Ok, with a title like “Good Books…”, how could I not make my first post about THE Good Book!
I love God’s Word. You have to know when you read it that it is His Word to be able to understand it better. I, sometimes, can’t wait to hear what He has to say to me. And, sometimes, I think wow, wish I did not know that one! (I only think it, usually, for the first little bit while it is showing me how utterly pitiful I am)!
My favorite verses are:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
I am trying to run the race that was given to me. But I can only do it while looking at Jesus. When I take my eyes off of Him, I sink, just like Peter did while walking on the water.
Please tell me your favorite verses! I will post them and your comments!
