Mercy through one man. Amazing

  17. Lois East says:

    We live by faith not by sight

  19. Nikki DeMers says:

    Not a coincidence that I’m reading this as I watch neighbors walk by with their kids to attend a pride parade in our town. A town that was established as a Methodist summer camp. The Lord is so merciful but I’m finding it so hard to live in these days of wickedness without getting angry. I struggle to pray for them but I know that I need to and be an example like Noah. Walk with God, not perfect but obedient!

  20. TheBestIsYetToCome says:

    I love the faith Noah had. I wonder how many times while people were mocking him and making fun of him did he think, did I really hear from God? He didn’t have a journal that he could write in, he didn’t have the Scriptures of other to encourage him, etc. but he knew in his heart of hearts that he had heard from God. There’s a great song by Colton Dixon called Build a Boat. I love playing it loud in my car and jamming out. I believe I have received word from the Lord, but it is taking a long time, and continuing to dig into God’s word and trust him is stretching and building my faith. Asking for prayers for baby H, to be safe and to be delivered out of his current situation. I love being in community with you all, thank you all for the encouragement and wise words!

  21. Brielle Hebert says:

    So true! My daughter has a rainbow bow and every time she wears it I just wait for someone to make a comment so that I can correct them and tell them what rainbows Actually Symbolize, God’s mercy!

  22. Adrianne Richardson says:

    I think what was interesting to me was God making it very clear that you are not to murder because man was made in his image. That who ever murders his people man or animal it would require a penalty. A life for a life. That was a serious covenant.

  23. Claire B says:

    Heidi, PTL. PRAYING for your goals

  24. Claire B says:


  25. Rachel says:

    What stood out to me in these passages is God demonstrating that He sees and knows all, He cares about the details, and that He is a promise-keeper. He kept His promise for the flood and that Noah’s family and the gathered creatures would be safe. And then in chapter 10, after the big/scary show of power and judgement, He tells Noah and his sons that He will keep His promise not to do it again, and that He doesn’t want to be feared in the wrong way. And He gave us he gift of rainbows because I believe He loves beauty too. So grateful for a God who keeps His good promises.

  26. Mercy says:

    What is different in the story of Noah that I did not expect?
    1- There is personal covenant that God makes with individuals and their family concerning the things He asks or ordains them to do, besides the corporate covenant He makes with the nations. ( But with thee will I establish my covenant, and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, thy sons, thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee. Genesis 6:18)

    2- Multiplication/Increase is God’s wish for us and the earth. I used to buy into a devil’s doctrine of being poor (poverty gospel : when you’re poor, you are humble and godly). And after a while, the Lord showed me that’s a false doctrine, He wants increase. We need to replenish the earth, and resources is surely needed. God blesses Noah’s family and the animals in the ark to increase abundantly.

    @Marena Watson: agreeing with you, some evil agenda is attacking school now. Target even issues LGBT clothing lines for young kids. So gross. Praying all weapons aimed at our kids be utterly destroyed in Jesus’ Name.
    @Patricia Lucas: I also believe that the flood was the water baptism for the earth, and cleansing of corrupted DNA of such cross mating between fallen angels forcing themselves onto human daughters (wicked in God’s sight), preserving the DNA from the righteous Noah’s bloodline for the coming Christ.

    Lifting our sisters in prayers (TARA B, RHONDA, HEIDI, SARAH D, CEE GEE, MARI and others).

    Thank you ladies for your prayers. Last week for several days on a row, I woke up straight from bed with a pounding headache that lasted 8 hours plus, just like an invisible person hammered my head. I am declaring healing scriptures over myself. Extra enforcement from your prayers help so much. Thank you thank you for your praying with me!

    Be blessed dear sisters.

  27. kristen hauptmeier says:

    That was beautifully said. I tre want to represent the Lord and walk with him daily.


  28. Hope Little says:

    I’m disappointed that the reading left out the verses about the rainbow given as a covenant of God.

  29. Ashley Harris says:

    Wow. This reading really has some pieces falling together. I was so struck by the pain in God’s heart over his own creation. It would not have been easy to start over. To wipe these precious souls from the earth because they would not turn to you. I think it’s very interesting that Gods commandments are so similar to those of Adam and Eve’s with the addition of changing their diet to allow animal flesh, changing the relationship between humans and animals, and having consequences for murder. It makes me wonder if murder was the worst thing happening among his first people. I read the enduring word commentary on all of this and it was so interesting. God does NOT like outright murder. And appoints the government to extend his hand over that. But murder and killing are not one in the same. I always see the grey areas. The rainbow is one of the most beautiful scientific “phenomena” that we experience. Snowflakes, butterflies, spiderwebs, morning dew, flowers, iridescent bugs, on and on we have a world full of beauty and wonder. This rainbow though is a reminder of his promise to never destroy all of humanity by flood water and lets us remember when we see it that God keeps his promises. Chiiiilllllllsss.

  30. Ashley Harris says:

    I was vegan for a while and remember seeing the earlier quote in genesis used to defend veganism, but wow! I definitely feel so much better about switching back. I was not healthy after 3 years. I see that Gid changed the relationship between humans and animals by putting fear in them to allow them to protect themselves from us. So hunting would be the new natural. Makes me wonder about all this domesticated food we eat. Especially the super farms. I wish I could eat more locally and grass fed than I do.

  31. Ashley Harris says:

    I felt the same way. I was so crushed reading how disappointed he was in those souls and destroyed them. And for there to be only one righteous family on the planet worth saving. And such an important mission to bear. It’s a lot to think about!

  32. Sharon, Jersey Girl says:

    Noah was instructed to build a boat — a very, very big boat! What faith he had! I wonder if he asked God any questions like: Why will I need a boat? How will I get the animals on the boat? Are you sure that there are no other righteous than me and my family? But, God instructed and Noah did it – simple faith and obedience!

    It saddens me that God was so grieved over man’s sin and that His heart was filled with pain. There are times I think now – how must God feel with all the sin going on in our world? The world is upside down, man is doing what is right in his own eyes. So very, very sad that God’s beautiful creation has come to this – all that was good has gone awry. BUT GOD! He sent His son to redeem & restore the lost, and one day ALL will be made right! Creation will return to it’s original splendor and sin will be done away with – Hallelujah!!

    Also, it is good for us to remember – God gave the rainbow as a sign of His covenant with them, they were to remember His promise every time they saw a rainbow – we need to “reclaim” the rainbow and be ready to share what the rainbow means to us as believers.

    @Tara B. – Praying that God will minister to your heart and your faith will be strengthened.
    @Sarah – Praying God gives you wisdom to choose right, and that if He wants you to get the higher salary, it will happen.
    @Marvi – praying for you!
    @Rhonda – praying for your small group meeting tomorrow you (and God) have got this! May your group be a witness to all the other customers that are around you in Panera.
    @Heidi – prayers for your trip – have a wonderful time! I was in Paris last month – loved it, eat lots of chocolate croissants – they are the BEST!!

    A beautiful weekend to you all!

  33. Michelle Patire says:

    I realize my comment yesterday was mislead because I don’t fully understand why God would allow incest to procreate. Though, I see it is necessary to populate the earth. It’s interesting that in Genesis 6, the sons’ wives are mentioned, but then later, it is just an emphasis on Noah’s sons.

    @Heidi! You are back! God is so good!! I also am glad you shared your story for @Theresa as she and her husband figure out his passport dilemma. He can do it!! May He continue to lead you @Heidi on your European adventure!

    @Rhonda J- When you are weak, He is strong. It’s OK to be a little nervous if it leads you to depend on the Lord more! May He bless your gathering :) He delights in the gathering, so I know He will be with you all. Good for you in your obedience in doing uncomfortable things :)

    @Mercy – hope your migraines have subsided a bit. God be near to you:)

    @Sarah D- it is good to keep in mind your bigger goal- to be a teacher. This will help you see that dream come to fruition, if it is God’s will!!

    I am sorry if I missed some prayer requests. I am running a bit later as Fridays are my Sabbath! Tomorrow I am doing a small coffee shop gig with my mom playing my original music (it is not paid besides tips, but that’s not why I am doing it lol.) My mom is doing some covers. We are hoping to bless people with the Lord’s presence, as we like to use music to subtly minister to others. Pray that it blesses the atmosphere!! Thank you. Love you ladies!!

  34. Mari V says:

    I’ve never been good with words,so hopefully I make sense. I’m taken by the fact that the world was completely destroy, including human mankind, with the exception of Noah and his family, And were told to be fruitful and multiply AND HERE WE ARE! Happy Friday sweet SRT sisters! My favorite day of the week. I have my counseling appointment today and I really need it. I’m feeling depressed lately, with regrets of not pursuing a better education for myself and sometimes though I know who I am in Christ, I feel less than here at work.. I’m not saying this, so people feel sorry for me. I’m saying this to pray for me so that I remember I work for the Lord and not them.

  35. Foster Mama says:

    @ TARA B – I am praying for you. For your faith, joy, peace, discernment,…I pray that you will feel held in His hands and able to speak to Him honestly about the thoughts in your mind and where you are struggling in this season. I pray that great things will come during this season and you will emerged refreshed and even stronger, more convicted than ever before!

  36. Mitzi White says:

    Evil will never overcome the Light. Time’s haven’t changed. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. To God be all the Glory!

  37. Marena Watson says:

    Yes! I have a 4 year old and it scares me the way the rainbow has been twisted and can’t just be a wonderful picture of Hod’s promise. She loves rainbows but the world will twist what she thinks it means. In the end I know God will win but I pray our children do not get lost in the world before then. I want to be a strong woman of God for my daughter.

  38. Traci Gendron says:

    The fact that God regretted that he had made man on earth is huge. I wonder how He is feeling today. It makes you want to try harder to be more “Christ like”.

  39. Marena Watson says:

    The theme of being fruitful and multiply in the beginning and after the flood just brings such a fresh beginning. It was a way to restore humanity. We all mess up and thank God Jesus came and restored humanity for our sakes. Just knowing I am made in his image is such a heavy blessing and makes me want to live and do better. I want to be a true representation of Jesus and walk with God daily.

  40. Apples says:

    Something that stood out to me which is kind of random was 9:3 “Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you.” Ive never considered being vegan but I have a few friends who are and I thought it was an interesting thing to mention our diet as humans at the start of a new beginning!!

  41. Kaity Meade says:

    You should visit the Ark Encounter in KY! If answers all these questions!

  42. sunni corley says:

    I find it restorative that God told them to be fruitful and multiply even after the evil that had spread before the flood. He didn’t limit them, he didn’t say y’all just live out your life, his command again was to be fruitful and multiply.

  43. Terri Baldwin says:

    Genesis chapter 9 is about new beginnings and new order after the flood. God establishes an everlasting covenant with Noah. The sign of this covenant can still be seen today. God makes some new commandments that are different from the pre-flood era. There is an event that causes Noah to feel shame and Ham to sin that results in a blessing and a curse. No promise of God can fail. We see a repetition of human failure and godly punishment, but through it all there is hope and salvation.

  44. Sarah D. says:

    Good morning ladies!! Praying for you @Heidi while you’re in Europe!!
    Thank you for your prayers. I haven’t officially accepted the pre-k teacher position, but I feel that is the best way to go, even though it would be less pay. I was offered another position at my current job, but I don’t feel it would help me in the goal to become a teacher. The pre-k position is essentially offering everything I’m looking for. Plus I am actually excited to work with the kids, especially at a Christian school. I am waiting to hear if the principal would consider raising my starting pay slightly, since there is a difference. Praying that I would trust the Lord and he would provide, as I know he has in the past.

  45. Rhonda J. says:

    Good Morning!

    @Heidi- That’s fantastic that God worked His many miracles and you all made it!! Have a safe and fun time! I hope to see many pics on IG!

    @Sarah D- What did you decide on your job?!

    @Taylor- Missing you, hoping all is okay!

    @Mercy- prayers for the Migraine, hope it is gone! I dealt with them many years, but they have to be worse when you have young kiddo’s to attend to!

    Speaking of kiddos…My one and only child is 23 today!! I miss him like crazy since we have moved away to our dream home in SWF. This is the longest I have not seen him in person, it’s been since before Christmas! I feel very blessed to have him and a wonderful relationship, and I pray that he doesn’t slowly let his relationship with the Lord go by the wayside and decline. But he and I got baptized together in 2015, and it will always be the happiest day of my life! I know the Lord has got him. I raised him up to love the Lord, so God will honor that I believe!

    Have a good day! Prayers are still appreciated for my nervousness, and fear of speaking/leading for my small group tomorrow morning! I have to remember it is for God, and the Holy Spirit WILL guide me. We will be gathered around the tables at Panera Bread, so I got to remember it’s new friends and we want to talk and discuss my favorite thing- Our relationship with Jesus and how to make it better!!

  46. Rachel from Texas says:

    KRISTINE LOUGHMAN – ah, the question of righteousness & is it fair? Yes, I often think that. But then I remember verses like “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬. God is perfectly HOLY & righteous- we fall so short. I have to flip my perspective. Not looking at myself but to Him. Everything He give us is a MERCY & GRACE!!

    I am also going through a free Bible Project study on Genesis 2-5 & it is helping so much reshape how I read & study these early chapters of the Bible! Everyone should check it out on their app!

  47. Patricia Lucas says:

    Genesis 6:4. Was the mating of the fallen angels with humans causing corruption of DNA? Was there so much DNA corruption that God could not let this survive? Hence, the flood.

  48. Maria Baer says:

    I love when I learn something new from Scripture. How many I’ve read Noah’s story and never caught up on this verse: “The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth and upon every bird of the heavens, upon everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered. – Genesis 9:2. While I’ve read the before and after (the covenant to never destroy humanity with a flood and the rainbow), I don’t remember reading this verse. God giving Noah and his offspring dominion over the creatures of the earth. I don’t know why this stuck with me.

  49. Jeanie Mclellan says:


  50. Tara B says:

    I am struggling here. I know the story. I know God granted mercy to Noah and his family. And Noah obeyed. But there are so many questions I have here. If you could pray for my faith and heart here as circumstances have caused me to struggle with joy and faith in my life. Not everyday. But this season is difficult. Thank you She’s.

  51. Kristine Loughman says:

    It’s interesting that the Bible can be very specific about some details (here are the exact dimensions of the Ark) and quite vague about other things (where did Cain’s wife come from?) But as someone mentioned on an earlier day, this is an origin story for Jesus followers. The narrator isn’t concerned with the genealogy of every people group on the earth, just the ones that lead to Jesus. Still, does anyone find it a little unfair that out of ALL the people and clans and regions already mentioned in Genesis, only ONE family is found righteous enough to get on the Ark? A mere eight people? As a child, it used to scare me because I was convinced I would not have made the cut and would have been left off the Ark…

  52. Theresa says:

    I find myself reflecting on what made Noah stand apart from his contemporaries. We read the he walked in fellowship with God and found favor with him. I’m struck by the simplicity of that! It wasn’t that Noah had achieved some level of righteousness or done anything great for God’s kingdom. He had the favor of God because he was open to God’s instruction and had a true relationship with him. All the other inhabitants of the earth had that same opportunity, the same invitation, but they didn’t take it.

    HEIDI – I’m so happy to read you made it to Paris! That’s a city close to my heart because I lived there for a few months in college when I did a study abroad. Your story is giving me hope for my husband’s own passport adventures next week.

    RHONDA – praying for the new small group you are starting. Asking God to give you courage as you stand in front of them and speak.

    SARAH D – what did you decide with your various job offers? Praying that you’ve had clear direction from God in the decision

    FOSTER MAMA – praying for the situation around the baby in your care

    KATIE L – praying for your family and that you’ve found the right attorney to represent your case.

  53. Cee Gee says:

    I had to take time to say that what jumped out at me today was Genesis 6:6-7 and the emotion expressed. It reminded me of “Jesus wept.” in John 11:35. We don’t often see that side of God. I don’t want to be a cause for His grief.

  54. Leann Fuelling says:

    This is so wonderful to think about. His plan is so perfect…the healing water washing over everything including us !

  55. Karen Elizabeth says:

    So much in the reading to pray and contemplate about. Is saddens me that many children in today’s culture do not know the true meaning of the rainbow…a sign of God’s mercy. Praying for our nation and world, that the truth of God’s love and mercy will shine bright. That the evil and sin against children will come to an end by God’s great power.

  56. Nancy says:

    I love these verses from Genesis 9: 11-17:
    12 Then God said, “I am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come. 13 I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. 14 When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds, 15 and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life. 16 When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth.” 17 Then God said to Noah, “Yes, this rainbow is the sign of the covenant I am confirming with all the creatures on earth.”
    The rainbow is God’s covenant to us!

  57. Cee Gee says:

    HEIDI – I attempted to reply last night on your other post but something was glitchy. I am so thankful that you are safe and I prayed for favor Monday for the ticket switch! It thrilled my heart to see how that worked out. Prayers for safety and incredible memory making opps. I love what you shared last night about the good seed and the bad seed. Thanks for sharing what you are learning in your classes!

    I have to scoot this morning but I will be praying for you all and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. We are traveling across our state so so would appreciate your prayers for safety. Thanks and God bless!

  58. Searching says:

    Noah’s faith and obedience – it is difficult to wrap my head around his strength of faith and ongoing obedience to God’s instructions. Noah spent roughly 100 years building a huge ship in his obedience, which is typically the longest anyone lives in today’s world. What if we chose to be obedient for our entire life??

    HEIDI! – thankful for your traveling safety and the Lord’s provision along the way. ❤️

    MERCY – praying for the migraines to flee!! ❤️

    MOLLY – praying for wisdom with the drain field issue

    TINA and quite a few more – you are missed!

  59. Kelly (NEO) says:

    “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among his contemporaries” not saying much since this is how his society was described earlier: “wickedness was widespread on the earth and that every inclination of the human mind was nothing but evil all the time.”

    But Noah had some the right heart attitude so that he “walked with God.”

    Can it be said the same of me in my cultural contexr? Lord, help me faithfully follow You.

    MERCY – praying for relief from your migraines!

  60. Kelly S says:

    I keep thinking about how God used water to destroy the earth and then as a part of His covenant, brought Jesus to earth who is the life giving, living water, restoring our brokenness.

  61. Heidi says:

    The flood is so interesting because it is the 2nd Creation – Adam had been given full authority over the first creation, now it was Noah… the command to “be fruitful and multiply” was now repeated for Noah’s family to fulfill. God’s plans were the same – multiply, fill the earth, taking His image out more and more, that others would see and recognize Him. Sadly, it was quickly messed up again as THIS time the ones restarting the world already had sin in their lives. Because Noah is carrying the Seed of the Promise, God re-starts life with him and his family. He starts with the same instructions as was given to the first Adam, (be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth). Again His image is to be populated throughout the entire world. In addition to the plants that were given during the time of Eden, God gives Noah a NEW food source – animals. Just as Adam had been made to work the ground, Noah works the ground and takes care of a vineyard. There are some disappointing things to come, however, we see God’s heart here – new chances. Faith in His children to complete His purpose on earth. Empowerment from Him to those who will act in obedience to His calling… His love honestly, truly, insanely NEVER. ENDS.

    It is a beautiful day and we are off to discover new things!! :)
