PostSubject: Felt so alive today!   Sun Aug 03, 2008 7:01 am

Wow. I have been having such a great day that I felt like I had to share.

So this morning I started with my little routine of going through my stack of Bible verse flashcards. It helps me memorize them. And I was struck at how cohesive and awesome God's word is. I had a card for an Old Testament verse and one for a New Testament verse and they all scream the greatness of the same God, who is the same holy, great, powerful, forgiving God that created the world and has been and always be the one who holds us all together.

And then I felt like I experienced a little miracle. It may sound weird, but here's what happened. This darned poster I have in my room keeps falling down. It's been driving me nuts. And it fell down AGAIN today. And then I got this idea, you know the ones where you can tell the Holy Spirit is saying GUESS WHAT I'VE GOT A GREAT IDEA FOR YOU TODAY! I decided to sit down, pull out my sketchbook, and start writing down my favorite four Bible verses in some nice marker colors. So now I have four medium sized posters with God's word on them all prepared to stay on my wall.

And THEN another random miracle occured to me. I was thumbing through Outcast, the latest warriors book, not really paying it much attention and just trying to absorb the main ideas when one word popped off the page. ALIVE. I blinked and tried to read on. It popped at me again, just ALIVE. Then a Casting Crowns song that I've only heard once or twice started to run through my head.... the word is ALIVE and it cuts like a sword through the darkness something something... now what were those lyrics? I was getting on the computer and decided to look up the song on Youtube. I really felt the truth of that song today. God's word is His living, breathing instrument to speak to His people! Is this not exciting?!

I just felt compelled to share with you guys. I hope this refreshes your heart as much as it did mine. ^^ Here's the song! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukMix2pUpPo

Looking out from His throne
the Father of light and of men
chose to make Himself known
and show us the way back to Him

speaking wisdom and truth
into the hearts
of peasants and kings
He began to unveil
the Word that would change the course of all things

with eyes wide open,
all would see

the Word is alive
and it cuts like a sword through the darkness
with a message of life to the hopeless
and afraid
breathing life into all who believe

the Word is alive
and the world and its glories will fade
but His truth it will not pass away
it remains
yesterday and forever the same
the Word is alive

simple strokes on a page
eternity's secrets revealed
carried on from age to age
it speaks truth to us even still

and as the rain falls from heaven
and feeds the earth before it returns,
Lord let your word fall on us
and bring forth the fruit You deserve

with eyes wide open
let us see

the Word is alive
and it cuts like a sword through the darkness
with a message of life to the hopeless
and afraid
breathing life into all who believe

the Word is alive
and the world and its glories will fade
but His truth it will not pass away
it remains
yesterday and forever the same
the Word is alive

"The Bible was inscribed over a period of 2000 years,
in times of war and in days of peace,
by kings, physicians, tax collectors, farmers, fishermen, singers and shepherds.
The marvel is that a library so perfectly cohesive could have been
produced by such a diverse crowd over a period of time which staggers the imagination.
Jesus is its grand subject, our good is its design, and the glory of God is its end..."

the Word is alive
and it cuts like a sword through the darkness
with a message of life to the hopeless
and afraid
breathing life into all who believe

the Word is alive
and the world and its glories will fade
but His truth it will not pass away
it remains yesterday and forever the same
the Word is alive

HIS WORD IS ALIVE!

May you be blessed today. ^^
