This year, 2020, has seen blessings from above each day. New O’Hana Farm has been healing ground to explore and grow in the Lord. My daily bible verse arrives at 5:15 a.m. with a soft ding from my phone. I can’t wait to get up, let the pups out, and see what verse is waiting to be read. With a thankful heart, I pray to the Lord through the good days and the bad, through the night, and day. I have been doing this since I was a little girl. When I was about 6 years old, I prayed that the Lord would come in to my heart, save me, and take away my sins. My prayer continued, thanking Jesus for dying on the cross, taking on our sins, arising from the dead, and preparing Heaven for us. My life is not perfect, and I have not always been a good example, but I pray to follow His path, and get up and try again. I always pray for ways to share the simple prayer I prayed when I was so young. I am not shy to ask Him for what I want, and that is that all of my family and friends will ask Him in to their hearts, and that we will all spend eternity together. No matter what age, or what you have done, the Lord wants to be your Savior, being in your life, daily path, and prayers. He made me, you, and wants to have a relationship with us. I feel so blessed to have the Lord’s continual love and that I can pray anywhere, anytime. John 3:16 Have a beautiful and blessed day! :)Jen
Colossians 2:7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. NIV Amen!
Looking through bible verses this morning for strength, I thanked the Lord that He does not just make us and leave us alone. He wants to be in our lives. He wants us to seek Him out, pray to Him. To grow and show our (beauty) kindness, love, and to help others by encouraging them, every day.
Being led this morning to my parents family bible, I felt like I looked through its beautiful pages for the very first time in 50 years. Why did I take it from the shelf this morning? Because I wanted to hold the bible in my hand.
On my phone is my.bible.com and I love to hear the chime when my daily verse has arrived. Reading Psalm 143:10, prayer filled my heart I would be led by my Saviour in all that I will do.
Today, I read the daily bible verse, but wanted to hold my bible. Going to the bookshelf, there was the family bible. As beautiful outside, as inside. The colored pages told stories.
Turning to the back, Red Lettering Showed a Promise from Jesus. Gorgeous Maps with Index. Gold Tabs with the Books of the Bible. Index. List of the Laws of the Bible, Tax, Court, Military, Citizenship, Family Life, Inheritance, and much more. Subject Directory to Paragraph Headings, which would lead any one of us to Several Verses in the Bible to Help us Learn. A Dictionary and Concordance.
The front of the Bible was just as amazing! A Picture in Color of a family gathered together as the dad read to them from the pages of the bible. The Lord standing there, silently, lovingly, watching them. And, the verse at the bottom read from Matthew 18:20, Where Two Or Three Are Gathered Together In My Name, There Am I In The Midst Of Them. My dad taught us from the Bible my whole life, and still does. He became a Baptist Minister when I was 6 years old. He is almost 82 and he still shares the Bible and the Lord’s Love daily wherever he goes.
My husband read nightly to our children. When they were young, it was from a Large Children’s Bible Story Book with Colored Pictures. To my delight, this Family Bible has a section of Bible Stories For Children. The Army that Won with Pitchers and Lamps (Judges 7:15-23), and even lists the page number so one can easily find the story. Stories of Moses and the Burning Bush (Exodus 3:1-6). Joseph’s Brothers Sell him into Slavery (Genesis 37:1-36) The Walls of Jericho Came Tumbling Down (Joshua 6:2-20) an on, an on!
Past this Wonderful Find, is Daily Bread Throughout The Year! A list of Bible Verses for Holy Days! And, a Passage from the Bible for each day of the Month of the Year!
My excitement shows, I know, and I am thankful. Reading a verse and/or passage from the Bible daily is something I never want to take for granted. Share verses and stories with others. Share your excitement! Pray daily and Have a Blessed Day. :)Jen
