This is a meme I made from a picture of the pond near our house. God has given us so much beauty to enjoy!
Treasure Tuesday (Sharing treasure from God’s word)
Whoever quarries stones may be injured by them; whoever splits logs may be endangered by them. If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but skill will bring success. ~Ecclesiastes 10:9-10 (NIV)
We know “the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword.” ~Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
God’s word is our ax that helps us meet the world head on. Its sharpness will give us the strength we need to “quarry stones” and “split logs” without being fatally hurt by them.
The more skill we have in handling God’s word, the more we can combat the things that threaten to destroy our joy. And truly rejoice!
The sound of silence can be deafening and devastating. Silence is not always golden. Sometimes it indicates a putrefying morality, a fear to speak.
Remember: A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver. ~Proverbs 25:11
Let's speak and *write* with boldness.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. ~2 Timothy 1:7
I found this among my father’s pictures. As many know, my In the Shadow of the Cedar series was inspired by my mother and father. In the third book, Thunder’s Shadow, Michael and Dan will be in the military during World War II. Lord willing, the book will be published in July, 2014.
