Been Thinkin...(Monday Manna for September 20)

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

On the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse--posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be long -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Linky Tools gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

I'm in the book of Isaiah for my daily Bible reading. Just started, in fact. So much amazing stuff in here. Here are a couple verse I've appreciated and pondered for a while--not to it yet in my reading, but I will be soon enough.
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
       neither are your ways my ways,"
       declares the LORD.
 "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
       so are my ways higher than your ways
       and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Looking forward to your thoughts on this. See you Monday! :)

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. What? Already? I'm still working on the armor of God. ;)

    I love this verse, too. Have lots of thoughts about it, too. Maybe I'll share some this time.
    Love you!

  2. I was just sharing these verses with my husband yesterday while on our way to the dr.s. They have been especially comforting to me in the season of questions and faith.

    Blessed rest to you and yours this weekend. Thanks for joining me on the journey!



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

My One Word: 2016 and 2017
