From: Behold the Lilies- Daily Meditations for Christian Women (Verna Mast & Susan Schwartz)
😇: John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
😇: 1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life.
📚: John was so convinced about his faith he could not help but talk about the things he had seen and heard. His faith remained stable even after being dipped in hot oil and banished to the Isle of Patmos. The passing of years and the changing of circumstances only solidified his belief.
🦋: As a believer in Christ, all my thoughts and motives come under Christ’s Authority.
🎬: I must remain faithful no matter what is on the horizon today or in the future.

Slow But Sure (Glen Packiam) 😇: Matthew 13:32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree.
📚: The parables of the mustard seed and yeast compare God’s reign here on earth to small, hidden, and seemingly insignificant things whose work is slow and gradual.
🦋: The outcome of my life—the tree and the bread—will be God’s doing not mine.
🎬: I must resist the temptation to take matters into my own hands, to grasp for power, and to justify my dealings in the world by the outcomes they produce.

The Inspiring Word 😇: 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for showing people what is wrong in their lives, for correcting faults, and for teaching how to live right.
💡: Some view Scripture as outdated, boring and tiring. In this culture of undeniable pursuit for quick answers and instant gratification, God’s Word can get lost in the worlds busyness. God’s Word is the roadmap to navigating life. In it His teaching, hope, grace, and love live.
🦋: God has gifted me His precious Word to guide me and inspire me.
🎬: Picking up the Bible will strengthen my heart, and give me renewed inspiration to follow Him, obey Him, and dedicate my life to Him.
