Last April I started a journal. I have started many a journal in my day, and rarely do I finish one. Today, I finished that journal. I thought I'd share some of my favorite scripture, quotes, and thoughts from the past year.
"He did not do many miracles because of their lack of faith." Matthew 13: 58
"You of LITTLE faith, WHY did you DOUBT?" Matthew 14: 31
"Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted."Matthew 15: 28
"Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." Matthew 10:39
It's NOT about ME.
LET GO... TRUST.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." Proverbs 3: 5-6
"O Love that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be."
" 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ " -Jesus (Matthew 25:40)
"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. " Psalm 27: 13-14
"The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, ABOUNDING in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does NOT treat us as our sins deserve OR repay us according to our iniquities. For as HIGH as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us." Psalm 103: 8-12
"If I trust Him, I will obey Him gladly." -Elisabeth Elliot
"Taken in the right spirit these things will develop a mature characeter, and a character of the sort produces a steady hope, a hope that will never disappoint us." Romans 5: 3-4 (Phillips)
"Each person is given something to do that shows who God is." 1 Corinthians 12:7 (MSG)
"I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess." -Martin Luther
