Day 7 of 47 for Lent Plan


Day 7 of 47 for Lent Plan – “Jesus Rejected at Nazareth”
Reading: Luke 4:16-30 KJV

Further Study

  • Luke 4:16 said that it was Jesus’ custom to go to the synagogue on the Sabbath. Why do you think He chose this day of the week?
    – Because the words “as was His custom” were referring to the fact that He was on Nazareth, the city He grew up in, and it was the custom of the Nazarenes to go to the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stand and read scriptures.
  • What scroll did Jesus read from?
    – The book of the prophet Esaias (which is Isaiah)
  • After Jesus finished speaking, how did the people in the synagogue feel? What did they do and what was the outcome?
    – They were upset with Jesus so much that they wanted to throw Him down their high hill head first, but Jesus slipped away.


  • Worship: Write down one attribute of God and worship Him for who He is.
    Respectful. Thank You, God, for teaching me how to be respectful of Your word and Your ways by being an example for me.
  • Prayer: Pray for yourself – your needs, concerns, desires, dreams.
  • Remembrance: Think of a time you’ve felt rejected. How did you handle it? What could you have done differently?
    – Foster Care…. the day I got tired of being lied to about going home and fought to be taken home, but everyone worked together to force me out of the car, and Mom & Dad went on home, but left us there. I screamed and fought to keep them from making me get out of the car. Once they had me out, I broke free and chased the car down the hill. When the young boy who was sent to get me pinned me down to the ground, I kicked and screamed and fought as hard as I could to get free, all the while screaming, ” I HATE YOU! YOU’RE NOT MY DAD!” Then I convinced the boy I would agree to calm down only to deceive him and run back down the hill. Eventually they were gone and I just went to my room crying, and cried myself to sleep.
    I could have been bettered behaved. There was sense in crying like I did. I should not have been deceptive, nor fighting, and it was cruel to tell my Dad I hate him, and even more cruel to tell him he was not my Dad because while I didn’t mean it the way Mom told us, nor did I understand anything about all that, Dad could have taken it that way, or simply been crushed.
    I need to be more careful with my actions, my words, my spirit, and my integrity regardless of the situation. My pain doesn’t give me the right to hurt others. Thank You for being with me, God. For being with my Dad! For being with all of us.
  • Self-Examination: Do you feel accepted or rejected by others in your life? Share your thoughts.
    – A little of both most days, but God’s love is always greater, ESPECIALLY when sent through so many souls who bless me… IN ADVANCE! ❤ 🙂 ❤

A Kind Act

  • Thank someone for serving in a government or public service role.

My 3 Pics:1979.1Pic 1: Foster Care School Pic, 9 yrs old

Father, this picture makes me think fondly on my dad.  Foster Care was the first time we (kids) were able to wear clean clothes, nice clothes, and on a regular basis. At home we wore our clothes 3 or 4 days in a row. We wore holes in our jeans before it was considered cool, and kids paid over $100 to buy them with holes in them. At least we had the fun of wearing them out and knowing the story behind the holes. 🙂 So you can imagine my dad’s surprise when in my early 20s I bought a pair of jeans from Goodwill for $1.00. They were cut from the top of the leg to the hem with a razor, on both legs, front and back. I liked the way they looked, and hey even if I were to cut them it’s still just a pair of shorts. My dad said they looked like I lost a fight with a cat and were a waste of money. “You mean like I won the fight. I mean I do have the pants and am still walking.” My dad was not amused. 🙂

1980.5Pic 2: New school pic in cheerleading uniform, 10 yrs old
(was back home, and cheering for local community organization)

Lord, I absolutely loved cheerleading!!! It was perfect for a high energy kid like I was. We were the WASPs (West Asheville Sports Program). When we came home from foster care, we were put on a baseball team. Our color was blue. When football season rolled around I asked my dad to let me sign up and on a purple team. He told me they would only let me cheer for the team. I first said no, but when we took my brothers to play, we went over to watch. I was so excited that I grabbed those pom poms and shook them like a true boss (related to the first cheer we were given). 😉 Thanks for the memories!

“We’re Big.. B.I.G.
And we’re BAD… B.A.D.
And we’re Boss… B.O.S.S B.O.S.S. BOSS”

2016.1Pic 3: Meeting my cousin on the Parkway in May 2016

Lord,this was an exciting day as I got to meet up with my cousin Kimberly as she was walking back on the MST (Mountain to Sea Trail). She ended up being the first woman to YOYO it. That means she walked from Clingmans Dome on the Tennessee/North Carolina Border all the way to Jockey’s Ridge on the coast, and then kept walking to go all the way back to where she started on the Tennessee/North Carolina border at Clingmans Dome. That was 1200 miles each way! A total of 2400 miles, plus the hike into Cherokee in the end to meet her Dad. You allowed so many here in the WordPress Community to help me to send encouraging messages to her when I would update on the blog. I Pray for her and her hiking adventures, Lord. Keep her safe.
