God allows things to happen for a reason. Why does it take me so long to realize that God is in control? Shame on me for not turning to Him first. My children are watching how I handle situations and what better way to handle them but to give them to God.
I think the next verse- which is often left off- makes it even better: "Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me."
Verse of Encouragement! I think it's really awesome to know that God will not only be with me through the hard stuff but he will FIGHT for me! Wow, I really rest in his promise of that for me, this week.
As for me, I know that my Redeemer LIVES, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see Him for myself. Yes, I will see Him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought! Job
hebrews For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
2 Timothy has to be one of my favorite bible verses. I learned it around 10 years ago and repeated until I felt better. I still do that. A very good friend of mine just sent me this verse and i just don't know if its known how much it means to me.
