However, I am astonished by how God speaks to me and assures me through the verses when I'm not even trying to "find" something. For example, today I began the tedious and meticulous task of cutting out the pieces for Kendrick's new full size bed quilt as he was napping in my sewing chair. It's usually early afternoon when I begin thinking about a picture, if I hadn't already captured one. Of course my mind goes straight to the sweet boy catching some Z's 8 feet away from me. But, I have just about exhausted all of the sleeping verses.
Then I turned to what I was doing-cutting. Surely there was a verse there. So, I snapped and edited my photo and began to search for the scripture to accompany it.
Proverbs jumped right out at me. I wasn't even looking for anything within this context.
"Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing." Proverbs 12:18.
Not only have I been praying for wise words for a week, but also for healing through those words. God is so good to give us reassurance through scripture, to validate our requests and give us His words to pray.
May you find random blessings through His word as well.
