my bible

this is my bible. and i believe every single word of it. 
i believe it's either all true or none of it's true. 
there are parts that comfort me when i'm discouraged,
words that give me peace when i am afraid,
promises that inspire me, encourage me, instruct me, guide me.
there are parts that disturb me, and make me sad for this world.
there are stories that break my heart and make me pray harder. 

this is my bible. i believe all of it is true, and alive, and real. 

...i need to remind myself of this from time to time. 

just something to think about...


It's news I'm most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message 
of God's powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts him, 
starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else! 
God's way of putting people right shows up in the acts of faith, 
confirming what Scripture has said all along: 
"The person in right standing before God by trusting him really lives."
Romans 1:16 MSG

"If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree 
to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, 
they are conceited and understand nothing. 
They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels 
about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, 
evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, 
who have been robbed of the truth and who think 
that godliness is a means to financial gain."
1 Timothy 6:3-5 NIV
