Today’s rather awesome selection was submitted by a woman named Emily (owner of the foot to the right). I thought I’d share her submission in its entirety:
So, I wake up each morning and I look forward to reading these devotionals. They are quick encouragement for my soul to kick start my day. 🙂 You had asked for us to sent you our favorite verse, and yes, it is really hard to think of ONE favorite because it depends on what I am going through in life!
However, there is one that is so near and dear to my heart that I got it tattooed on my foot! The reason why I made such a permanent decision on my body, is that the phrase “apart from Him I can do nothing” sums up my testimony! I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 17 and ever since, God has used this ‘thorn in my side’ to remind me apart from Him I can do nothing! It’s been amazing the conversations a tattoo will start, and how it’s even better when I get to use it to share Gods story of strength and grace and hope for life!!
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
Have a blessed day! God uses you to impact lives, keep doing what you are doing:-)
Thanks so much for sharing this, Emily! You (and your foot) are absolutely right: without Jesus we can’t do squat.
Don’t take a step anywhere in this world without Jesus. Remain in him every single moment of every single day. There’s no other way to live.
