When I was in my late 20’s, our pastor challenged us to seek God’s Word for the one verse that we would memorize and put into practice daily: our life verse. As I searched for my verse (after several months), the one verse that kept coming back to me was Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it heartily, as working for the Lord and not for men.”
This one verse I continue to practice. Am I always successful? No! But then I repent and try again. It is with a heart of thankfulness that I know God loves me even in my failures and shortcomings. But I also know that He loves me enough to challenge me to do better.
Dear Reader, I pray that you will also know the love of Christ even in the midst of a challenging day. That you would find hope and joy in Him.
