Yesterday was my friend Joan Tornquist’s birthday. She has been part of the Facebook 10 day Bible Verse Challenge and since it was her birthday she used her birthdate for a verse. She chose “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 as her verse for the day.
This verse is truly the appropriate verse for Joan. She lives this verse everyday of her life. She is a lot stronger than she thinks but she knows from whom her strength comes on a daily basis. I admire her for this so much. I am blessed to have her for a friend.
Keeping with this train of thought, I began searching through the Bible for my birthdate, 5/19. Genesis and Exodus didn’t really speak to me so I skipped over the Psalms 5:19, there were only 12 verses in chapter 5. On to Proverbs, nope this one is the warning against adultery. Back to Leviticus 5:19, this one hit too close – guilty of wrong doing against the LORD. Numbers 5:19 back to adultery again. Deuteronomy 5:19 part of the Ten Commandments. Judges 5:19, nope. Oh boy, the next book is Ruth – no go only four chapters. But I love all four of them. On to I Samuel no verse 19. On to 2 Samuel 5:19 the Lord is handing the Philistines over to David. I Kings 5 only 18 verses.
Looks like I am going to be doing a lot of looking for my birthdate verse. It will be a glorious verse when I do find it.
Enjoy the blessings God sends your way today and enjoy the flowers.
