Words To Live By

Be Strong 
Be Courageous
Why? Because

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:8-9

Thank you, God, for breathing life into ancient words that still speak to us today.

God Is Speaking

The heavens declare the glory of God; 
the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 
Day after day they pour forth speech; 
night after night they reveal knowledge.” 
Psalm 19:1-2
When I am blessed with pleasant weather and blue skies, 
I wander outside.
I step quietly into an ever-changing canvas, 
alive with wonder and beauty.
Nature reflects the awe-inspiring work of the Master Artist.
His brush drips grace like wet paint over the earth, 
over all of his creation.
He speaks and his message is heard
 by those with eyes to see and ears to hear.
May our eyes be open today. May our ears be ever listening. 
Because He is speaking.

And God Said…And It Was So

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” 
Genesis 1:1 
And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear. And it was so.” 
Genesis 1:9

God, the One who spoke the world into being, 
He also made you and me. (Genesis 1:27)
And He said that it was good. Very good. (Genesis 1:31)
Today, let us give thanks to God. Let us pray that our lives would reflect Him and bring Him glory. After all, that is why we were created. (Isaiah 43:7)


Happy Word-Filled Wednesday!

Finding Serenity on a Word-Filled Wednesday

The simplicity of Psalm 121 and a sprinkling of scenes from God’s creation.
Truth + Beauty = Serenity on this Word-Filled Wednesday.

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
   where does my help come from?
 My help comes from the LORD,
   the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
   he who watches over you will not slumber;
 indeed, he who watches over Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep. 
The LORD watches over you—
   the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
 the sun will not harm you by day,
   nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
   he will watch over your life;
 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
   both now and forevermore.
