52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 49

It’s week 49 and the end of this series is in sight.

This weeks verse reminds us that if we will seek the Lord, He will deliver us. He hears our every cry, prayer and praise. He delivers us from our tribulations in His time.

I seek Him in His Word, in nature, in my co-workers, and in friends and family.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me,

and delivered me from all my fears. 

Psalm 34:4

He delivered me from all my fears by going to the cross…and the good news is He also delivered you from your fears when He went to the cross.

52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 48

Hopefully, you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are now preparing for Advent. I was blessed to spend the day with Mom and we had a terrific turkey dinner at Denny’s Restaurant. It’s just the two of us so why bother cooking?

I do not have much to say about this weeks verse. As always, may God show us how this verse applies to our lives this week.

You will show me the way of life,
    granting me the joy of your presence and
the pleasures of living with you forever.

Psalm 16:11

(NLT)

52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 47

How to keep your mind stayed on God? Most people think that praying or reciting Bible verses and Bible Journaling is the way of keeping your mind on God. While they are good ways to keep your mind on God, if you open your eyes and drink in the beautiful scenery around you – that will also help you keep your mind on God.

We often go through our day with eyes closed to His beauty and therefore miss His presence and His peace.

So during this week keep your eyes open for God’s beauty all around you and experience His perfect peace and then remember to give thanks for His perfect peace.
