Scripture Sabbath Challenge
Throughout the scriptures, we find the command to study, to meditate, to teach, the words found in the scriptures.There is also a day set apart as a day to gather together and worship our God.
Once a week, on your day of worship, whenever it is, share a scripture with your fellow bloggers. It can be one you’ve been studying for a while, one you’ve just rediscovered, an old favorite, etc.
Include the tag and/or category “Scripture Sabbath” in your post, so we can all share in what has made an impact on your life this week.
And, if you’re willing, come back here and share your post link in the comments, either on this page or any of my Scripture Sabbath posts.
My Scripture – Alma 34:38
“That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.”
I found this verse of scripture from the Book of Mormon a couple of weeks ago during my study about gratitude. It has been especially helpful this past week.
For three days following Christmas, rain fell in torrents practically nonstop. My family lives on the Arkansas River, and it rose quickly, faster and farther than anyone expected. The water completely covered my grandparents’ property, where we live, as well as the neighbor’s property on the west side of the creek near us, and even began to creep up the property on the hill across the road. The water even came up onto the porch.
But by the grace of God, the water did not rise high enough to come into the house! From January 30 until yesterday, we were completely surrounded by water.
I praised God every day that He held back the water from entering our home. He kept us safe. And now we are able to get back out into town to get what we need. We just have a lot of mud in the yard.
How has God blessed you this week?
