Day 20 of 365; Flips for inspiration..
“You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.” ~Mary Manin Morrissey
No.. I’m not talking about flips off the diving board (although I probably couldn’t do one and would end up landing flat on my stomach doing a belly flop :)..)
..I am going to share a wonderful and random, fun, way to get inspired by words, verses, scriptures.. in the Bible!..
Sometimes we let fear rule our life, fear of the unknown, so what can we do to keep that fear away, to get hope back again?
Tonight I was in need of some inspiration so I grabbed my Bible and started flipping through the pages, to pick and read random verses. Do you ever do that? If not, I highly recommend that you try it…..
Almost every time I have done this, the page & verse I land on seems to fit right along with what I am going through in life, or gives me the inspiration and words I needed to hear. I believe this is God’s way of leading me into scripture that speaks to my heart.
So right here, right now.. I am going to sit here and do some Bible flips..and share with you what verses I land on,, let me know what verses you get, and also what the ones I landed on mean to you!
Go ahead, no special tricks or skills needed for this…just grab your Bible and start doing page flips, and stop randomly whenever you feel like stopping, then without looking take your finger over the page until you feel , again..like stopping and finally read the verse that you land on,… does it speak to you? Listen.
What do you hear in that verse? Maybe it’s the rare occasion of nothing, and that’s ok, flip through again, and again and again if you have to ,..until you feel inspired.
Stop and listen to your verses, ..to get you started, here are the ones that I landed on tonight;
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts” ~ Psalms 139;23
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” ~Romans 10:9
“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” ~Proverbs 4:23
Your Face Mirrors Your Heart
17 You use steel to sharpen steel,
and one friend sharpens another.
18 If you care for your orchard, you’ll enjoy its fruit;
if you honor your boss, you’ll be honored.
19 Just as water mirrors your face,
so your face mirrors your heart.
