Bible Verse Monday


Karen over at Karen's Ramblings is starting something new. She's hosting Bible Verse Monday. You can find out more information by clicking here.

The Bible verse I have chosen to memorize this week is:
Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

I quoted this Bible verse to a blogger friend last week and ever since, it has been popping into my life. It has been quoted more than a dozen times in the book I'm presently reading and I've come upon it in my everyday life.

I've chosen this verse because I believe that God is sending me a message through it - reminding me that things change and that His Hand is in everything that happens upon the Earth.

Something that may change in the near future has been bothering me. I have asked God to keep His Hand in it. Is this His way of letting me know that He is the all powerful Father; that He is in control? I believe so. So, in order to follow what I believe in, I must stop worrying - Let Go and Let God!

If you would like to take part in Bible Verse Monday, be sure to follow the link to Karen's blog to find out more.

  2. Yes, He is in control. Odd that the verse has been on both of our minds.

    Hope you will consider participating in Bible Verse Monday.

    Blessings for a great week.

  3. Thank you Mary for taking part. I do pray that the issue you mentioned that may change in the near future, would have God's hand truly in it. May his grace abide over you and all concerned in this. I do love this verse as well, it's a wonderful reminder when we are going through changes.

  5. This is one of my all time favorite verses. I have cross-stitched it on a sampler that hangs in my hallway. I firmly believe that if this verse is popping up so many times, it is truly meant for you to take comfort from right now...

    That you for your prayers and kind words of support. I appreciate it. I have always had a hard time with change, but this one would be very hard to cope with.

    Blessings for a great week.

  14. Our guest minister yesterday preached on letting go and letting God take control. Sometimes it's hard but in the end, it actually makes things easier.
    Thanks for stopping by to visit me!

  15. Maria,

    Thank you for your prayers. I will be a week or so before this situation has a conclusion, possibly longer. However, God is in His heaven and completely in control.

    Yes, things are definitely easier when we know that God is in control.
