600 Straight Days of Well VerseD Thoughts

On May 1, 2018, I began writing daily mini-devotionals with a verse (or short passage) of the day, calling them VerseD.

Now, due to errors in the WordPress app loading a couple of days VerseD’s before I went on a 3-day river trip, WP thinks I missed a few days in my run.

Sad.

So, I will just go with what they tell me … at least for today!

So, for 600 straight days, the internet has been getting VerseD in my thoughts on Scripture.

Do you feel well VerseD in the Bible?

I invite you to do two things:

  1. Join me (or continue joining me) in your daily Scripture reading, and
  2. Let me know if you enjoy getting these daily mini-devos!
    1. Bonus: Any thoughts on adding to these, such as longer devotionals or video VerseD messages and what they could look like. IT IS ON YOU TO DECIDE! (Somewhat.)

It has been one of those blessed burdens to post these. I do not always feel like finding the strength, time, and energy to post these, but I am always blessed by my time in the Word. And a few brothers and sisters tend to come along and encourage me on those days it is the hardest to share or that I feel like I wasted my words.

Hopefully, on this Easter/Resurrection Sunday, you are blessed by my words and, more importantly, God’s Word.

In His Love,

Daniel

VerseD: Romans 4:7

“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered”
Romans 4:7, ESV

What greater joy can there be than to know you deserved destruction but were given forgiveness and grace.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:7

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:7, ESV

Trusting the Lord brings the blessings of forgiveness, grace, a changed heart and mind, inner peace, and eternal life in Christ.

VerseD: Matthew 5:4

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
Matthew 5:4, ESV

Foremost, we mourn our sin and rebellion against God, then we will be blessed with the comfort of our Savior.

VerseD: Psalm 119:2

Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart,
Psalm 119:2, ESV

True happiness is found in knowing and obeying God and His Word. Make this your driving passion in life. All else is secondary.

VerseD: Romans 4:7

“blessed are those whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, and whose sins have been covered.”
Romans 4:7, NASB

Blessed – Happy, joyous, elated, grateful – are those who have realized their own wretchedness before a holy God and also realized the grace and forgiveness He offers through the cross of Christ.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:7

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord .
Jeremiah 17:7, NASB

God gives us stuff, sure, but the one who trusts God learns to be content in all circumstances and regardless of what is (or is not) received.
