Looking Deeper into His Word – Daily Readings

Authors: Madeleine Woods & Peter Grobler

This Discovery Changes Everything We Know!

The Torah (which literally means “instruction”  or  “teaching”)  is contained in the first five books of the Bible which were given by God to Moses.    The Torah is the foundation on which the rest of the Bible is built;   it is the bedrock on which biblical faith is built.    It is made up of :

  • Commandments
  • Judgements
  • Precepts (principles)
  • Law
  • Testimony (examples)
  • Statutes (customs)

You see all this set out in Psalm 19.   These 6 descriptions of what God told Moses to write down in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy are the basis of our faith.  If you read Psalm 119, you will clearly see how every verse of the Psalm sings the praises of these six explanations of what the Torah is.

The early Hebrews divided these five books of Moses into 52 portions (one for each week of the year) to enable God’s people to read through them once a year, and in this way make these teachings so much a part of their lives that they become automatic.    In more modern times, as some Christians came  to understand that the roots of our Christian faith cannot be separated from the Old Testament and that the depth and beauty of these five books are the rock on which our faith rests, they too began to follow these weekly teachings and to wrestle with their meaning and how they apply to us in the light of Jesus and His sacrifice.

So, we read the portions through the week together with our “elder brothers” – Israel.   I trust that you too will be blessed as you grow in His Holy Word.

FIERCE – The Book

This book will give much insight regarding broken people in a real and broken world.

How do you cope when you have kids with learning disabilities – or not freak out when they have O.C.D. and bipolar…

Bi-Polar, OCPD, OCD, ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia  are only some of the currents  tugging at the heart of Madeleine Woods,  threatening to draw her into a sea of despair.

Her journey, though often amusing, and even hilarious,  is also often poignant and sad,  as she navigates through the years toward a God who needs to also become a friend – One who will journey with her to a deeper understanding and compassion.

This is a true story, still in the writing.   It all happened and is happening.   The pain of it is obvious, the faith it engenders is precious.

This book will give much insight regarding broken people in a real and broken world.

Dyslexia

OCD

Bi-Polar

Depression, Suicidal Thoughts

You are not Alone

Leaving School before Finishing

The Book Launch – Saturday 3 November 2018 – took place at The Stag Coffee Shop in Fish Hoek. People came from all over Cape Town – and some from much further afield. The heart of what was shared is YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It is all about openness about where we are at – so that others can get to a “safe place” and feel free to be open about their issues as well. It is about finding HOPE and STRENGTH in God.
