Pressing On - my FIRST Word-Filled Wednesday

Several of my friends have been participating in Word Filled Wednesdays for a while, and I've decided to jump in myself. What a wonderful way to express God's Word in a unique way! So...here I go.

Just a couple days ago I chose this verse as my theme verse for 2009. Persevering is such a struggle, especially when things are going slowly. But the summit is in sight!

  1. I love it, Jo!! That's a perfect picture to go with that verse! I'm so glad you're joining the fun!! Huggles!

  2. beautiful! :) I"m so glad you posted this week with us! and yes, every Wed. I'll be posting WFW! :)

  3. Great verse to hold onto for the year. Definitely a firm anchor...to keep pressing on to take hold of all of that for which Christ Jesus has taken hold of us.

    He's got a purpose for you and me...he's taken hold of us for something. Our turn to take back...to pull and to press and to receive the fullness of our Father's intended plan.

    Can't wait to see how's He is going to bless you in the matter. Keep to it.



Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
