Whatever YOUR theme word is, YOU choose the verses that reflect the meaning of that topic word to YOU.
I've been working on a #STEADFAST page for a while now, adding verses as I encounter them in my Bible reading...or occasionally while scrolling through my Instagram feed.
Whenever I'm feeling a little restless or unsettled, it helps me to reflect on verses that remind me to be STEADFAST in all my ways, trusting in the Lord for the next step in my life - whether it's a baby step or a giant leap of faith.
This morning while I was working on this page, I was struck again by the phrase "people who KNOW their God shall STAND FIRM..." We need to KEEP digging into His Word and KEEP that prayer line of communication going to KNOW our God.
This is an ongoing process! We have to KEEP praying and trusting God each day, continuing to build up our faith.
I completed my page by adding this verse from Colossians: "...continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the HOPE held out in the gospel." (Col 1:23)
If I had allowed myself to get "stuck" on just adding verses to my #biblequiltjournal page that only had the word STEADFAST in them, I would have missed this one.
Today I needed this reminder of HOPE and to keep leaning forward in faith...that is being steadfast to me.
"May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ." 2 Thessalonians 3:5
