A few bible verses have come my way lately through various venues that get my heart & mind to thinking.
And, since I've been thinking about them so much, I thought I'd share them. I mean, if they hit me, maybe they will get to you, too. You know, for encouragement or just to get you thinkin'.
Either way, you'll have to let me know. I love to hear how God's word impacts friends. And if you're reading this, then you're considered a "friend"!
"The widow who is really in need & left all alone puts her hope in God & continues night & day to pray & to ask God for help." ~1 Timothy 5:5
"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." ~Romans 12:10-11
"Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, & do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Romans 13:14
"...These are the words of him who is holy & true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, & what he shuts no one can open." Revelation 3:7
"Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you." ~Psalm 116:7
And while this is not scripture, it is a very sweet quote I borrowed & wrote in my journal awhile back from someone's blog:
"Lord, I crawled across the bareness to you with my empty cup, uncertain in asking any small drop of refreshment. If only I'd known you better, I'd have come running with a bucket."
~ Nancy Spiegelberg
Random? Maybe. But there have been ever-so-many times that seemingly out of nowhere, words come my way that cause me to stop in my tracks & chat with God about what they mean in my circumstances. Or, sometimes, the words just seem to embrace my whole being. Such is the case with these passages & quote. However, as I sat here being inspired & encouraged, it suddenly hit me...Why in the world would I not share in the event that someone else might
get hit between the eyes be inspired & encouraged, too. So, yes it may be random. Or, maybe not. :o)
