VERSE-O-RAMA Day 2

Yesterday, we kicked off VERSE-0-RAMA 2017. I shared my favorite verse and then asked y’all to share yours.

Here’s a great little verse to start off the day passed along by one of our visitors. Pray through it right now and then repeat it any time you feel the least bit stressed, depressed, angry and/or freaked out.

Change your computer password to your favorite Scripture reference. Then every time you sign in recite the verse until it’s stuck deep inside your brain. It may sound dumb but it works.

The first time I tried it, I went with 1Thess5:16, which says . . .

OT Week: ♥

We continue OLD TESTAMENT WEEK here on GUWG with a prayer from David, whom God called a “man after my own heart.” Pray through each precious word with all YOUR heart.

I will exalt you, Lord,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down into the pit.

Grumbling Antidote #1: Thankfulness

Yesterday, we officially kicked off NO GRUMBLING WEEK 2017 here on GUWG.

We started off with a pair of Bible verses that make it clear that grumbling, whining and complaining are bad things. We then issued a challenge: we asked all of our grumble-prone readers to (1) pinch themselves every time they feel a grumble coming on and instead (2) recite one of the verses.

SPIRIT WEEK: Joy

It’s SPIRIT WEEK 2017 here on GUWG. For the next few days, we’ll be taking a closer look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: JOY.

What exactly is joy? Joy isn’t an emotion. It isn’t happiness. It isn’t pleasure. It’s waaaaay deeper than that.

Joy comes from God. It’s available 24/7, no matter the circumstances.

Jesus’ First Miracle

We continue our 40-day journey deeeep into the of Jesus.

Here we discussed Jesus’ first words. Today’s topic: Jesus’ first miracle.

Jesus, his mom and the disciples were invited to a wedding. Weddings were an even bigger production back then, lasting up to an entire week.

The drama starts:

Rejoice! Repeat.

Rejoice in the Lord always!
I will say it again, rejoice!
(Philippians 4:4)

Today’s verse is pretty simple.

What are we supposed to do?

Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.
Rejoice! Repeat.

When are we supposed to do it?

Always!

REJOICE!
