Thy Faith Hath Made Thee Whole

A brief look at some of the miracles Christ performed in Matthew 8-9 and Mark 2-5

Quotes used in this episode

“Then comes a great acknowledgement of faith: ‘I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live’ These are not only the words of faith of a father torn with grief but are also a reminder to us that whatever Jesus lays his hands upon lives.  If Jesus lays his hands upon a marriage, it lives. If he is allowed to lay his hands on the family, it lives.”

-Howard W. Hunter

“By doing these physical acts, however, the Master’s apparent purpose was to strengthen the faith of the blind or deaf person, persons who were denied the ability to gain increased assurance and resultant faith by seeing his countenance or hearing his words.”

-Bruce R. McConkie

Matthew 6-7

He Taught Them as One Having Authority

This week on Stumbling as I Follow we’ll continue our study of The Sermon on the Mount.  We’ll talk about prayer, the choices we make, sailing the Straits of Magellan and we might even sing a song about a Wise and a Foolish man.

Quotes used in this episode

“The object of prayer is not to change the will of God, but to secure for ourselves and for others blessings that God is already willing to grant, but that are made conditional on our asking for them.”

-Bible Dictionary

“The reason He asks us to pray is that the process of learning to communicate effectively with Him will shape and change our lives.”

-David E. Sorensen

The Journey Begins

Hi, there! I’m glad you found me.  Stumbling as I Follow is a podcast that I have created to be a companion to the Come Follow Me curriculum.  I share with you thoughts and insights I have as I study the assigned chapters.

My intention is not to replace your personal study but give you a way that you can reflect and remember what you have read and studied in order to invite the spirit to teach you through out the day.
