Part of my wanting to blog was to record my spiritual journey. My spiritual life is part of who I am and so I didn't want to have a separate journal to record what I thought God was trying to tell me or the lessons I was learning.
In the past, along with the weekly memes, updates on my kids, rants and raves, I have posted on specific times when I've felt challenged by God or where I saw Him working in my life or the life of my family. The last few Sundays, I have posted a piece of scripture that I felt God had personally given me during the week. A few words that came from the Living Word and spoke to my heart.
That got me to thinking about how I would love to hear from other bloggers on how scripture is speaking to them and how cool it would be to share a little bit of our spiritual journey with each other. What do you think?
I was thinking of making it a weekly meme thing with a Mr. Linky and graphic buttons (still needing some tweaking). I thought of giving two options. One; to share a piece of scripture along with how that piece of scripture was speaking to you. Two; to share how God is working in your life or how you experienced Him during the week.
I would love to hear from you whether you think you would participate in something like this. I don't want to register for a Mr. Linky unless I know there is some interest. I thought Sunday would be ideal but maybe not. I've noticed that a lot of bloggers take this day off from posting. Anyways, let me know. You can leave your thoughts in a comment or e-mail me.
Here's my "scripture speaks" for the week.
God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it—no matter what. Hebrews 4:12-13 The Message
I thought this piece of scripture was appropriate for my post today. I love the part, "God means what he says." We can't just use part of the Bible - the part that we like. He gave us the whole Bible and every word is true and meant for us to follow.
