a lamp

i love that scripture has the ability to be fresh to you even if you've read it a million times.  there's always something that you missed, something new that the Lord can show you through his inspired words.  the very words of God.  who are we to be able to read, say, know, hear & pray God's word?!  what a blessing that He lets us know Him, his heart, mind & character through scripture.

recently i read through the gospel of john and i literally felt like i was reading it with new eyes.  so much jumped out at me that i never noticed before.  maybe its this stage of life that i'm in or what my relationship with God is like right now or maybe the Lord just revealed things to me this time that he hadn't before.  it was so full & rich.  jesus' life spoken by one of his best friends who was around him all the time.  a guy who had experienced the power & grace & love of christ in full.  i enjoyed the last verse of the book so much that i thought i'd share.  at the end of this account he says:

"Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written."
john 21:25
 my thoughts:
1.  i think that c.s. lewis writes like john.  i read that and felt like i was reading narnia.
2.  hahaha...'jesus did many other things as well' - its so funny to me that he wrote that. just kind of a disclaimer that john's account doesn't encompass everything that jesus did.  he did some other things too.
3.  um, how awesome!  the whole world couldn't contain all the stories that could be written of HIM.  isn't that one of the coolest things ever?


  1. The word of God truly is "living & active!"

  2. At different times in our lives the scripture speaks to us in different ways/ meeting the needs of our day.

    Have a great week.
