My inspiration to blog tonight comes from a few scriptures I read tonight. If some of you don't already know, I'm trying to read the whole Bible. While this goal is a big one - I WILL accomplish it. I've started with the New Testament but I started to get kinda lazy with it, so I mixed it up. I read the whole book of Psalm to take a little break. I finished Psalm tonight and now I'm working on Mark. If you're interested, here is what I've read so far:
Matthew, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Psalm.
So I have 6 books left in the New Testament. Not too shabby, eh?
Okay, so on to the scriptures:
"In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul." -Psalm 138:3
I just think it's so amazing how God can give us strength to go through anything. 'If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.'
"....Happy are the people whose God is the Lord." -Psalm 144:15
Christians have to truly be the most happiest people on earth because of the hope that is in our hearts. We know who our God is and we know He will always provide. We have a whole book to prove it!
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite." -Psalm 147:3-5
My heart started beating a little bit faster when I read this verse. God has the ability to count EVERY star and name them all. Also, His understanding of everything never ends.
These are just a few of the many verses that I highlighted in my Bible tonight. (I'm kinda a highlight freak.)
Our God is sooo great! Praise be to Him.
