::My Life Verse::

I have been praying in earnest for the Lord to give life verses for my boys.
My daughter has always had a life verse that we have spoken over her.
As it happens so often with us mama's, we think of ourselves last.
Well, it's time for me to have a life verse.
A promise to stand on and to work toward, having my identity firmly rooted in Christ.
For the Lord to tell me what to BE.
So often I focus on what I'm doing in the Lord, that I forget to BE in the Lord.
As I have been praying about this, He delivered a verse and a message.
So here is my life verse.

Psalm 27:7-8
"Hear my voice when I call, O Lord;
Be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, Seek His face!
Your face Lord, I will seek."

So simple isn't it, but how easily we forget.

The Lord also spoke something very interesting to me.
The message is that if He tells me who I am to BE, will I then stop seeking Him?
Am I content to just go with it? Can I accept that what I am to BE can change from day to day?
Very interesting stuff to pray about.

Do you have a life verse?

Have a blessed day, Tami


  1. Several years ago the Lord also gave me life verses for our children. They have become like God's promises to me. Despite the direction(s) we sometimes see our children going, I stand on those promises, aka life verses. They have brought much comfort when our children endure times of trials or seasons of poor decission making. These verses have also been a source of great joy as we see positive progress in our chidlren.

  2. So-very-beautiful verse. {so-very-precious you}. xo

  3. I loved this post. Yes, a lot to think about there!
    It has been a VERY LONG time since I've stopped by. My blogging (reading and writing) time has suffered because of so many circumstances, but I'm glad I checked in here tonight!
    And I don't know that I have a "Life Verse." It's a nice thought.
