Living the adventure

 

Why do I cower so much in the night

And depend on my failing wisdom and might?

My enemies may be too strong for me,

But my God is the powerful One, the Almighty.

 

I will cry out to Him when danger draws near.

I will call on His name when my heart beats in fear.

O God, rescue me from the onslaught of attacks.

Calm my heart and remind me of the facts—

A Guest Post by Connie Wohlford

Katy here. I have another wonderful post to share with you about the value of God’s Word. This one comes from a dear friend, Connie Wohlford, whom I met at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. She writes Bible studies and children’s books, and today she talks about what Bible study means to her.

Just a few days ago my fifteen year old grandson, Michael, asked, “Granny, how can someone really know for sure that they’re saved?”

That’s a heavy-duty question for this young man to come up with, but I was glad he did. I told him his question was very common and that I had wondered that myself in years past. I went on to tell him that the best way to be confident that we’re saved is to read and study our Bibles.

A Guest Post by Beckie Lindsey

Katy here. I have the pleasure of introducing you to a writer friend whom I met last year at a conference. Beckie Lindsey loves God’s Word, and I’ve asked her to write about hiding Scripture in our hearts by memorizing it. Here are some practical tips, and I hope you’ll check out Beckie’s blog for more insightful posts.

“Memorizing Scripture is easy!” said no one.

I wish I could tell you there’s a special technique that makes memorizing Scripture easy peasy. But there isn’t (at least that I know of!). Nope. It takes good old fashioned discipline. However, I can tell you it’s so worth all of the effort. Allow me to share how I began memorizing Scripture and how it has transformed my relationship with God and others. You see, as we grow closer to God, the natural byproduct is loving others better. But first a disclaimer: I’m still growing in this. I’m not one of those people who can recite entire chapters of the Bible. Not yet, anyway.
