A neighborhood girlfriend invited me to a summer camp for a weekend. We had to learn this 'theme' verse . I did not receive Christ until I was 14 years old - so even at age 8 God was preparing the way for my life in Christ - as He says - He knew and loved me - even before I ever knew and loved Him. Isn't that so like God - yet so amazing? It's hard to wrap my mind around.
How about you? Have you seen God's Hand over your life?
Questions to ponder for this post:
Let God speak to your heart through the photo and the verse. What goals are you pressing toward? What mark are you aiming to hit? Are those goals included in God's high calling - for His kingdom purposes? In Christ?
Many years ago [1993 - I believe it was] my oldest daughter, Rebekah, wrote a speech as valedictorian of her Christian High School commencement program. It was entitled:
Only What's Done for Christ Will Last!
I have never forgotten those words and recently the LORD keeps reminding me of them each and every day. They help me to make better choices for the everyday things going on in my life as well as the big things that God is doing.
Looking UPward and Choosing JOY,
