I'm participating in a blog link-up over at Wives of Faith where military wives can share with each other what's going on in our lives. Some of the questions will be funny, and some serious. It's another way to connect and it sounds good to me!
What's your favorite scripture verse? Why does it have such special meaning to you?
Psalm 34: 4-7(ESV)
4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
It seems I have a running theme here: FEAR and how I continually have to let the Lord take it from me. I often have to remind myself of all the ways the Lord has been with me and that, together, we overcame so many obstacles. I continue to hold His strong Hand and seek Him out. If I let my past rule me I would be full of shame. FULL of it. I would be full of depression and fear and full of trouble. I'd much rather have a radiant face and a glow from the inside out, than a downcast face full of sadness and shame. More than that, I love that "the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them". We are never alone. Never!
I hope you'll join in and share your favorite verse. Even if you're not a military wife, I would love to read what your favorite verses are and why in the comments below.
