Ahh, good morning! I just spent an hour watching YouTubes of Francis Chan speaking on simplifying and sanctification.
Feeling the need to move out to the middle of nowhere. With my Bible. And my boys. And Brent. And my favorite coffee cup.
But for today I will move towards balance instead. Balance. My word of the day.
Also the word of the day is winner.
We have a WINNER!!
First, thanks to all who signed up for this blog via email. I am tickled pink about it, really. Coming from the girl who always opts out of the “would you like to receive additional emails” option, I am truly thankful.
So honored and humbled.
Let’s pursue Jesus like crazy people, shall we?
And in the meanwhile, I will send Betsy Gibson a book. Two books actually! Congrats, Betsy! You are the winner (random.org says so)!
Go on and have one more coffee. Why not? It’s Friday!
But before you go, leave a comment telling a Scripture that is absolutely rocking your world right now.
We want to be rocked, too.
The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working}” (James 5:16, AMP).
Think about it. Prayer makes tremendous power available to you.
That rocks my world. Take God up on His promise, today.
And may your cup overflow.
Psalm 139:7-10 NIV
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
Ooh Julie. I love this. I need to be reminded that I can not escape Him. He is always with me. I needed that today.
Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.
Be at rest. Be at rest. Oh, Emily. That is Word for me. Thank you.
I Won!! I Won!! I Won!! Such a Great Big Surprise!! Thank sweet Becky…you are such a blessing to me!
LoVe, LoVe, LoVe your blog!
You did! You did!! Surprise! HOW FUN! oxoxo
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”~John 16:33
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 Such a great reminder to me!
Thanks Leigh Ann. xoxo
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 NLT)
Love this, Dawn. Love YOU Dawn.
Be still and know that I am God. + Psalm 46:10 +
(I’m really terrible at being still.)
I want so much for this to mark my life.
“I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who will do according to what is in my (God’s) heart and mind. I will firmly establish his house, and he will minister before my anointed one always.”
1 Sam 2:35
Firmly establish his house. Wow. I claim that.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, & let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” (Psalm 27:14)
Wait. Be strong. Courage. Wait. Mmm.
Psalm 16:8. “I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” NO. MATTER. WHAT….ALWAYS.
I love the thought that God is right beside me. Right now. And always. Thank you Tam.
But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. Job 23:10
In a time of transition and trust. Waiting. Praying. Hoping.
Oh Maggie. I will pray.
Maggie, I am in transition, too. I really needed to hear this verse today.
