You Are Precious to God



I love reading the books of the Old Testament.  Somehow the old prophets’ stories always have something to inspire me.  A verse from Isaiah that I had written down in my journal led me to chapter 43 recently. A phrase in verse 4 jumped out at me.
Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you. Isaiah 43:4
You are precious to me…
(insert your name) is precious to God!

Today is Your Day!


Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house,… Luke 19:9

The above verse in the story of Zacchaeus popped into my mind recently so I pulled out my Bible and looked it up. I read and reread the verses that told the story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10.

Zacchaeus like many others had heard about Jesus and he wanted to see him. The crowd was huge and Zacchaeus was short. However he was determined that he was going to see Jesus. He climbed a tree so he could be in position to get a glimpse of the man he had heard so much about. His efforts were rewarded and as Jesus passed by he called Zacchaeus by name and invited himself to his house for dinner.

She Chose Joy

She lived a few houses down from me. She was often outside working in her yard or sitting on her front porch reading. We’d wave when I drove by and sometimes I’d pull over and chat with her for a few minutes. One thing I noticed in the years that we shared the same neighborhood was that she was always smiling...
