Welcome to my weekend home away from home. Every other weekend I am blessed to hang out here with Barbie and share some words. It is one of my favorite things to do because of all of you. Today I am continuing to look at the rhythms in my life specifically the rhythm of the word. If you missed the other two posts about the 4 W’s click here and here.
God has a claim on my life and has since 2005. In that moment that I became His, I also was given God’s grace and love to share with others. In my new walk with God, my eyes were opened to learning how to be His child and I found the life lessons I needed in His Word. As a child growing up, I went to a structured and ritualistic church. The Bible was never promoted as a book that should be read, reflected on and a place to renew your mind. I missed out on one of the greatest gifts that we have as children of God.
Since my journey began in 2005, I have made time to read the Bible in its entirety, participated in many Bible studies with some amazing women, tried to understand these words that were written for all of us on my own and just tried to make it a daily habit. This past year has not been one of great success when it comes to daily reading in the word and as I have been exploring rhythms, I have scrutinized why I can’t seem to grasp the rhythm of the word.

One verse has popped up more often in the last 6 months than any other and I am learning God has a specific reason why I need this verse right now in my life. Come follow me to The Weekend Brew to learn how God is using this verse to teach me the reason he’s not finished with me yet.
In grace and peace,

I wanted to read the rest of your story, but Barbie’s site seems to be down :(. I’ll check back later. It’s good to read your words again–I’ve been gone for a long time!
You have been gone for a long time and I have missed you. I did a happy dance when I saw you left a comment. I saw you made it to Barbie’s to link up so I know you were able to get to her site. Blessed to see you and looking forward to seeing more of you.
God is definitely not finished with you yet, my friend. I love those verses from Matthew you shared. I have that problem of doubt far more than I care to admit. I’ve always wanted to read the Bible cover to cover. That is an impressive goal you conquered.
I’m always encouraged by your words, Mary. I’ve been offline a lot these past couple of months. It’s comforting to return to your beautiful space here. Allume is going to be much needed for me! Hopefully, it will be here quickly.
A verse that seems to be popping up for me lately is Isaiah 30:21: Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” I’m still trying to decipher all that it means for me, but overall, I’m thinking I need to keep moving forward while listening closely :).
I love the verse that you shared. It fills me in another way to remind me of the absolute goodness of our God. I am happy that you have had a chance to step back and have a vacation from the online world. I am sure that it was much needed. I cannot wait until we go to Allume and soak in all the things that God is going to teach us. Love you friend!
Still so inspiring. 🙂
Have a wonderful week ahead.
Thank you Lux! God is so good to teach us daily and all we need to do is be listening and ready. Blessings!
Love, love the new site Mary.
Thank you Debbie! I’m so glad you stopped by today!
