Sunday

“‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. ~ Revelations 3:8
When I was a very little girl in Sunday School, I used to be horribly afraid of the Book of Revelations. I remember our teacher telling us that if we ever wanted to read a scary book, all we needed was that book of the Bible. I couldn't wrap my head around all that it spoke of with things with 7 heads, shouts, fire, snakes, lions, etc. (lol!). I basically never read that book if I could help it, which is completely silly. Because today, this beautiful verse brings me much comfort.

Amen :-)

  1. Oh, I love this verse!! I pray it so often. I used to feel the same way but then I took the Beth Moore Revelation study earlier this year, and it was just amazing. It's now one of my most favorite books...and has given me such comfort.

    1. Hi Christine! Thanks for relating to me fear! lol. I will have to check out Beth Moore - good to know. I want to explore Revelations from a different view of being afraid. Thanks for the "comfort tip." :-)
