The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. 

Isaiah 58:11 NIV

This verse just seems to touch me and let me know that no matter where I go or what I go through he will always be there for me. I also know that his plans are going to be perfect for my life and that he will be shaping me to become what he wants me to become in this life. 
"So, What a blessing when God steps in and corrects you! Mind you, don't despise the discipline of Almighty God! True, he wounds, but he also dresses the wound, the same hand that hurts you, heals you. From one disaster after another he delivers you, no matter what the calamity, the evil can't touch you!"

Job 5:17-19 Message

I guess this just reminded me of a loving parent that corrects but the kid only sees it as a straight punishment. God may correct you in life, but he is still going to be there for you and if you walk with our Savior, no evil can harm you!

So you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s that way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. Mean-spirited ambitions isn’t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourself sound wise isn’t wisdom. It’s the furthest thing from wisdom—it’s animal cunning, devilish conniving. Whenever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of other, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats. Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that live right with God and enjoy it results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.

James 3: 13-18 The Message

What does this mean to you?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3: 5-6

This is one of my favorite verses, well I guess it is my favorite verse. I just really like how it reminds you to just trust in God and how you don't always have to have it all together all the time.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Hebrews 11: 1-3
Everyone needs a faith check when they travel through their walk with God. Where is your faith? Is it growing, stale, or nonexistent? Are you contempt to keep it there or are you going to do something about it?


  1. Hi, Craig. I enjoyed seeing your comment today. And I will check into your blog again very soon. You really, I think, would enjoy going to http;//the interview Just a little extra treat for you. And thanks for going to Significant Values. Be sure to check on more there. It will be helpful, I would say. It's been a lifetime of searching for the truth in the area of eschatology (Bible Prophecy), and to find it at long last has been the richest blessing of my entire life. I hope that many can find comfort and joy in his matchless truths also, as I have. God bless you, Craig. Anita Whalley.
