3000 Year Old Tablet With God’s Name And Warnings Discovered

A new discovery from Israel involving an ancient tablet could be one of the most significant archaeological finds in modern history. The tablet was discovered at the site of Mt. Ebel, and its  text is being called centuries older than any known Hebrew inscription from ancient Israel. A lab in Prague scanned the tablet. The text reads, “Cursed, cursed, cursed – cursed by the God YHW. You will die cursed. Cursed you will surely die. Cursed by YHW – cursed, cursed, cursed.” the tablet dates to the late Bronze period, which ran from 3300 B.C. to 1200 B.C. That means it would be roughly 3,000 years old.

Utah Becomes 12th State To Prohibit Biological Males from Playing In Female Sports

Utah became the 12th state to prohibit biological males from playing on female sports teams when its legislature on Friday overrode the governor’s veto of the bill. Governor Cox of Utah, was the second governor this week to veto legislation focused on transgender participation in sports. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb also vetoed a bill banning transgender athletes from choosing their own sports teams, saying he found no evidence of unfairness. Utah’s bill prohibits “a student of the male sex from competing against another school on a team designated for female students.” The legislation defines “sex” as the “biological, physical condition of being male or female, determined by an individual’s genetics and anatomy at birth.” Read more about the bill here.

Holocaust Survivors Reunite In Florida After Almost 80 Years

Jack Waksal and Sam Ron spent more than a year together in the Pionki forced labor camp in Poland during the Holocaust. After the war, neither man knew if the other had survived. Fast forward 79 years when Waksal recognized Ron at a benefit event for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The two started catching up on each other’s stories. Waksal had escaped the camp and survived six months in the forest in winter. Ron was moved to another camp and then American liberators saved him from a Nazi death march. Just teenagers at the time of their imprisonment, the two managed to both immigrate to the United States, specifically to Ohio, where they both lived for 40 years unaware of each other’s existence before eventually moving to South Florida.

March 29th – Romans 8:26

Romans 8:26 

Isn’t it comforting to know that God’s Spirit takes the deepest prayers of our hearts and not only beautifies them, but perfects them? And He promises to answer them in the way that is in our best interest? Just think for a moment how deeply we are loved. How God longs for sweet fellowship with us and to bless us in spite of ourselves. But why? Why has God provided all we need to help us when we can’t even find the words to pray?

The reason is because God wants to show us the riches of the glory of His grace. The Holy Spirit creates those deep groanings and then carries them to the Father. Our Father who not only hears, but performs what the Spirit asks, ultimately bringing God the glory. When we are battle worn and weary. When we don’t know how to pray, or at a complete lost for words, He knows!

The One who searches our hearts and knows our thoughts before one is ever spoken, stands ready to intercede on our behalf. And we can trust that God will bring about the circumstances which magnify Christ in the best way and bless us as well. What an awesome God! Full of grace and mercy, He has planned for even our times of weakness and loves us far more than even we could ever comprehend!

Blessings, Sue
