What Keeps Me Going This Week: Deuteronomy 31:6

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, Deuteronomy 31:6.

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.

(Read more.)

I have nothing to fear. God is always with me.  Now, remembering that is another story!

This week, what verses give you strength and courage?

    Amen. God is always with you, Bristol. And so are all your fans. Please remember that when you are in that rehearsal studio/ballroom. You are not alone. By the way, I thought I heard you say, “thank you, Jesus”, as you and Mark were saved on Tuesday night. Thank you for remembering why you are there. All your blessings come from up above. This is a quote from Gilles Marini: Asked if he has discussed November’s election with Bristol Palin (Marini recently received his U.S. Citizenship), he said, “No, but I have to tell you something … I shattered my hamstring, and of the entire cast [besides Peta], the only person that came to me and asked how I was doing and said she was praying for me was Bristol.” You are a blessing, Bristol. You truly are.

    I respect Bristol for not talking politics at DWTS. Giles is very brave to say anything nice about a Palin in LA. We will pray for him too.

    What a wonderful verse. It speaks to me, too and it brought tears to my eyes.
    Giles was so honest and giving regarding his comment, Bristol.

  • Bree Merr

    Very timely scripture and always inspiring. Our prayers are with you. Gilles M. is a gentleman. Hope he is doing better.

    I mostly have studied the bible to go to the cults most everywhere and point out what I find unbiblical.
    I appriciate John 6:39, 40, 44, 54 because (typically) it seems to validate my beliefs as a 5 point Calvinist. That enough has gotten me thrown out of some churches.
    I will cover this you can get it strsight from the horses mouth. We use the acronym TULIP:

    T: total inability, a dead man cannot pray to God to be saved, as we believe (Christ in us that is) our spjrit is made alive (born again). As I did nothing to be born I did nothing to be born again.

    U: unconditional election, God saves who He wants when He wants. I like to point out that Saul was breathing threats against those of the wsy and looking to bring some bound when he was struck down blknd so he could see. Having the spirit and being filled after he met a with the spirit after he met Ananiase are two different things. I call that the double portion. Like Romans 6:11-13 the power is available when we die. Jesus for justification (Rev 7), The Holy Spirit for sanctification (Rev 14), this brings about glorification when we die on earth and we are seated in heavenly places if we can believe (Rev 21). And then tbe works we do are His work in us as we are saved by faith alone.

    L: limited atonment meaning God is capable to save everyone but not effectual.

    I: Irresistible Grace When God calls we answer (unless we are dead, but it is against the law to speak to the dead or touch the dead so provisions are made.

    P: Perservions of the saints (dead people) means “once saved always saved) I like to call it “I did nothing to be saved what could I do to be unsaved

    Please let me recommend two books “all of grace” and “morning and evening” both by Charles Spurgeon -mc
