What’s in a name? Ichabod…

During my Bible read this morning, I stumbled upon this passage.  It made me think and pray for a blogger …

"His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was pregnant and near the time of delivery. When she heard the news that the ark of God had been captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she went into labor and gave birth, but was overcome by her labor pains.  As she was dying, the women attending her said, “Don't despair; you have given birth to a son.” But she did not respond or pay any attention.

She named the boy Ichabod, Ichabod means no glory. saying, “The glory has departed from Israel”—because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband.  She said, “The glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured.”

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. Hi Archie;

    I thank you for your prayers and concern, but this planet has been teaching me something the Bible never could.

    My last post, I Know This, explains my way of thinking.

    There is something to be learned from life itself and we ignore the message in our own vanity.

    Peace Bro. 🙂

  2. Hey Eb. The planet is created with beauty, but not sure it understands wisdom. ie the supernatural application of knowledge, but it is good to learn. I’m part Indian you know.
