March 30: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


Don’t think God doesn’t hear your prayers. He might even raise up your enemy to help you out. Habakkuk 1:1-11

Instead of questioning God as to why He would allow such horrendous things to happen in our world, look instead inside yourself and your faith, which compels you to become the medium of change to those horrendous things. Habakkuk 1:12-2:20

Why do you long for the ‘famous God of lore’ when that God is already meekly inside of you ready to be your strength in how you live. Habakkuk 3

Much love.

    Geez! You had me super stressed there while reading what you wrote until the end. And actually, just to throw this out there, I’m not coming up with any of those words…it’s all said in the Bible. So really, I’m not asking you to do any of that stuff – it’s God. :)
