Have you ever had the experience of scripture (one you’ve read a thousand times) jump off the page as if you’re reading it for the first time? I did recently…just a phrase I can’t get out of my head — and realize I need desperately.
No wonder they call His Word living…it breathes new life into our gasping souls. It penetrates our dry bones and percolates within…
Friends, I’m sharing my recent experience with this over at 5 Minutes for Faith today. Would love to share it with you. Won’t you stop by? Simply click on the button below!
And for those who don’t have time, I’ll share the verses I mention here for you to chew on:
He continued this subject with His disciples. “Don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or if the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your inner life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the ravens, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, carefree in the care of God. And you count far more.
Luke 12:22-24 The Message
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve read this passage in numerous translations. It was the last portion this time that stopped me in my tracks, as if I was reading it for the first time.
The ravens, free and unfettered…carefree in the care of God.
Friends, I think I’m finally getting it. And would love to have you stop by and share your thoughts with me, too!
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
