One of the big reasons I started this blog was in hopes that I could be an encouragement to others, and lately I’ve been feeling like I haven’t been focusing on
that others enough.
While this was on my mind, I thought maybe all of us can, each week, share a Bible verse that has jumped out at us recently. Thus, Scripture Sunday.
The other day, a friend said some hurtful things to me, totally out of the blue. I was feeling down about it, so decided to read some Psalms, since they have a tendency to provide a good pick-me-up. After a minute or two of reading, I came across one that spoke to me. This is also the verse I chose for the Scripture Sunday Button.
“I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me.”
Another version says “..for He has been good to me.”
And indeed He has; this is what I need to focus on. Yes, words can hurt, but God’s truth is what I need to focus on. Yes, there are hard times, but God has blessed us with more than we have been burdened with. God is good all the time, and He is good to me all the time.
