I am trying to learn how to make different types of Bible games and quizzes. Here is a Bible word scramble quiz that I made in Spanish.
Happy Sabbath. I hope that you are enjoying this wonderful day of rest and communion with God. I know that after an especially busy week my family and are thanking the Lord for granting us a day to lay down our burdens and hold spend time with our precious Savior.
Happy Sabbath. Isn’t it a blessing to know that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, to know why we are here, where we came from, and where we are going! What a sense of hope and purpose should thrill our hearts to know that God Himself formed us out of the dust, that He bent low in the garden of Eden to personally give us the breath of life.How blessed are we to realize that our God is mighty enough to hang the moon and the stars in the the heavens, yet He loves us so much that He knows the number of hairs upon our head.
That is one of the great blessings of the Sabbath day. It reminds us that our Creator did not wind up a toy and then turn and walk away. He did not make earth and leave it to sink or swim on our own. But from the very beginning, right after saying that what He had created was very good, He created a day of rest for His creation where they could draw near to Him. Before sin entered the picture, while all was perfect and pure, He has set aside a time for us to walk and talk with Him as we would our best friend.
If we had need of the Sabbath in the perfect garden, how much more need do we, laden down with the mighty burdens of sin, racked by infirmity, feeble and worn, need the faith building communion of this day.
Now, as we draw close to the river Jordan, as we near the temporary spot of rest where so many of the Israel of old were beguiled by food, song, and dance and joined themselves to Baalpeor, we must learn to cling to the side of our Savior. Instead of trusting in our power, reassuring ourselves like Peter before his conversion that even though all should be offended we will stand firm, we should be making our anchor sure. Now, while there is still time to accept the offer of mercy. Now, while there is still time to call our friends, our neighbors, and even our enemies to the great wedding feast, we must give the Lord every corner of our heart. We must give Him permission to do His work of soul cleansing and transformation. So in that longed for hour of solemn rejoicing, when the trumpet shall sound and the righteous revive their eternal reward, we will be found standing on the right hand of God and we will be allowed to walk the streets of gold and join the holy angels in songs of praise to our merciful Lord and Savior.
Happy Sabbath everyone. I am so glad that God has granted us a day each week to spend drawing closer to Him. This world is so hectic, and as we draw closer to the final battle it is amazing how many trials and tribulations the devil is sending our ways in hopes of keeping us too busy to look up and behold how little daylight is left.
As we near the finish line, the roar of the lion is definitely growing more fierce as he seeks with all his might to take our eyes off the prize of salvation and refocus them on the fleeting things of this world. As the signs point out that the miles between us and Heaven are fast disappearing, like the great deceiver that he is, he is busily seeking to point our eyes towards his empty hand, promising us that hidden within his palms are jewels of far greater value than eternal life and a heart washed clean from the stain of sin.
Knowing that he has but a few hours left to deceive and tempt, he is doubling his efforts and stirring up as much trouble and tribulation as he can so that our hearts might be overrun with care and the fight to earn enough to fill our bellies and secure a roof over our heads that we might be tempted to doubt the promises of God. That we might become too busy to spend time upon our knees and in the word of God filling our lamps so that we might safely make our way past his many minefields and man devouring tar pits.
As I listen to the news and hear of the many warnings of disease, famine, and war, I cannot help but think of the warnings of Christ that before he comes there will be wars and rumors of war, pestilence, and other fearful wonders that are now coming to pass. I cannot help but think of the story of the wise and foolish virgins, and with trembling heart I plead with the Lord that He will keep the oil in my lamp full and overflowing, lest in the last moment of earth’s history my light should go out. And on the very shore of victory, I should be found wanting and lose that which is worth more than all of earth’s riches.
It is my prayer that this humble Bible game will help you in your effort to hide the word of God in your heart, so that your lamp will burn ever brighter, and that you will be ready to meet the Lord when He comes.
I hope that this Sabbath has proven to be a blessing. That you have enjoyed the blessing of spending time with your brothers and sisters in Christ, and have taken time to draw nearer to Jesus. That you have spent some time in your prayer closet communing with your Savior so that the things of this world may grow strangely dim and the promise of things yet unseen become more precious to you than all the gold and silver in this world.
I hope that you are enjoying the wondrous blessing of the Sabbath. In these increasingly perilous times it is so helpful to have a day to pull apart and spend time with our source of strength. To take time from the struggle to earn our daily bread and remember that one day soon the struggles and burdens of this life will be laid down. And remind ourselves that the things of this life are temporary and that we need to set our hearts upon the things which really matter. To take the focus off ourselves and place them firmly upon Jesus, our true source of hope and salvation.
Finally a little taste of fall has arrived with lows dipping into the mid to upper 60’s. It has been so wonderful to be able to turn off the air conditioner and enjoy a couple of hours of fresh air and sit outside for a few minutes a day without feeling like the sun is trying to broil my skin.
Between the summer heat and almost daily migraines everything has been slow going. So many days I have opened my laptop with the intention of writing a short blog, creating a digital pack for Etsy, or making a book for KDP and within a few minutes found myself opening up a simple game or even closing my laptop so I could curl up and pray that my migraine would go away.
Sadly, as much as I would like to be one of those miracle one day wonders who open a their shop and within weeks are earning hundreds and then thousands of dollars, that is not going to be my experience. As much as I would like to take off like a rocket, I have to settle for the slow and steady march of a tortoise or even the slow crawl of a snail.
The good news is that slow but steady has resulted in my first 10 sales on Etsy! The bad news is that 10 sales over 3-4 months is certainly a million miles short of making a living. But at least it is a start. Like the saying of old that the journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step, so my journey to financial independence has to start with making my first dollar. And while I wish that I could reach my goal of self-sufficiency sooner, it is amazing how good it feels each time I see that occasional lonesome sale.
My journey is still to new to speak about the pros and cons of creating an Etsy shop, the best SEO strategies, and such. But I can tell you that there is something quite wonderful about knowing that you have made a product that someone felt was worth spending some of their hard earned money on. And the satisfaction of those few, hard won pennies is hard to beat.

Also, here is a link to one of the handful of projects that I managed to get done over the past couple of weeks. It is a fun Who Am I Bible game with 20 quiz questions.
