Email with Pastor – repeat scripture #2

Oh my….. oh how I prayed that verse yesterday and today!!!! I posted that verse to you last night in a message, set my phone down and realized it didn’t send so I reposted it this morning to you I can’t believe it…. well I can believe it and I think I must have gotten that scripture verse from a church email I just can’t put my finger on it right now

I so pray for the anguish caused by the strife. I’m sad to say it is just the latest version of centuries of strife. it just plain sucks….
“Dear Friends,

Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.Philippians 4:6”

The other scripture that came up twice today was 2nd Peter: 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Yup…. one of those days….

Email – repeat scripture #4

OK – been a pensive few days…  now I have another scriptures which I ran into repeatedly from different places between last night and now – hmmm….  after the third time I saw this one (Matthew 5) I had to email…

let your light shine before others  and don’t put the light under the bushel basket – yeah… I am not putting any light of mine away….

15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lamp stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”   –Matthew 5:14-16 (NRSV)

You know – it is the random spots where God naturally comes up in conversation which make me smile – where I didn’t force the conversation – yeah…  this morning at the food pantry when I was dropping off stuff a lady down on her luck and I got to talk about her faith and mine – in front of about 10 people in line – very natural, not forced…

Yesterday morning I stopped to trash pick a shovel and plastic bin and had a good conversation about vacation bible school and how God sees things vs us – mountains into molehills with a gentleman who was a climber….

Yeah – organic and not flashy – nice….  and not under a bushel basket…..

Email – repeat scripture #5

Well today’s duplicate scripture (after the four duplicated/triplicated ones earlier this week) is Psalm 121. I am not making this up.
I was thinking about that last night from the Sound of Music, when Mother Superior says it to Maria…. I googled the line, found the psalm and texted it to pj.  …..  then this morning that little devotion book, I found in the church closet, I opened to a page and there it was, seriously not making this up (photo attached)….. I guess a noble woman is supposed to hide scripture away in her heart, so forgive me for spilling the beans (there are just 6 of you on this email).

Of course I think it is cool that Maria says, ” when God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window….” this book is called “Window to God”, shhhh…. so cool…..
Thanks God, you are so cool!!!!

Psalm 121
A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip –
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you –
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm –
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and for evermore.

psalm 121
