What a week. So much I wanted, uh-hmm, needed to do this week. There just didn't' seem to be enough time in the day. And, with much of my - not at work time- spent filling the emotional love bank for my kids I had a hard time justifying hanging out on the computer. The 'want to do ' stuff had to wait.
Unfortunately, that included my memory verse. It's been on my mind, but I'm just now getting time to share with my cyber friends. For you newbies to my blog, I'm taking the Siesta Challenge with Beth Moore and committing to learn 24 verses this year.
My current verse is Titus 1:2 (NIV)
a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time.
I chose this verse, after hearing it used in a sermon on Victory FM (Liberty's radio station 88.3) It spoke to my heart, as I was reminded that God's promises, all of them are true. My faith and hope is based on truth. Truth that was established before time began.
And, this isn't it people. Eternal life- now that's what I'm talking about.
In the last week, two precious ladies I was blessed to know died.
Sweet Etholene was in her 80's, and Kathy was, well most of us would say too young to die. Both impacted my life in different ways, but what was the same was their love and hope and faith in God's promises. And, knowing there was more to live for than just this life- the hope of eternal life. They both loved God- you knew it when you were with them- even when they weren't speaking because His love radiated in their lives and on their faces.
God used both of them in my life, and I know hundreds of other lives as well.
They stood on God's promises and they are both in His presence.
I'm standing on God's promises and hoping for that day.
What are you standing on?
