And thank you Bee for being there for not only me but for all of us here on the team! So glad you are feeling better!

Michelle, SP has blessed me in ways that has nothing to do with my weight loss journey. I have been so lifted here and met some many wonderful children of God, that if I was at my goal weight,I would still come here just to share God's Word!
Welcome to the team!

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

May God richly bless you!

In Jesus Name
Amen

I feel the very same way, Michelle. I had no idea what an impact the body of believers here on SparkPeople would have upon my life when I found this place to help me get a healthier body. God is SO good!!

Isn't it wonderful how God brings things to our spirit and how he confirms things? I am so glad I was able to be used of God to help you to understand His word.

Thank you for the time you spend contemplating and being before the Lord to bring us, just what the Lord needs for us to hear this week. I'll write this verse out, and keep it on my heart this week.

I have to quickly say, (if I can ever be quick!) that on my way home yesterday, I had my ipod shuffle on, and a chapter from, I beleive it was Proverbs?, played. I had to smile when I realized it was the same chapter that held the verse you brought last week about iron sharpening iron! I just had to smile and say thank you Lord! I knew it was no coincidence He brought that same passage to me once again, as I had never heard that verse before I read your post last week. It reminds me of how we need to continue to support, encourage and pray for one another, and how SP has become a tool for us to do that each day! Thank you again for your commitment Greg!

I sure needed this post today. Thanks so much.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. (One Day at a Time)

Thank you so much for posting this scripture, Greg. It always amazes me that I can read a part of the Bible one day and one thing will pop out at me. Then another day, or when singled out as you have here, it hits me in such a different way.

You serve us well with your posts, dear Greg.

And when Peter did focus on Jesus, he was able to accomplish the impossible! That's what I'm counting on. Thank you, Brother Greg, for feeding His sheep (ME!!) so well!!

Greg, thank you for that scripture. Another verse I have held on to many times when facing fear is II Tim 1:7 For God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. I can always know He is in control!

Hello and praise the Lord, my sisters and brothers in Christ
Welcome to this weeks memory verse. I pray that you will be edified and that it will bless your spirit.

Father God, I pray that You teach through your humble servant today so that Your flock my be feed.
In Jesus Name
Amen

Today's Word comes from Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

I was doing my Bible in a year reading program and I have been praying on what word to use for the week's verse, and as I was reading,the Holy Spirit thrust this verse out at me.
When we are in fear of something or are anxious about something, our souls are far from being peaceful. We are upset, out of sorts or in turmoil. We are like a stormy ocean, the waves of our despair rocking us to and fro. But remember in Mark 4:39 when Jesus calmed the seas for the 12 apostles:

"Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm."

Jesus can and will calm the rough seas that you are going through in your life right now.With a word He calmed the seas and that word was Peace! The apostle did not have their minds on Jesus in that storm. They worried about if they were going to drown or not. But if they had remembered Gods Word through Isaiah and kept their minds and hearts focused on Christ, then they could have told those seas to be calm in Jesus' Name! and the seas would have been at peace. Perfect peace comes from trusting in God and letting your heart and soul rest on His Promises. Jesus is the Prince of Peace(Isa9:6)and if we are to have peace in our lives we have to keep our minds on Him and we when do that, there is no storm in our lives that can rock us!

Is your mind stayed on Christ? Do you truly trust in God or do you begin to doubt Him when things are getting rough. When things are looking grim, remember this memory verse. Write it down somewhere so you can look at through out the day and remember to trust in God and lean on His perfect peace.
God Bless you
In Jesus Name
Greg
