What a blessing!

I feel so blessed to have access to God's Word. Usually when I read the Bible, I cry tears of joy because it speaks so dearly to my heart. I see where I have been, where I am going and where I need to be. It's our owners manual - our instruction guide to life.

While reading a message board this morning, I found the most incredible verse! I am going to adopt this verse as my new favorite verse. It verifies in my spirit what I know about scrapbooking and how God is calling me to use it for His glory. After all, it's all about Him. We're just here to praise and worship Him. In the grand scheme of things, that's all that matters and will forever matter.

Isn't this verse awesome for scrapbookers?

Write down for the coming generation what the LORD has done, so that people not yet born will praise him.
Psalm 102:18
(GNT - Good News Translation)

I'm gonna do it! I feel so blessed to have found that verse!! Wow! Praise the Lord for His word and for scrapbooking.

great verse! says exactly what I want to do, just have to get the time to do it!

speaking of worship...we're studying Exodus in our bible study, and during our lecture the other day the leader said this something along these lines: we are created for worship. we cannot not worship. we are always worshipping something and when we are not worshipping, we are doing something less than we were created for!

good stuff, isn't it? I need to post that on my blog, it's just sooo good!

Wow...what a perfect verse...and it blessed me today too. God has been so gracious to me -- and I want to make sure future generations are clear about those blessings and graciousness...and particularly clear that I KNEW how very blessed I was.

Love ya make me smile and make my heart glad.

Wow! I feel the same way about God's word. I've been reading in Psalm and writing down verses to use in a scripture scrapbook for my coffee table. I already have the scrapbook setting out now I just have to get busy making the pages. I love this verse. Thanks for sharing. I love reading your blog and about your spiritual walk.

Thanks for all your sweet comments! Christina - one of my favorite songs is called "I Was Created To Make Your Praise Glorious" - I truly believe that. God bless you all!

That is an awesome verse!! I live in Hendersonville. I have met you at Scrap It once. I just happened upon your blog a few days ago. I'm usually a lurker but had to post on this. God is good. I love the verse about writing his word in our doorways too. I have done several layouts about what I believe in and my testimony for my kids. Thanks for blogging about this.
