Have you ever wished you could get God to change his mind? It can be done, even if it’s something major. Moses was able to do it, and he did it twice: once shortly after leaving Egypt and again as they were on the brink of the Promised Land.
The Day of Atonement is upon us, and for many, it isn’t the favorite of God’s High Days. For some crazy reason though, I always look forward to it. It is not because I really love to fast. It is also not because fasting is easy for me. It is just something about the fact that it seems like I am renewed on the Day of Atonement. I really feel the “At-One-Ment.”
