Our theme for September 2021 is: BELIEVE!
For those of us suffering in the current heat wave, we are believing that cooler temps are around the corner and eagerly await the crispness of Fall. We are peeking ahead for glimpses of autumn glory because we're familiar with the cycle of seasons, expecting the shift to come in the next few weeks. Our past experience gives credence to this anticipation.
Familiar rhythms in our lives help shape our belief systems, don't they?
What else shapes your beliefs?
Raini, a Bible Quilter from Texas, has cultivated our list of scriptures for us this month and sent me this message to share with you:
- - - BELIEVE - - -
"I know the plans I have for you. Plans of peace and not of evil." Jeremiah 29:11
Being curious as we are, we all have thought from time to time, "what does the future hold?" Lots of time and money have been spent on horoscopes, fortune tellers, tea leaves, cards, etc. I have good news!!! God as our Creator and loving Father does not want us to be led astray. He has very specific plans for our future and shares it openly in His word.
The verses for September are just some of the plans that God has for you and for me……plans of peace and not of evil. However, it hinges on if we believe what He says. As we unwrap each verse, we look at the gifts that our Heavenly Father has for us. Things such as abundant life, peace, eternal life, righteousness, blessings, being established, prosperity, good judgment, knowledge, being of one heart with others, strength, courage, renewed strength, safety, salvation, light, mercy, grace, forgiveness of sins, His power, love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, self-control, a sound mind, never being ashamed, wonderfully made, being a new creation, having an eternal comforter, dwelling in the house of the Lord forever, resurrection.
