My verse was John 1:14, from memory:
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
We had a guest speaker for worship Sunday and my memory verse was part of his text from John 1:1-14. It was awesome! The young messenger of God spoke about how it is hard to understand the vastness of God and the persons of Father, Son and Spirit. The Lord used the sermon to really speak to my heart and encourage me that even though I believe and I know Him, I don't understand everything there is to know about the with and was of God. He also shared the Scripture in Ezekiel 36:26 that talks about hearts of stone become hearts of flesh. We went to Scriptures about God's grace and the blessings available to those who believe.
I heard the Spirit speak to my heart as God's Truth was shared Sunday:
To wrap my mind around God's with and was
In my grey matter, is sometimes just fuzz
But this I KNOW:
The Word has changed my life, once characterized as a mess
This I BELIEVE:
The Word became life giving flesh
Without a doubt, He has radically changed my heart of stone
Within my heart of flesh is now His home
I join in praise for His free grace gift
Not dependent on me, He's poured out without thrift
The Word is evidence to all who believe
His blessing available to any willing to receive
Next week, I plan to tuck Romans 1:16 in my heart: For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
This verse made me think of these tulips near our front door. Although their green leaves and stems were hidden behind the garden hose holder, their blooms are now just bursting forth, proclaiming in the place they were planted and placed "I'm not ashamed! The whole earth is full of His glory!"
