About

My name is Jennifer Joy and the writer of Blessed Quietness.*  

The aim of this blog is to encourage you as you walk with Christ. The posts are for the sole purpose of pointing you to Him and providing an avenue where you can focus on the Word. Life is not always easy and it helps to have others pray, remind us of Scripture, or quietly listen as we work through our struggles and eagerly embrace our joys.

May we grow in Christ together.  I invite you to join me as we focus on who He is and pursue a relationship with the God of the Universe. There is no greater joy than getting to know our Savior better and inviting others to come along on this journey. 

Blessings,

Jennifer Joy


Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Part 2 ~ Miracles: Impossible?

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  Luke 1:31 Miracles: Impossible? Remembering David Hume's definition of a miracle from the last post: "[a] violation of the laws of nature; and because firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the case against a miracle is--just because it is a miracle--as complete as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined to be." 1 If we take a look at Hume's definition of miracle, at first glance, it would seem as if he is declaring miracles to be an impossibility because they cannot violate the laws of nature. Is this really what Hume is attempting to argue? Hume taught "that what we call the laws of nature are simply an account of what has happened up to the present plus a belief that the future will continue to be like the past."2 According to Hume, we observe what has happened and we believe, or shall we say, take a step of faith to believe that wha…
