Siesta Scripture

We're moving right along with the memory verses...

These next few verses will be easy for me to pick since I'm supposed to be memorizing ones for my "Duty or Delight" Bible Study...but I already love the first verse, so TA-DA... the next one on the list.

For He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy & blameless in His sight.
-Ephesians 1:4

*Have you ever been chosen for a team as a little child... you stand there hoping you get picked... pleading with your eyes, "Dont leave me behind" & then when you get picked for something simple, it's like you won the lottery.  How much cooler that the one picking this time is God...Yep, He chose US...

*..."before the foundation of the world" .... how cool a reminder is that?  Can you just imagine at one point God was thinking, "I'll think its time I made this thing called "earth"- I also know that way down through the years, there will be this creation called Rebecca Jo & I'm going to choose her as my child"... go ahead, insert your own name instead of mine.  Tell me how amazing that is to imagine... & its true...

*..."to be holy & blameless in His sight" ... that always just takes my breath away... stops me in my tracks... because 'holy' & 'blameless' are not two words I think of when I think of my life... but yet, in God's sight - the One who knows ALL, he will see us as pure, clean, holy & blameless... tell me that's not the best news you've heard all day!

So there's my next verse.  I love the ones that are simple but pack a punch!
