Therefore, I am going to take the opportunity to work on this and invite all of you to join in. I want to focus on a monthly scriptural passage, working to find ways to cultivate that message in my behaviors: thinking, talking, DOING. I invite you to comment, if you choose, and share any insights you may have on the scripture to help expound upon its meaning or practical application of the message.
I do not know where this will go or if anyone will want to participate, but I know it will strengthen me and through that strength I know I will have more to give in all areas of my life.
Recently, I took a religion course studying the words of Isaiah and I did not do very well (long story), yet I did take from the experience a greater love for and understanding of this ancient prophet of God. With that said, I will begin this new adventure with a scripture from the book of Isaiah:
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
Isaiah 12:2 (KJV)
I want His strength and His song to be mine and I do not believe either is of a sad or pitiful sort. The King of Kings rose triumphant and will come again with concourses of angels singing His praises.
I will strive to remember these things in my times of weakness and trial.
