embarking on a journey

Years ago I memorized Hebrews 4:12 that says, “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” It’s one of my all time favorite verses to quote, because it’s so powerful.

I absolutely LOVE that God’s word is not just a bunch of words in an old book. It’s alive. It’s active. It’s sharp, like a sword. It has the ability to penetrate into the depths of our life and root out everything that’s ugly and broken. It’s able to unveil the hidden potential that God placed within us before we were born and reveal it to the light for us and the whole world to see and enjoy.

When I was in college a very well respected professor lovingly referred to as “Professor McGee” said something to me that has always stuck in my heart as so profound and true.

“The Word of God is an ocean that children can wade in and men can drown in.” Professor McGee

We are all about to embark on a journey of discovery that is God-led and God-directed. And every single one of our journey’s will be God-unique, not one even close to another. It’s an adventure I personally can’t wait to take, and one I look forward to hearing about from you!

“Lord, we submit our hearts and lives to you as we delve into the mysteries found in your Holy Word!”
