Statement of Purpose

"Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart." (Psalm 119:2)

Over and over again, God commands us to study and meditate on His word.  I just wanted a place to be able to share what the Lord shows me as I endeavor to dig deeper into His word and discover His plan for my life...and try to be a blessing to some of my friends out there!

A "project" (if you could call it that) that I am working on over time right now, is to take one verse from Psalm 119 each week, and let that be the "theme" verse for the week...almost like a mantra.  I try to just take that one short verse and memorize it (easy enough for these verses!), study it, and meditate upon it.  If I find my mind needing something positive to dwell on, that verse of the week is there to pull up and meditate upon even more.  One might think that it wouldn't take very long to pull everything out of these short verses that can be discovered.  However, this is one of the amazing aspects of God's Word - there is ALWAYS something more to be discovered!  I have found that, as I meditate on a certain verse for a few days, and ask God to show me what HE wants me to learn from it, God will reveal truth and application for my life.  I will be the first to admit that I am not perfect, and there have been times when I have not been as diligent as I should have been about this project; however, God continues to bring it back to my attention and bless me as I meditate on His word!
