scripture friday.

Some Christians always have a scripture to put on a situation.

Ha. I am one of those people.

I don’t do it lightly. I do it with the confidence that it is a truth that injects strength into you.

At face value, it may seem like just a pat answer. I don’t do it  frivolously. I do it with compassion and understanding.

When you plug something in, you expect it to work.

That’s the way it is with scripture. There is an unseen current that connects to your heart and mind. You just don’t see it.

Let the word of God settle in. Don’t be so quick to reject it. Even if you’ve been hurt in church, by other people, or God himself.

At the end of the day, you have to believe in something. It all has to make sense, doesn’t it?

Believe God is who he says he is.

Jesus said:

I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

John 14:27

Doesn’t nature teach us so much about God?
