Write These On Your Heart

Susan, my late wife, kept journals.   I still find some of her thoughts in various notebooks. This is something that I found. Susan was a great encourager and one who loved God in spite of her health problems. The following was her desires and hopes.
Susan began “With the hope that these words from the Scriptures may become a part of me”.



Bible Verse for Today: “In all things I gave you an example” (Acts 20:35).
Robert Pinsky wrote in The Sound of Poetry: “The art of poetry is not the words. The art of poetry is what happens inside of the listener or reader when they experience a poem.” In the same sense, we might say that Christianity is not just the words. Yes, words are necessary, for God’s Word is the word of life. However, Christianity is much more.


Who Are You?

+Bible Verse for Today: “And he (Christ) died for all, that they that live should no longer live unto themselves, but unto him who for their sakes died and rose again” (II Cor. 5:15).
Robert S. McGee, on page 27 of his book The Search for Significance, says that most men base their self-worth on a lie propagated by Satan. That lie tells us that our self-worth is defined by our performance plus others’ opinions of us. When we believe this, we let Satan deceive us.
