Welcome to my blog: I intend to share heartfelt writing about anything that comes to mind.
Take Up Your Cross
We all have a Bible verse that we like more than any other. Besides John 3:16 which is everybody's favorite, what is your favorite Bible verse and why?
Psalm 37:23-24 (KJV)
23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
This is my favorite scripture. It is filled with hope. God is my strength, and will not let me fall. Not only does he lead me down the right path, he is delighted to do it. He takes pleasure in helping me.
I also have a second favorite verse.
Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Have you heard the song, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow”? This song is one of my favorite songs too. The chorus says, “Many things about tomorrow, I don’t seem to understand, but I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand.”
What a comfort it is to know, God holds my hand all the time, and is able to keep me from falling. Like a good Father, He leads me, guides me, comforts me, disciplines me, wipes the tears from my eyes, and walks with me. He gives me a hope for the future, and forgiveness for my past. I have confidence because I am his. I have hope and a peace that passes all understanding. This is the God I put my faith, hope, and trust in, and he keeps me in ALL my ways.
