As you may have read here a couple of weeks ago, I finally got a smartphone. I got a Droid. One of the things I love most about it is the ability to download various apps. One of my favorite apps I have downloaded is a Verse of the Day app. I also have various games like everyone else. But the Verse of the Day app is the most encouraging app, by far.
I am having yet another really rough day. While trying to think about what to write about today I kept thinking all negative thoughts. I really try not to blog when I’m feeling so bad because I don’t want to drag everyone down with my negativity. So, today I have decided to share some of the scripture that I have saved as favorites in my phone. What can be more encouraging than the Word of God. I hope you are blessed from the sharing of His Word here today.
Isaiah 26:3 – You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you.
Proverbs 17:17 – A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Psalm 103:2,3 – Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.
And one of my favorites – when Joseph was talking to his brothers so many years after they sold him off to slavery –
Genesis 50:20 – You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is no being done, the saving of many lives.
These verses assure me that God has a purpose in my suffering. He has a purpose in yours as well. If you need assurance of that grab your Bible and read a few verses.
Now I will finish with my life verse:
Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Amen and Amen
