What's This?

Sunday Came on Saturday!?!

Sunday. Came on Saturday? How can that be?

Jesus spoke in riddles and parables. And truth be told, He had to translate His words into every day English – mmmm, I mean Aramaic – so His disciples could understand what He said. Now Susan’s talking in riddles too! What in the world is this about?!

Sunday came on Saturday. Hmmmm…

The sun stood still for Joshua to fight a battle, yet that was centuries ago. Is God still performing that kind of miracle? If you have not read this incredible story, I encourage you to do so now. It’s only 15 verses. Here’s the link for you to Joshua 10:1-15.

And the power in the punch line in this story – So the sun stood still…

12 On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel:

“Sun, stand still over Gibeon,
and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.”
13 So the sun stood still,
and the moon stopped,
till the nation avenged itself on its enemies,

as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.14 There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!

15 Then Joshua returned with all Israel to the camp at Gilgal.
Joshua 10:12-15 (NIV)

And there is God, listening and responding to the prayer of a human being, Joshua. Making miracles, multiplied miracles.

The sun STOOD STILL in the middle of the sky.
For a full day.
The moon stopped.
Surely the Lord was fighting!

And God listens to you too and hears your prayers too. He also fights for you. So may I ask – do you need a battle to be fought by the Lord for you? There will never be a day like it before or since for you, a day the Lord listened to you. So ask Him…

So what does that have to do with how Sunday came on Saturday at my house last week? Miracles. Multiplied miracles.

Months ago, my brother-in-law’s niece asked if I would take her kitty when they moved. Of course, I replied!

Then I got two male kittens a couple of months ago. Frankly, it had been a while and I had forgotten about Jennifer’s request.

And Jennifer messaged me last week to ask if I would take her kitty as they were moving on Monday. Of course, I replied!

So on Saturday, August 5th, I packed the pet carrier and proceeded to Jennifer’s barn to get her kitty. What a beauty! An orange and white tabby female. Named Sunday…

God packs a punch is just a few words, doesn’t He? The power in the punch line is this story – So the sun stood still and Sunday come on Saturday. Come see!

That’s how Sunday came on Saturday at my house last week.

Oh by the way, July came in August that same day…

Pardon me and riddle me this, as the Joker said on many a Batman episodes.

Can you guess her name?

Sunday July. Of course!

And I think she may be carrying a “month of Sundays” as it looks like she is ready to deliver a litter any minute now…

Oh my. I learned something. I thought one more kitty would be fine.

God packs a punch is just a few words, doesn’t He? The power in the punch line is this story – So the sun stood still and Sunday come on Saturday. Come see!

    1. Thank you Nicole! Sunday is sooooo big with kittens now that she’s waddling. Her back feet point out instead of straight ahead! Oh my, so funny to watch.

    1. Thank you Barbie! We are still waiting on kittens. Sunday is so big with kittens now that she’s waddling. Her back feet point out instead of straight ahead! Oh my, so funny to watch. Hugs, Susan

  2. Susan, I smiled a lot as I read this wonderful post this morning. Guess what? I know all about this Sunday miracles-Mine are March Miracles.
    Three years ago, when I was told I am carrying triplets- I realized the Hand of God was about to give me overflowing miracles. When I brought my kids home after birth ,my husband even found a cat outside our home with three little kittens as well.

    We serve a God who is ready to fight our battles no matter how scary and impossible they are until we witness a miracle.

    I love knowing you through your blogs
    Diana

    1. Oh Diana! THREE? Babies AND kittens?! Now that is a perfect example of multiplied miracles. Yes God fights for us, each and every day. I’m so glad you took a moment to share your story, so I know you better too. Hugs, Susan

  3. I so miss having kitties! I have a couple of grandchildren who are terribly allergic, but I never miss a chance to pet someone else’s. Thanks for such a fun post and for hosting. Blessings, Susan!

    1. Oh Donna! I hear you. It has been several years since I had a cat – a tiny little 4.5 pound Snowshoe Siamese beauty named Lucy who passed away at 19 years! (Shhh. Don’t tell anyone – I’m allergic too, so these are outside porch kitties!) Hugs, Susan

  4. You are too funny Susan!! Life does tend to be full of surprises. I love the reminder that the Lord is fighting for us and He can even make time stand still!

  5. Every time I hear the story of Joshua I have a song my boys loved when they were little stuck in my head. [Joshua and the Battle of Jericho]
    I find it interesting that God used stories and word pictures to relay concepts (often deep wisdom) to us.

    ???

    Didn’t God listen and answer Elijah when he asked to bring fire down from heaven? (referencing vs. 14 as I’m sure God answered humans (and still does) today)

    1. SaraBeth, yes he did and still does as you say! All we have to do is see one prayer answered to know He is there with us and responding today! Hugs, Susan

  6. Thanks for solving the riddle for us. 🙂 I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. Being allergic to cats, I wouldn’t have been able to accommodate those requests made of us, but I’m glad you are able to enjoy the cats!

    1. Lisa, so true, not all of us can have kittens. I’m so glad I can have them outside on the porch and at the lake to keep mice and snakes AWAY! Hugs, Susan

  7. Wow! I don’t think I have ever read that passage of scripture before. I am so moved. I am praying about a situation right now. I have tried to lay it completely in God’s hand but have been tempted to go back and pick it up so many times this week. Thank you for sharing these verses, your heart and your kitty! I love orange and white kitties!!!

    1. Oh Summer this section of Scripture is incredible with revelation of what God does for us! Lay your whatever down and lift your empty hands to our Lord Jesus he’s got you.

      And oh sweet orange and white kitties! My last one was a 15 pound lug nut we called Punkin – we had him for 15 years!
      Hugs, Susan

    1. Becky,

      Thanks! I have no idea how many littles ones are on the way – I just know she is VERY broad in the beam right now and waddling…!
      Hugs,
      Susan
