February Three

Whoa... Slow down how is it the 3rd already?
I need some prayer for clarity. I am not sure if I should take on a bible study. It would be at my church which is further away and at night which I am sooo not good at. Why do they not have 6 AM bible study's :).
Also for my HEART bible study. I am having a hard time picking up the book. And for my girls with their bible studies. It was their first time last week and Rileys teacher was a little overwhelmed.

I am loving my husbands PC this morning but I feel like a lil kid. A normal keyboard is big!!

A plague of blood
My question is again about the Pharaohs magicians. In Exodus 7:22 But again the magicians of Egypt used their magic, and the,too, turned water into blood.So Pharaoh's heart remained hard.... How do they have power to do this? Is God giving it to them because it is not in His perfect timing to have Pharaoh's heart changed?

A plague of frogs
How are the magicians doing this as well??
I could not imagine the stench and just grossness of the frogs. Yuck. I assume they were not little cute frogs like we see in our yards from time to time either. yuck

A plague of gnats
Exodus 8:18 Pharaoh's magicians tried to do the same thing with their secret arts, but this time they failed. And the gnats covered everyone, people and animals alike. Does anyone know about this??? Is it God allowing and not allowing the magicians to do these things? It said earlier that Pharaohs heart will remain hard until a certain time.

A plague of flies
Okay this is discusting. I can not stand flies!!!!!!!! In the summer here we get flies. I do not remember growing up, EVER , seeing flies in my house. I don't remember ever seeing my parents use a fly swater. So this has to be the worst plague ever!!!! The germs and maggots and eecchhh.
In Exodus 8:28 "All right ,go ahead, " Pharaoh replied. " I will let your go into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the Lord your God. But don't go too far away. Now hurry and pray for me." I have discovered this in life. Non believers saying "your in my prayers" or saying thanks when I say "Ive been praying for you" even my husband appreciates me praying for him (and please pray for him I see him getting closer to the Lord). Why does this happen? If someone said this to me when they were not talking about My Lord and Savior I would comment. Not say Thank You. I would not ask a buddist or Satanic or Muslim to pray for me???? What are your thoughts?

A plague against livestock

A plague of Boils

A plague of hail
I wonder if Moses got discouraged or just went along well knowing that Pharaohs heart would not change yet.
I look at biblical times when the miracles God did were like this. And yet people still didn't believe. Huh?
