I’ve been in a bible reading slump. I’m going to try to be consistent again. First day back in – well, I hate to admit it, but – years.
I resisted the urge to skim through and read the whole thing. Here’s to starting new habits and rekindling a love for the Word!
Hooray Deb!! I cannot tell you how much this has helped me come alive in my Spirit! I’m 70+% through and i feel hungry to read and pray every day now. I feel more equipped to live my life and serve God and others because of this helpful tool keeping me in the Word ! I pray nothing will prevent you from picking it up every day!
This is great! Some days it will feel like a chore, but after a while, as you ask the Lord to meet with you each day, you’ll be amazed at how He speaks through His Word every day, no matter your situation! Give Him time, don’t rush through the readings, but sit & ponder the ones that strike you or that you don’t understand. The comments can be helpful, but also let the Lord speak to you. :). We’re here with you! Welcome!
“He picks up the poor from out of the dirt,
rescues the wretched who’ve been thrown out with the trash,
Seats them among the honored guests,
a place of honor among the brightest and best.”
I love seeing how magnificent AND personal our God is. I love where it says, “He seats them among the honored guests.”
After a miscarriage earlier this year and a negative pregnancy test earlier this evening, Psalm 113:9 was a HUGE comfort to me!
“He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord.”
I couldn’t help but get emotional as I read that last verse. So thankful!
Our Lord knows your heart ❤️ praying for you sister
Prayers for Gods will for your marriage to bear fruit in unfathomable ways.
How timely this has been for me right at this moment! I am so I. Awe of the beauty and strength of our God ❤️
Really needed these psalms today. Last was a time of darkness for me and psalm 112:4 really helped me. 4 Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and righteous. also, I found 112:7-8 to be encouraging as well. This summer came with a lot of devastating things for me and my husband and I so often fear the future, fear what may come. My prayer is that I would turn to the One who saves me, who delivers me from my fears. May we all find peace in our Lord and Saviour today.
That’s so awesome! God is so faithful to show us that time and time again over the years he has never failed even in our fears.
Praying for you, Marlaena. God is in control!
Perfect love casts out all fear and here in Psalms, they will have no fear in bad news shows that when we trust in God through faith and love, everything is in His hands. Together with the verse all things works together for the good to those who love Him. Then we are at a place of complete surrender we trust God in every way as what ever happens it’s all part of His perfect purpose for our life.
