I’m almost a week late with this, but I finally have a verse to share. I was reading along in my One-Year Bible, today, doing the day’s reading, and came across this Proverb… it hit me particularly hard, too, as I’ve got a lot of dreams, and I tend to often wonder if they’ll ever come true. Thankfully, this verse says that dreams CAN come true — to those who are living according to God’s plan. 😉
Proverbs 13:19 NLT ~ “It is pleasant to see dreams come true, but fools refuse to turn from evil to attain them.“
This time, my verse is one that I heard while seeing Beth Moore, LIVE!, this past weekend. It was part of her message, and yet it spoke to my heart…
Beth’s message was that God is doing a NEW thing … we just have to stay alert and stay present in order to perceive it. 😉
“”Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it?
There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,
rivers in the badlands.”
~ Isaiah 43: 18-19, The Message
eLisa, of ExtravagantGrace.net, hosts this little event on the 1st & 15th of each month. You pick a Scripture verse to memorize and meditate on for the following two (2) weeks. I’ve decided that I’m going to play along, as I’ve recently come to the conclusion (thanks, Lord!) that I need to memorize more Scripture. 😉
Obviously, given that I’m starting today, on March 1st, it’s going to be more like 20 verses in 2010, for me! LOL. But, that’s okay. It’s still better than the “0 verses” I have had of late! 😉
So, my first verse is the one I’ve got over there in the left sidebar… Psalm 34:4… which says:
So often, I am fearful, and I know I don’t need to be; not with God standing by my side. But, for whatever reason, I still tend to let fear get the best of me.
This verse is a good one to hide in my heart, as it reminds me that God hears me ~and answers me!~ when I cry out to Him with my fears… and that He can rid me of them, once and for all. 😉
