Today is my last post using the Droid App Bible verses. It's been an interesting month and I'll probably do it again someday. I have a couple of thing I would like you all to pray about. First, my cousin, who is hearing-impaired and is a MRDD person has cancer and is having trouble understanding what is going on with himself. It's very hard on his family, trying to help him understand. His name is Eddie.
Secondly, tomorrow I am the featured blogger (writer) for Seeds of Faith. I hope each of you will go the site and read what I put. I pray that God will bless the site and will help my words be his words. The site is http://www.seedsoffaithwomen.com. I'm excited to be part of this group of Godly women. I hope you get a chance to go see what all of write.
Okay, on with the show...
The funny thing about this being my last Droid App post is the verse that it gave me is Genesis 1:1! The very first verse in the Bible. God has such a sense of humor!
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
If he had not created the heaven and the earth, there would be no story. There would have been no backdrop for anything. How could we have a flood, earthquakes, armies fighting, angels falling from grace, Christ's birth and death or his resurrection? Creation is one of those things most of us take for granted.
I have a garden (if you go to http://cfoxes33.blogspot.com you can see some pictures of it). Every year we grow different things. We grow tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, zucchini, watermelon, peppers, whatever floats our boat. We try to mix it up. This year our green peppers didn't come up. But we had radishes that did pretty great. God has given us a wet spring and humid summer, so the tomatoes are full, the beans are plump. But sometimes we expect those things. But there is always something going on. I hate to weed. I usually don't do it until I realize that the weeds are choking the good plants.
Everything has to have a beginning. Luckily, God stated our beginning simply. This is one Bible verse we can all remember. Are there other verses we want to remember? Make it a goal to take a verse and remember it. Why is it we can remember your social security number, but not 10 words together from the Bible? Say them everyday. Our minister is starting a study on the Bible. He wants everyone to learn the books of the Bible in order. I use to know them all. I know about half of them, getting the minor prophets mixed up. So that is my goal for August. Make a goal and go for it. Let me know what it is and I will try and hold you accountable to it.
Once in a while we are all creative too. I am probably the least creative person I know. My daughter is very creative, as is Mike. I have good ideas, but can't seem to get them out. I will admit I am creative when it comes to music, but only to sing it. But, being created in God's image we all have some creative juice flowing through us. Some just got a whole lot more than others!
So as I ramble on today, remember that everything has a beginning, everything has been created, and we are the image of God. What a mess things could have been without this verse explaining it all to us!
