Oh stars!! How exciting!! I'm sitting here with my spiral cards....just wrote down my first verse for the new year!!!!!!! Are you ready to witness?????????! :)
Come on friends.....we can do this. How crazy is this world and how greatly we need God's Word dwelling in our hearts?!! In our minds??! In our MOUTHS!!!!!! To share. To witness. To serve. Words to eat...instead of everything else in the fridge and the pantry...can I get a witness???! :) Eat these words...not the food when you are stressed, lonely, bored, overwhelmed....you know what I'm talking about, chicas! :)
Okay...my first verse to learn in these next two weeks! This is it:
"It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere.
Keep His commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him." Deut. 13:4 NIV
Now then....a little commentary. This is extra...just because the house is quiet!! :)
"It is the Lord your God you must follow...." not to follow the world, not your friends, not society....follow the LORD....HE is your God....
"MUST REVERE"...doesn't say "might" "could" or "should" says MUST! :) Oh me..."revere"--what we all need to do more of "with" God....revere Him, honor Him, admire Him, respect Him, think highly of Him, put Him on a pedestal (okay...a throne will do!)..... 'Nuf said.
"OBEY & SERVE" .....this is THE ONLY reason I've been attempting to put together writing and teaching a Bible study. Trust me. I didn't sit down to do this....God has laid it on my heart and I get to obey...yes, GET TO and this is my gift to Him...to serve and if I only have one person show up in Bible study....and they get SOMETHING out of how to read the Bible in a more meaningful way, then I have served the Lord and obeyed! :)
"HOLD FAST" ....not to the pop, the cookies, the icing, the candy.....(can you see where my thoughts are today?) hold fast to the Lord, your God, whom you get to obey and serve...hold fast. That one Spirit filled moment might slip away...do NOT miss God and how He wants to bless you this year. It's a face paced world...no matter who you are....its goes by quickly and sometimes we get swept away.....grab what He gives you and treasure it! HOLD ON...it's gonna be a good one!!!!
Now then...YOUR turn. You don't have to explain why you choose this...that's between you and God. You don't even have to explain what the verse means to you. Just type your verse and where its at and even what version. (we might need to learn it for ourselves later!)
To do this: just click on the link below for "comments" and leave your verse and name! Walaa! That easy. You MIGHT need an account from google...its free...just sign up for it. Or you can click "anonymous" but still leave your name in your actual post!
come on....YOUR turn to be an MVP! Learn your verse in the next two weeks using the RENEW method you watched in Beth's blog. And then, remember on the 15th, we'll do this again and you'll be ready to pick another verse.
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
