This Week's WORD

Hey, I just came up with an idea!

Yes, having an idea is an exciting event for me. *grin*

As you may know by now, I am in a read-through-the-Bible-in-one-year program right now, and am presently reading through Job. There was a passage this week that stood out to me and I decided I wanted to share it with you today. Then I got my idea...
Each week I am going to watch for a WORD that grabs me and on Friday I'm going to share it with you. And I'm going to call it "This Week's WORD." (Obviously! That's why I titled my post as I did...)
I don't necessarily intend to make this a meme, or a blog carnival, or whatever it would be if you decided to post a weekly WORD. But feel free to join in and share a part of the WORD that God used to touch your heart, too!

This is the WORD that blessed me this week:

I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes - I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
Job. 19:25-27

May the JOY of the LORD fill you up this weekend. See you back here Monday!

I'm a wee bit behind in my daily reading (like 30 days). *sigh*

My word for the day is perserverance. And yes, I know you didn't mean a word, but a WORD. I'm just saying....

Wow, I have never heard that verse, and it speaks mountains over my journey right now. I like this idea. Very cool.

Isn't it funny how you read the Word and read the Word and then one day, you see something and think, "How come I never saw that before?" I had never seen this part: "after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God;" before. To someone like me that has to battle eczema from time to time, that really speaks to me!

I love the idea of this week's Word!

By the way, Karen, I'm praying that your trip to Florida Monday goes well.

Hey, that is a good idea! I can't wait to see what it is each weak. Also, how different Words will jump out at each of us.
