I Love This


"Be brave.
Be strong.
Don't give up.
Expect God to get here soon."

Sometimes I really like how the Message translation brings out the Word. This is one of those times! Thanks for sharing it.

Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. There are certain verses that the Message phrases with such poignancy. This is one of them

i LOVE that too. I've been shying away from the message for a long time... maybe it's time to give it a chance ;)

There is something about these words that just jump out and hold out hope to us. I love the way you live with expectation. Hosea 12:6 - Look to Him and expect HIM to do much in your life. He is! He is!

I really want to get a Message Bible. I love the translation, especially when I read my beloved NASB and then the Message. It just makes sense.

This is a great verse. Perfect for memorizing with the kids.

I've read your last few posts and understand completely where you are coming from. I sometimes struggle with consistentcy in my quiet times or sometimes I have a hard time retaining what I read. Thank you for discussing this on your blog.
