Verses that inspire us
I'd like to invite all of our readers to take just a moment to leave a comment on this post in particular. Many times we study our Bible and find gems from God that truly bless and inspire us; we may find "just the right" verse to help us through a difficult situation.
Recently I read this passage in Nehemiah:
From that day on, half of my men did the work, while the other half
were equipped with spears, shields, bows and armor. The officers
posted themselves behind all the people of Judah who were building
the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and
held a weapon in the other, and each of the builders wore his sword at
his side as he worked. But the man who sounded the trumpet stayed with
me. (Nehemiah 4:16-18)
I was struck by the fact that these people thought it no problem to work, with a tool in one hand and a weapon in the other. And when adversity strikes us, we complain about having too much to do, or too much stress, or why hasn't God taken this out of our lives? I think I'd better remember this the next time I'm tempted to complain.....
Won't you share with us, if you have found a verse or passage to be helpful in the past week or two? You never know who might really need that verse or insight that you share . . .
