You all know my desire and passion to get all of us in the Word every single day. What better way to use my space here on the Internet than to fill it with Scripture.
Every single day, I will have a new scripture on the blog, sometimes with thoughts about it, sometimes with questions for you to ponder, and maybe sometimes just the scripture itself. But no matter what, I am vowing to publish Truth each day so no matter who comes to this space, can find a treasure. There are no greater words to read than God’s very own words.
So while I will still be publishing my usual blog posts and podcasts, I will also have a scripture each day right here on the blog. I pray this blesses you and encourages us all to get in the Word each day. I also hope the scripture I share here is NOT a substitute for sitting down and opening the Bible yourself…but perhaps a reminder, an encouragement, or a starting point. Ultimately, there is no substitute for getting into His Word each day.
Let’s all vow to be seekers of Truth! Let’s start simply…seeking Him.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you. (ESV)
I used this verse last night to pray over my son who was anxious. I love how it is so simple. All we need to do is trust in Him and we find perfect peace. Other versions use the word “fixed” instead of “stayed.” Fixing our mind on God shows where we put our trust.
Too often my mind races, I get anxious, and I fret. Yet, I am always brought back to this truth. Let my mind be fixed on Him because I TRUST in Him, not in the things swirling around me. So simple. If you are someone who tends to worry or get anxious, choose today to fix your mind on Him.
