Bible Verses: 2 Timothy 3:16-17

"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work."

Your Word is true; Your instructions to me are written in Your Word, and You are the Word that was made flesh and dwelt among us. Lord Jesus, help me to remember what I read in Your Word so that I can use them to converse with You instead of relying on my inconsequential words.

I have read the Bible a few times and stopped. My dad knew it well, preached on the radio and when asked would preach at church, with a 6 grade education. He was born in Honduras. Passed away in 1988 at 74 yrs old. Theodore Epp, J. Vernon McGee helped him learn,study scriptures. He listen to these guys all the time. Any questions I had he knew in the Bible exactly where to find it. Me I'm a different story. My brothers preach in church when asked,and they know the scriptures,but me wow don't remember,
comprehend anything, don't t get me wrong, my dad was a carpenter learned a lot from him there. But why something so valuable to me as reading and understanding God's word does'nt stick in my brain. I asked my dad one time to help me with a situation I had at work. A coworker new little of my back ground and said I was going to hell because I was baptized wrong. I call my dad, and he asked me son are you saved and I said yes sir I am. He knew I asked the Lord to come into my heart and save me,and he was there when I was baptized. I think he just wanted to hear me say it. In 2 days I got a 2 page letter with Bible verses to talk to this coworker who was not a Christian that only wanted to stir things up and he never said anything to me again. Why can't I be like him. I'm m 64 and feel like my time is slipping away because I don't remembering of the most valuable things in my life . The Bible, God's word. You know salvation is a free gift from God all you have to do is ask,and believe. I'm sorry this was so long. God bless you.

John - I am praying for God to give you the words share with others and that they will see who Jesus is through you. We get to plant the seeds & God waters them.

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [a]instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for instruction, for conviction, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.…

Often when our Soul is heavy it is because God is speaking to us to remind us He left us His Word/Truth so that our Souls would never be heavy. We must cling to The Holly Bible carry it in your heart, pocket, car, at work. So when we start to feel doubt lonely forgotten, we can Hold tight to Jesus Promises. In knowing He is alive within us at our side. Open His word just open it read from that book you open to. Remember without Jesus without His word the beautiful life He gave us back has no true meaning.

Not matter what comes our way we know nothing can stand against The Power of our God! Look up call on Jesus and know He is listening. He already overcame this world, now stand up and on His Foundation and Solid Rock knowing everything will be alright if you let your Heart Trust in Jesus.

Father Thank You for Your Faithfulness Mercy Peace and Grace to know I can turn to You let go surrendering all to You and let God be in Jesus name Amen
