Monday Manna for April 4

The purpose of Monday Manna to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word. Each Thursday, a Bible verse to ponder will be posted, either here or at my dear friend Vonnie's blog, My Back Door. The following Monday, those participating will post their thoughts on the verse at their own blogs and link up at the bottom of the post in the Mr. Linky  gadget. The main purpose is to chew on the same Scripture and learn from one another.

I'm hosting this week. This verse grabbed me several days ago as I was reading the devotional Streams In The Desert (an absolute favorite of mine!).
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:6 NIV
Lots to think about, eh? Looking forward to seeing you back here Monday!

  1. Great verse!
    (In fact, I had planned to choose this very same one for my next one. I guess it was meant to be.)

  2. I love this verse and I always look forward to your take on it. I am so behind in visiting because of my trip so checking in to see how you are doing Joanne. Hope all is well!

  3. Another great pick Joanne. Look forward to reading your thoughts.


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