The Message (MSG) 31 So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? I’ve always loved this verse. It’s one of my “go-to’s” when I need the courage of my conviction. I also like the whole passage (31-39) and THE MESSAGE version. 31-39 So, what do you think? […]
There are many different practices and teachings, from faith teachings to the science of psychology, that tell us; that which we think about most is what we will make happen.

I believe that God has room for everyone and this verse reminds me of that whenever I feel myself becoming narrow minded or judgemental. Judy Buckland
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your […]
is one of my favorite verses…short, by says so much. I especially like the last bit…walk humbly with my God. I am constantly humbled by the demands of Christianity and I think I always will be. The best I can do is walk humbly with Him at my side, helping me forwards.
