    What a beautiful beautiful comforting post. I never thought about how Jacob’s heart had become more tender with age and humbling and how that affected his deep love for Joseph. And I just love all the scripture! So much! Thank you for blessing us deeply with His word and love today!
    Love, deb

      Oh Deb, I am so glad you liked it. I was feeling down and knew I needed to get back to my Bible study, but I look at myself and sort of felt ashamed, but then I remembered this:

      “5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.

      6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

      7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” Isaiah 6:5-7 KJV

      Then I was overwhelmed, because there is so much that commentators say about Joseph. Then I thought, “Wait, this series is supposed to be about the Lord.”, and the father/child perspective came to me as I saw the horrible pain Jacob suffered when he was told a wild animal had devoured his son. All of those years Joseph might have been in Egypt, but Jacob didn’t know that.

      It really ministered to me as I considered it all.

    Theresa, it really ministered to me too as you shared about how grieved God is too, but how He is much more fully aware of the joy that awaits them. That blessed me so much! Today I read 2 Corinthians 1:7 , that kind of goes with this. “And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partaking of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolations.” NKJV
