August 1 Scripture:
I know the Lord is always with me. I will NOT be shaken, for he is right beside me.
-Psalm 16:8 - NLT
Simple enough ... powerful! Love the idea of letting NOTHING shake me up!
August 15 Scripture:
But sin didnt - & doesnt - have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call GRACE. When its sin versues grace, grace wins hands down.
-Romans 5:20-21 (The Message)
Isnt that a great visual. Grace beating down sin!!! And I love the wording of "Aggressive forgiveness"... think of someone who is aggressive. Someone who keeps going for what they want until they get their way! That's Grace! Punching down sin until it overtakes it! Oh yeah!!!
September 1 Verse:
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, & don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
-Matthew 6:34 (The Message)
I found out yesterday that my health insurance only covers 2 doctors visits a year... a YEAR people! So I went into worry mode last night. I have 10 more months in my year on this policy. I went a 3rd time to a doctor & the bill was $215 since insurance doesnt cover anymore doctor's visits... can you imagine how much it will cost if anything serious happens to me this year? So I found this verse this morning & am tucking it DEEEEEEEEEEP in my heart to remember everything will be OK - no matter what.
