Blessed Is She that Believes

May 30, 2017

Sometimes, when I find a verse I especially like during my personal devotions, or if I come across a quote I want to remember, I write it on an index card. Then the index card usually floats around on the top of my desk for awhile before I stick it in a desk drawer with a pile of others.

On this beautiful cold morning, the last day of May and the first real day of my summer vacation—because up until now I’ve been so busy with tornadoes and weddings and memorial events and video shoots I haven’t had any—I read over some of the index cards piled in my desk drawer.

Beautiful.

So encouraging to read over words that have helped one previously and to have those promises and commitments brought fresh to mind. Here are a few that speak to my needs this morning. Perhaps they will to yours as well.

“Yes, Lord, we wait for You in the path of Your judgments. Our desire is for Your name and reknown.” Isaiah 26:9

“And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45

“Lord, send anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever any ties but the ties that bind me to your service and your heart.” -David Livingstone

“When I die I wish it to be said of me that her faith was simple and her God was large.” -Lucinda J. Miller

  1. I’ve sometimes wondered why the word BELIEVE on interior decor signs, etc. from P. Graham Dunn, Hobby Lobby and other vendors. I myself have it on a cube sitting atop my tea cup hutch. Thanks to you, Luci, I now know why. “…for there shall be a performance…from the Lord. ” Clearly a reason to believe! Thank you.

  2. I loved reading this post 🙂 and especially enjoyed the quote by David Livingstone (I could repeat those words over and over again, they’re worthy of meditating on) . My husband is reading the Story of David Livingstone at the moment and reads segments to me in the evening while I cook dinner… what a coincidence. Blessings to you ~ Linda

    1. David Livingstone had a fascinating life. I’ve heard bits and pieces but never read a full biography. Good to hear from you, Linda. Blessings to you!

  3. This post made me break my blog fast! 😀

    One verse I’ve clung to during all the moves, house clearings/sales, and deaths this year: “But he who listens to me shall live securely / And will be at ease from the dread of evil.” Proverbs 1:33
