ABC's of the Word


Pam at Grey Like Snuffie hosts the ABC's of the Word each week. I missed last week due to no internet access, so I'm moving on this week to the letter:



I chose the word:

DELIVER

and the verse I chose is:

Turn, O LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love....Psalm 6:4

I chose this verse because this is exactly what God has done for me. I was far from Him--so, so far away. And yet, He still loved me--always loving me, watching me, protecting me, providing for me.

And then the greatest gift of all........He turned to me and delivered me--as if I were a newborn baby--a fresh start, a new life, a new creation in Him.

By delivering me in this way, He has saved me--not only from others who were harming me, but also from myself--

DEAD TO MYSELF, ALIVE IN CHRIST




Be sure and visit Pam to see what everyone has chosen for the letter "D" this week!!

Your verse struck me as very bittersweet. I've prayed all week for those NFL football players and friends who were lost in the Gulf of Mexico. No, I don't know them but they have parents and perhaps wives and children and this is such a sad time for them.

I pray the angels delivered the men to Heaven.
