Changes Are Coming

My younger daughter is studying about Daniel in her individual Bible studies.  As I help her grapple with the truths and navigate through the study, I, too, am learning.  This week we read of Daniel's faith, and these words, said by Daniel, echo in my head as I see the seasons changing in our own backyard.

"Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
to whom belong wisdom and might.
He changes times and seasons;
he removes kings and sets up kings;
he gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to those who have understanding;
he reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what is in the darkness,
and the light dwells with him."
Daniel 2:20-22

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet words and wow, really?! That's so neat!

  2. What a lovely post Dorie and Daniel's words are such truth to ponder. Be wise for more wisdom ... be understanding to receive more. And I can attest ... he reveals deep and hidden things to those who have light within.
    May your Easter be blessed,

  6. BLess the Lord! I've never studied through Daniel. Sounds like a great book. -- I have read parts, stories, passages, but never straight through.... Have a wonderful day!


  7. Dorie,

    Thank you for this post.

    "...the light dwells with Him." Oh, Holy God, you are amazing. When I read these words His Spirit within me explodes with joy and I got goosebumps on my arms. Quite a combination.

    I studied the book of Daniel several years ago and fell in love with Him more. I'm sure your daughter will, too.

    Bless your Easter.


    1. Thank you, Laura, for these words of encouragement and testimony. It is certainly a meaty book! Definitely one that has, and continues to leave an impact.
