These past two weeks have been quite difficult. I was pondering the thought of going into specific details listing all the different ways which made for some very rough days. Okay, I admit it, I DID more than ponder, I had my complaint list all typed out and ready to share!
However, the Lord reminded me, ever so gently, that by doing so would be nothing more than murmuring and complaining!
We all have troubles and trials to deal with so why should I name mine one by one? It's sufficient to say that it's been some rather rough times, BUT GOD has been faithful AS ALWAYS and has seen me though day after day after day!
There are days when my illness interferes with my daily devotions. My eyes won't focus correctly which makes reading my Bible nearly impossible and my concentration is nowhere to be found! NOT complaining, just stating a fact!!
my personal time
in God's Word!
So I do the next best thing.
I have the little guy inside my Bible read to me!
Do you have a little guy inside your Bible?
It's really rather cool!
He comes with the Bible app which I have downloaded on my phone and on my tablet!
All I need to do is press "the button" and the little man takes off reading to me!
It is, or I should say, "he" is a lifesaver on the really rough days!
Also in the middle of the night when I find myself wide awake, I just hit the button on my phone app and hear him read God's Word to me!
There were a few days while the little man inside my Bible was reading to me when I was able to jot down a few verses or at least the references to the verses.
I'd like to share these verses with you.
I pray these words from God are an encouragement to you no matter where you find yourself today.
Whether it's juggling finances to be able to pay everyone who seems to be screaming for money or coddling and soothing the whimpers of your precious one month old baby!
Coping day in and day out with the unrelenting symptoms of a chronic illness or living day by day in the blissful moments of being a beaming newly wedded bride!
Mourning the loss of a dear loved one or rejoicing over a wayward child who has returned to their first love, the Lord Jesus Christ!
You fill in the blank with your own current life situation.
For EVERY situation!
Day and night!
Seven days a week!
read it personally
as a little man
inside your Bible
reads to you!
"I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord."
"Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name."
I Chronicles 29:13
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might."
"How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee."
"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
I Corinthians 15:57
"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."
"And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible."
