Thursday's Thoughts: Real Life

Thursday's Thoughts: a taste of what I'm thinking

I love it when scripture comes alive.  Reading and believing are great, but a certain depth of understanding comes from personal, real life experiences. These instances have occurred several times over the past week. The verses applied word for word to a specific circumstance as if they were written just for me.  This has happened numerous times in the past, but it never ceases to amaze me. I'm excited to see what's next!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all you ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:5-6

Commit to the Lord whatever you do and he will establish your plans. -Proverbs 16:3

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. -Proverbs 21:5

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. -Matthew 7:7-8

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. -James 1:5

Food for Thought: "At the end of the day you can focus on what's tearing you apart, or what's holding you together." -unknown
