I curled up with my Bible Easter Sunday Morning, with the intent to get back on track with my Bible reading plan. I had veered off course about mid March, and after accepting a very dear friend’s advice, to pick up from where I am today without trying to catch up, I opened up my favorite book trusting God to meet me and get me back on track without obsessing about the days missed (which the same friend reminded me I have read these books before AND I could go back and read when time allows currently). As I read through Song of Solomon (not a personal favorite) and Numbers…I’m partial to the Old Testament for sure but Leviticus and Numbers…well, let’s say ALL of God’s Word is beneficial, so I chomp on through it and trust that it does this body and soul good. I read on into Matthew. But this morning’s additional verse for me in my Writing to God venture leads me head long into one serendipitous moment.
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
2 Corinthians 1:20-22
Praise the God of Yes, in Jesus!
This was a perfect Easter morning kiss for me.
Have you ever felt kissed on the head by your Heavenly Father?
I pray many kisses are bestowed upon you from your Heavenly Father, in the form of precious gems of truth from His Holy Word.
I watched the conclusion of The Bible TV Series this Sunday night. I reserved my comments until watching the complete series. First I want to say I enjoyed and looked forward each Sunday to watching this epic offering from History Channel and…Hollywood. That being said I did notice many flaws, yet was able to enjoy it. I read a number of views on this and I just want to say brethren, please…”stop dragging my heart around.” I. Liked. It. It was imperfect. As is your view. Let’s move on and thank God that we can even have the freedom to see, such a program on the telly at this point in time. God is not limited by Hollywood productions, History Channel, Bible Translations, translators or even you and me. Oh, ye of little faith…
This week I got to speak on the phone to my West Coast BFF, Sara! We have a special love for Palm and Easter Sunday because many moons ago, God did a major miracle in both our lives during that week. He brought us to life in Christ! That is a story worthy of it’s own post. Coming soon…Meanwhile, I miss her since her move from the East but am so grateful for our connection in Him.Proverbs 17:17 says a friend loves at all times…grateful for a handful of sisters who really embrace this verse, and me. Cally is calling…
