Today I am thankful for:
My super awesome bible app on my phone, and the fact that I have the ability to have an iPhone.
Even though the word is literally right at my fingertips almost every minute of everyday, I still fail at bringing it into my life each day. I’m really hoping that this thirty day thankfulness challenge through scripture will change that and encourage me to make the amazing words of the bible be more a part of my daily life.
This app really is awesome, and every time I open it up, I am reminded of it. There are countless bible versions you can choose from, bible reading plans you can subscribe to, notes you can add, different colors of text highlighting, and it is super easy to share a passage, or copy and paste.
The first verse on our list is Psalms 95:1-7 (KJV). I will mark in bold the words that are meaningful to me.
“O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,”
To me, this passage is speaking of and encouraging us to worship- to bow down, kneel, make a joyful noise, sing, rejoice, and with thanks come before our creator, our shepard, the one who made all and wishes to guide his flock- if only we will listen to his voice.
What does this passage mean to you? What are you thankful for today?
