So sorry ladies! The summer is getting away from me and I am late in posting again.
Last year at this time my verse was Hebrews 4:16
16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
I took these verses from Ann Voskamp’s blog. I can’t even find it or remember exactly why it spoke to me then, but this verse has not ceased speaking to me since. Grace. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? God’s bountiful grace for us in the form of the greatest gift ever given, the life of His own son, Jesus Christ. In light of that, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence…”
This year, I continue in Matthew 6, memorizing Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount with 4 other amazing ladies, with whom I had the glorious opportunity to break bread and share the Word this past weekend. What a memorable time of laughing, learning and sharing how the Word is changing us from the inside out.
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”
My only comment about this passage is on the phrase “when you pray…” Jesus did not say, “if you pray,” He said “when.” So let’s get to it! If you’d like more discussion on these verses, please click here.
God bless each and every one of you. Thank you so much for joining me on this journey!
