Spiritual Sunday . "When I Feel Afraid"


Thank you Charlotte and Ginger for hosting these Spiritual Sundays. To join in, post and add your name at  http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/

"The Bible's words are our hope..." Billy Graham


 Sometimes I feel down....or a bit lost. I've figured out though...if I pick up my Bible....and read...I start feeling better. I don't always know what I'm reading. It doesn't always make sense at the moment. But I look at it... sort of like taking medicine. I don't know what's in the ingrediants but there's something in it that always makes me feel better.. I think...there's nothing more powerful than His Word. When I feel afraid...when I think I've lost my way....still He's there right beside me.

I confess that I don't read the bible on a daily basis. But I do get fed on line from all my fellow christian bloggers and some devotional sites. Sometimes when I read the bible, the Holy Spirit will lead me to scripture that is so relevant and so real. I know it is God teaching me what I need to learn at the moment.
Thanks for sharing Amy Grant's old song, Thy Word. It is so beautiful and still a favorite of mine. Bless you, Sarah.

I was listening to the Christian radio station on my way to work last night and that's what the lady talked about...His Words are alive! Glory be to God! Take care sister and have a great weekend.

Thank you for sharing this. It reminds me of how far I've come since I saw her in concert many, many years ago before she became mainstream. It still pops into my head when I need it.

I was just at church for the first time in a long time and the readings from the bible almost jumped out at me. You are so right in turning to the bible.

You have discovered an important Biblical truth. Proverbs says the Word is health to all our flesh. The absolute BEST medicine with NO side effects.;)

Charlotte said...

His Word certainly is a lamp that lights our way. Thank you for sharing the beautiful post and beautiful video.

Happy Sunday Karen,
This is a great post. I honestly don't know how I would survive without His Word--it has become a lifeline for me and I never want to live without it. Thank you.
Dianne

Cathy said...

That is beautiful, Sarah. His Word is like medicine, health to our bones. Thank God for His healing Word.

Holly Renee said...

I'm not a huge bible reader but I can relate because some of the spiritual texts I have just immediately make me feel at peace. There's something comforting about loving words, whether from the bible or another source, that can just warm our hearts.

Lynda Young said...

His word is the Living Word. You are right: there's nothing more powerful than His Word.

Renee said...

Oh yes, Sarah! God's word is a great comfort to us. I find at times just quotiing the few scriptures I have memorized takes away my fear or worry. There is power in the scriptures.

Prof. Lucy Ruth said...

too true - that's how I USUALLY read the Word. Just taking it in. THanks for stopping by and leaving an encouraging word. God bless!
