What Keeps Me Going

As I settle into this new world of blogging, I thought it might be fun to have a weekly feature focusing on inspiration.

What better day to begin than Good Friday!

When life is tough — or even when it’s not — I’ve found comfort in the Bible. My favorite parts change from month to month, week to week, or even day to day.  Honestly, I should read it more than I do, because I’ve also found that life is better when I hang on to its promises and truth.

Here’s the verse that’s speaking to me right now, Proverbs 2:7:

“He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.”

    “That whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
    John 3:15-16

    Thanks for this posting, Bristol! This has always been my favorite passage, an entire chapter, actually.

    Psalm 127

    1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
    2It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
    3Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
    4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
    5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

    I am a father of five (4 daughters and a son) ranging in ages from 5 to 23. We are also the grandparents of an ‘unexpected’ but much loved grandaughter. Her mother is a single parent like you, and also like you, doing a great job. It has been a challenge, however her journey has taught her (and her friends) some valuable lessons about how precious and wonderful life is. Your mother is an inspiration and so are you. Have a wonderful Easter.

    I am the father of one daughter, one granddaughter, and two Greatgrandchildren.
    They are precious. Some of the above were surprises nontheless so welcome and loved. There have been/are times when pressures age strong and burdens are heavy, however, in those times we have a marvelous Heavenly Father whom we talk with and he gives grace, strength and keeps us on line. God’s Word is precious to me and my daily habit is to get into the Word of God. God bless you and keep you and your little one in his loving care.

    This is a great verse and it is a great idea to have an inspirational section. How is Trigg? He is what we call in our small family, a darling heart. Good luck to you.

    John 3:16 – and Easter is the fulfillment of God’s love for us in Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection.

    Hi Bristol :)

    I’m not a verse person but I do believe in purpose.
    My purpose is to solve problems. Once I discovered this it kept me from going astray and out of harms way.
