Scripture Sunday



As each day brings us closer to Easter, I am focusing on becoming holy as Jesus is holy.  I know I will  never achieve perfect holiness this side of heaven, but each step I take brings me closer to my Lord and Savior.

"God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life."

~ 1 Thessalonians 4.7

"What does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul."

~ Deuteronomy 10.12

"Serve Him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts.  If  you seek Him, He will be found by you."

~ 1 Chronicles 28.9

Dear Father,

Draw me closer to You not only during this season of Lent, but all the time.  Make it my desire to know You better and follow You more closely.

    I long to pursue Him with my whole heart too---not just in the hard times, but the good ones too!


  5. Thank you for such a simple, and yet profound devotion!! Blessings to you!
