Verses that inspire
Every so often, we pause to share verses that have meant a great deal to us. They may have comforted us, or inspired us, or answered a question from our deepest thoughts.
God's Word is a gift to us, a blessing that we simply can't take for granted. Try each day to spend time reading it. Ask God to guide you and show you what you need for that particular day. The Holy Spirit will help you as you read.
Choose a verse or passage and work to commit it to memory. Write it on a card to take with you through your day. Read it and try to repeat it, without looking at the card. You'll be amazed at how well you can do! And you will be blessed by both your efforts, and the times that the Holy Spirit will bring that verse to your mind, to help you. Or to help you help someone else.
This passage has meant a great deal to me recently, and I'd like to share it:
Psalms 5:11-12 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield.
Please feel free to leave a comment with a verse that has inspired you this past week.
