Chapter 5 Verse 15 - Today's Date in the Bible


Chapter 5 Verse 15 - Today's Date in the Bible

Have you ever struggled with direction from God?  Maybe during prayer you just cried out to God and said: "Lord, please show me direction - when I open my Bible please allow my eyes to land on the verse that will show me your answer." I have done this many times and most of the time I received an answer, or at least guidance to His next step for my life.

In this series, we will be doing something similar in randomness to the "open-the-Bible-anywhere" that I spoke about above.  Recently I started thinking that there are areas of God's Word that I will probably never write about.  I might be missing so many parts of Scripture that might be able to touch someone's heart.  That's when I came up with this fun way to read parts of the Bible that we might never study. 

This is how it will work - we will have the month represent the Chapter in the Bible and the day will represent the verse. Today is the 15th of May, so we will focus on verse 15 of the fifth Chapter of each book in the Bible.  Obviously, this post would be extremely long if I included all of the 15th verses of every Chapter 5, so I am highlighting ten verses (sometimes I included a couple extra verses around the 15th for context).  This series will continue on the third Sunday of every month.



"But He saves the needy from the sword,
From the mouth of the mighty,
And from their hand.  So the poor have hope, And injustice shuts her mouth."
Job 5:15-16

"Then Daniel was brought in before the king. The king spoke, and said to Daniel, “Are you that Daniel who is one of the captives from Judah, whom my father the king brought from Judah?  I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you.  Now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing and make known to me its interpretation, but they could not give the interpretation of the thing.  And I have heard of you, that you can give interpretations and explain enigmas. Now if you can read the writing and make known to me its interpretation, you shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around your neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.”
Then Daniel answered, and said before the king, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another; yet I will read the writing to the king, and make known to him the interpretation."
Daniel 5:13-17
(I encourage you to read the entire chapter 5 of Daniel)

 "See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people."
1 Thessalonians 5:15

"Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
1 John 5:14 & 15

"So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise.  Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days."
Ephesians 5:15&16

" And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven."
James 5:15

"You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.  No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house."
Matthew 5:14-15

"For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  But if you are always biting and devouring one another, watch out! Beware of destroying one another."
Galatians 5:14-15

Asian Multi-Mushroom Noodles RECIPE


Asian Multi-Mushroom Noodles

This past winter we grew mushrooms inside for the first time - it was a great success!!  
(click HERE to read "7 Edible Homegrown Mushrooms")  

This recipe today features some of these delicious mushrooms and it's very easy to make.

2 cups (or more) mixed mushrooms (sliced or shredded - click HERE to learn how to "Shred An Oyster Mushroom") - I used Lion's Mane & Oyster Mushrooms (Pink Oyster Mushrooms & Golden/Yellow Oyster Mushrooms)(but you may use Button, Crimini, Morrel, Shiitake or whatever other edible mushroom you desire)
2 tablespoons oil 
5 oz of Thin Cantonese Egg Noodles (or half of a 10.5oz package)
1 medium onion (peeled & chopped)
1 cup tender Bok Choy leaves (rinsed) ( or 1 large fully grown bunch of Bok Choy.  If using fully grown bunch- trim base off and chop) 
1 to 2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons cooking wine (Sherry is fine)
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon white pepper, ground
1 pinch or more cayenne pepper (I used more)

Begin by preparing ingredients as listed above (chop or shred mushrooms, chop onion, rinse bok choy (see picture below).  In a small bowl mix/stir the soy sauce, sesame oil, cooking wine, brown sugar and peppers just until brown sugar dissolves - set aside until later)


Cook the noodles following directions on the back of the package.  
In a medium frying pan, saute the mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of oil until the desired "doneness" is achieved (flipping and stirring as needed) (see picture below - the edges of the mushrooms are starting to get a little crunchy - yum!).  Set aside the sauteed mushrooms.


Start sauteeing the onion in a large frying pan and while that is cooking - check your noodles (they should be done by now).  Drain the noodles and set aside.  Saute the onion for about 5 minutes.  Now, add in the previously sauteed mushrooms and the cooked/drained noodles.  Mix around lightly and add the sauce mixture - continue tossing or mixing (burner should be at medium or medium high heat) (see picture below).  



Turn off the heat and quickly add the tender bok choy leaves (see picture above) - cover and allow the leaves to steam for about 5 minutes.
NOTE - If you are using fully grown bok choy, then you will need to saute the bok choy when you started sauteeing the onion (instead of the last 5 minutes).


Toss/stir & Serve (see picture above)

A Motherly Compilation


A Motherly Compilation

Today is "Mother's Day" and for many it is a very emotional day.  Maybe you are not able to be with your mom today, or maybe you have lost your mom.  Others might desire becoming a mother but for whatever reason are not able to have children.
No matter what situation you might find yourself in, I thought it might be a good idea to honor everyone who is "motherly" (as well as honoring our moms and grandmas).
Below are important Bible verses from previous Mother's Day posts as well as three series that apply to today's holiday:  "The Science of Life", "Who Takes Care of the Caregiver?" and "Living a Childless Life".
