  1. Hi, everyone! I'm so delighted to be a part of this community. I can't wait to connect with all of you! Anyone in need of a good reminder of His love right now? I know I do.. My favorite verse from here is Job 34:19 – “He doesn't care how great a person may be, and he pays no more attention to the rich than to the poor. He made them all.” What's yours? 1. Ephesians 2:4-5 – “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's grace that you have been saved!)” 2. Psalm 86:15 – “But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.” 3. John 3:16 – “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” 4. Romans 5:8 – “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” 5. Psalm 147:3 – “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.” 6. Psalm 103:8 – “The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.” 7. 1 John 4:19 – “We love each other because he loved us first.” 8. Isaiah 53:5 – “But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.” 9. Psalm 103:13 – “The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” 10. Lamentations 3:22-23 – “The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” 11. 1 Peter 5:6-7 – “So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 12. 1 John 3:1 – “See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don't recognize that we are God's children because they don't know him.” 13. 1 John 4:10 – “This is real love--not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 14. Job 34:19 – “He doesn't care how great a person may be, and he pays no more attention to the rich than to the poor. He made them all.” 15. Zephaniah 3:17 – “For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs." ________________________________ www.girlandtheword.com
  2. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
  3. Hi, I made a video on 16 bible verses related to God's Goodness towards fellow believers. These verses have been ones I've been meditating on to believe God for my future. It can be a struggle sometimes to believe God when you don't see the things you want in your life, to be honest. I know I've been tempted to feel disappointed or like God is not paying attention to my prayers. This video encourages me to fight the fight of faith and rest in His promises towards me. I hope it encourages you all as well! With love,
  4. Hello Friends! Friday's article has just gone up for some good reading on bible verses calling us to be disciples of Jesus. My husband and I write these articles because we are pursuing our calling to discipleship! We hope to bring you articles that are not only useful but can easily be shared with others. So come check out our newest article and website, we have added some more things to it that I think you will enjoy! Be Blessed, Nick & Leah Co-founders of Abide and Seek 7 Verses That Call Us To Be Disciples Of Jesus Throughout the New Testament, you will find ordinary and unlikely people who have been called to be Jesus’s Disciples. Andrew and Peter were fishermen who were uneducated and consider low in status, Matthew was a tax collector, which in those days was like you admitting you were a crook. Jesus took these men and created some of his first disciples. So what does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus and how can scripture give us a better understanding of this? Scripture has allowed us to read about Jesus, God’s only son who was sent to us so we could be forgiven for our sins. To lay down His life so we would someday be able to walk alongside God once again. While Jesus was alive, he stood as a living example of what God has always intended us to be, loving, caring, abiding, devoted and faithful children of God. Once we understand and give our life over to Jesus, we are not only considered followers of Jesus Christ but are expected to spread the gospel and disciple to others. We can do this by sharing our testimonies, inspiring scripture, past experiences, helping others, and most importantly loving others unconditionally as Jesus did. I have selected 7 bible verses that I feel call us to be disciples of Jesus. 7 Bible Verses That Call Us To Be Disciples Of Jesus 1. John 15:18-19 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.” These two verses cannot be truer and something Christians experience every day. Jesus was the most wonderful man that could have walk this earth, yet he was greatly hated and persecuted. Yet he knew many would not accept what he had to say or what he had to offer to God’s people. We too as Christians should not expect anything less than the same reactions from some individuals we share the gospel with, but that is okay. We still push on and persevere with what we know is true in our hearts and continue to share the Word with others. 2. Matthew 28:19-20 “ Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” The Bible contains some scripture that has layers that need to be deciphered and then there are verses like Matthew 28:19-20. These two verses make it clear what we should do as disciples. That we should go out and spread the Gospel, baptize, and teach. And the most important part of these verses is that Jesus tells his disciples that he is always with them. We as Christians need to remember this when we are teaching or sharing our relationship with Jesus. This can be one of the hardest expectations Jesus has for us but the most impactful way to share the word. 3. John 21:17 “The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:17 is such a great verse! Jesus refers to himself as our shepherd and we are his sheep. He is the one that is guiding us as a shepherd does with his flock. In this verse, Jesus asked Peter, one of his disciples to “feed ” his sheep after repeatedly asking Peter if he loves him. Jesus asks this because he knows if Peter truly loves him, even once Jesus is no longer physically here with his disciples, that he will continue to feed the knowledge of God through the spreading of the gospel. If we truly love Jesus and abide by his teachings then we too should feed his sheep. 4. Matthew 4:19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” This is where Jesus first meets Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew who were both fishermen. At this point, they didn’t know Jesus but He tells them if they follow him they will fish for people. I am sure at first they were confused as to what this meant, but they followed him. We may have a feeling overcome us to look into what following Jesus means and that feeling maybe confusing as well. But that curiosity should be pursued, just as Peter and Andrew did. Jesus said,”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” You may never know what lies beyond the door if you are not willing to at least knock. 5. John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” I love analogies and so did Jesus! When Jesus was sent down to us, the world was corrupt, dark and wicked once again. He was sent here to be that light he is referring to, to break the pattern of darkness that God’s people became accustomed to. If we understand and follow Jesus’s teachings as God wanted us to do, we won’t be overcome by the darkness in this world. That light will also attract those who are lost in the dark and seek freedom from their sin. So by becoming disciples of Jesus, we can shine the light to all those who are in the dark! 6. 2 Timothy 2:2-3 “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.” When we become disciples of Jesus we are expected to not only grow in our faith but to extend that knowledge to others. Here we read 2 Timothy 2:2-3 where Paul writes to Timothy to continue his exact teachings to others so they too can spread the Gospel.Paul knows the suffering that has come along with his following in Jesus Christ and he compares himself to a good soldier, one who obeys all Jesus has taught him. Paul also knows that this journey for Timothy will be pleasing but suffering also lied up ahead of him. 7. John 12:26 “ Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” This is such a powerful verse and a great verse to end with on the topic of discipleship! Those of us who will follow Jesus and minister to him by following his teachings will then be considered worthy in the eyes of God. In turn, He will honor us. Discipleship is something we are called to do when we decide to follow Jesus. It will be a challenging journey but the fact that we have the opportunity to share the most important and hope-filled news with those all around us is exhilarating! We truly have the ability to change someone’s life! So if you believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ was sent and died for us, you too have the ability to spread the word and disciple to others!!
  5. ello, Friends and Happy New Year! What better way to celebrate the first day of 2018 but with a fresh, new outlook on what is yet to come?! We have published an article just for today to get you all inspired for the next 364 days! Come check out Abide and Seek's newest article and start your year off with peace, love, and hope! Be Blessed, Nick & Leah Lincoln Co-founders of Abide and Seek 7 Awesome Bible Verses for the New Year Another year has passed us by and 2018 is here! It’s a new year and time for new and exciting things. These 7 verses will help you kick off the new year in a powerful way. Every year millions of people watch the ball drop in times square with excitement and anticipation. The new year can be an opportunity for new beginnings or maybe even renewal. We often hear everyone we know talking about their resolutions for the new year. Though many start the new year with exciting goals in mind, very few are still on track by the end of the first month. So what does it take to really do something new? Something unexpected? Some spectacular and awesome? If we want to really see true newness and change in our lives this year, it takes starting with the only one who can make something out of absolutely nothing. The one who is making all things new. And that is Jesus Christ. These 7 verses will help you enter into 2018 with a new focus and commitment to a powerful abundant life in Jesus Christ! 7 Awesome Bible Verses for the New Year 1. Live in Christ – 2 Corinthians 5: 17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” I absolutely love this piece scripture. Every time I see it I am just filled with an overwhelming excitement and joy. So often life weighs us down and we forget that we are no longer enslaved to the world. The old is gone the new is here! I chose this scripture to be first because this is where newness begins, with being in Christ. It is through him that we can begin a new fruitful and abundant life. It’s important that we remember this coming into the new year, no matter what resolutions we have to change our habits or physical activity, all goodness, joy, contentment, and completeness flows from one source, the true spring of living water, Jesus Christ. 2. Praise God – 1 Peter 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” This new year as we embark on true life change, we should get ourselves into a truly humble position and start off the year with a spirit of praise. Too often we are so quick to try to throw out the past and move onto the new year with the hope that this year will be better. The problem with this mindset is we often focus too much on the failures and not enough on the victories. It is important that we start the new year by praising God for all the amazing victories he has delivered us in 2017. If you’re having a hard time coming up with said victories, a good place to start is by praising him for the ultimate victory that you have received in Christ. One of the greatest things you can do in faith is praise God not only for the victories we have received in Jesus name but also for all the victories we are about to receive and will receive in the future. With this mindset, we can really dive into 2018 excited and ready to glorify God to the fullest in this new year. 3. Be New – Ephesians 4:22-24 “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” The first scripture we looked at encouraged us to realize that we truly are a new creation. This one encourages us to not only realize that we are new but to keep ourselves from slipping back into the old. We all live in a fallen world, until the end when Jesus comes and makes all things new. For now, we have to live in Him and not conform to our old lives. This can be difficult to do when we are told to live in a way that contradicts the way everyone around us is living. This scripture tells us that it’s not enough to just say we are done with our old lives but we need to put them off and put on the new life. Life is about action, not words. It’s not enough to tell yourself you’re done with the old but you have to take action and be done with it. For some of us, this means removing ourselves, even if its only for a short time, from situations that encourage us to put on our old selves. It may be hard to remove ourselves from these situations altogether. But if we are determined to see real life change it sometimes takes drastic measures… if your right-hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. The new is here it’s time to step into this newness and be transformed into the beautiful creation you were intended to be. 4. Give Control To God – Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Above all coming into the new year, we need to let go and give it all up to God. He is the only one who knows all things and what is best for us. It can be hard in some situations to really let go of control. But this is one of the most crucial aspects of our relationship with Jesus Christ. Not only does he know the plans he has for us and not only are those plans good, but scripture says the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. The least God can do is greater than the most we can do! We need to keep this in mind this year because it’s easy for us to start gaining momentum when we are living in Christ and just as quickly start to think that we deserve any of the credit. This takes us back to remember to give God the glory. Above all this reminds us who is really sitting on the throne and who deserves all of the credit. God knows all things and he is for you, this year show him you believe that by letting go and laying all you have at his feet. 5. Live For The Moment – James 4:13-15 “Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” With a new year on the rise, it’s easy to start looking ahead and planning for the future. We need to remember that no time is guaranteed to us. Every breath we take is a gift from our heavenly father and should be treated in such a way. One of the greatest resolutions we can make coming into the new year is to be conscious of every moment and to use each moment to glorify God. For most of us when we think of glorifying God we think of religious things. But we can glorify God through everything we do when we intentionally do it with Him in mind. If we honestly give every moment up to God and focus on glorifying him it will keep us from stumbling and lead us to produce good fruit. Let’s make this year the year where we all truly decided to be living sacrifices, surrendering our every thought, move and care to our faithful creator. 6. Allow Growth – Hebrews 12:10-11 “They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” This new year should not only be a year of glorifying God with all we do, but also a year of growth in Him. Discipline is a necessary aspect of the growth process. The scripture above speaks of how our heavenly Father disciplines us as spiritual children, just as how earthly fathers disciplined us when we were physically children. This year, every time we face trials of many kinds, we need to rejoice and stay focused on the outcome not the pain of the process. We know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love him. So as we face moments of God’s discipline this year, focus on the strength you will have when you persevere. Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because having stood the test that person will receive the crown of life the Lord has promised to those who love him. This brings me to the seventh scripture for the new year. Above all this year we need to stay focused on that crown and the promise of eternal life! 7. Be Heaven Minded – Revelation 21:5 “He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true. He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty, I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.” This new year as we focus on newness in Christ Jesus, we should always have our eyes fixed on the ultimate newness. When we fix our eyes on heaven and the glories to be revealed, it helps keep us strong as we endure trials and allows us to make each moment impactful for the kingdom. Jesus said, “ I am making everything new!” This statement is not only exciting, as we look forward to a new heaven and a new earth, but also encourages us to not hold on to any earthly thing. We need to remember that nothing here lasts forever, everything is going away. Though this thought may bring sadness to some, it should most of all encourage us to not be pulled into the desires of the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. Victory is ours through Jesus Christ. Through his blood on the cross and resurrection from the dead, we are set free from the corruption of the world and are children of God. This year let us focus on being His children and fix our eyes on the inheritance he has prepared for us. What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him! With 2017 in the rearview it’s time for us to lay it to rest, not forgetting the pain but growing from it and praising God for every moment. As we move into 2018 it’s time to allow God to breathe new life into dead places and give us a renewed steadfast spirit. This year will be the year where we see real life change, not only in ourselves but in the people around us because this will be the year we decide to give it all up to the only one who is making all things new, Jesus Christ!
  6. Hi, I just really need someone to explain this Bible verse to me: Proverbs 22:3 I have a Bible app on my phone and everyday, I get daily verses. It's usually random, however, I am worried because this particular verse keeps appearing as my daily verse and I don't know how to interpret it. I will pray to God for clarity because I get the feeling, he is trying to tell me something. *ps sorry if it all seems a bit rushed but I am at work and had to quickly write this on my phone Oh and thanks in advance!
  7. Hello! I am new to this forum - I am not a new Christian, but I am finding out how little I actually know about the Bible and am trying to seek God and figure out what it really means to have faith and trust God. I deal with quite a bit of anxiety and hypochondria, and so much of this renewed interest is in the effort to clear out this anxiety and remove these fears/learn from this experience whatever it is I am supposed to learn! I am hoping people can help me find some Bible verses. I find myself, when reading certain stories or passages of the Bible that are directed to a particular person, feeling like the message was meant for that person, and doesn't necessarily apply to me. One example is Joshua 1:9 - when God is telling Joshua not to be afraid because He is with him wherever he goes, I feel like my automatic response is that God was with Joshua, but that doesn't mean He is with me, or feels the same about me. Can anyone help me here with suggestions of stories or verses that can help reconcile this disconnect in my head? In theory I know that God loves me, but I do struggle with my worthiness and I think if I could find some scriptures to back this up, it would be helpful!! Thanks!!!
