Favorite Verses

Well, we have reached the end of the month.  This sharing together has been a blessing.  Thank you all for being willing to share with us your favorite verse/passage of Scripture.

I will end the month by sharing one of mine.

I Peter 5:6-7      “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”  (NIV)

Life brings blessings, along with good and bad times, troubles, pain, disappointments etc., etc.  We all face these things sometime.  What do we do?  We have choices.  We can have a “pity party” or become revengeful.  We can moan and groan to others or we can cast everything on God.  He is the one who really loves us.  He is the one who provides comfort, direction and encouragement.  He is the one who takes away the pain and sees us though the bad times.  There are 3 little words that I like.  Live, Love and LaughLive for God (humble ourselves and do the right thing).  Love others (put others ahead of ourselves).  Laugh at ourselves (so we made a mistake).  Humbling ourselves before God and completely trusting Him through EVERYTHING.  I am learning that it is a lifelong process putting this into practice, but it is a command from God.  Cast it on Him.  No one cares like Jesus!!
