Pam at Gray Like Snuffie is hosting 'The A B C's of the Word'. Today's letter is "X".

Pam suggested this week we use a verse which has extra meaningful to us at this particular time in our lives since verses with x are far and few between. I had already prepared this post using
II Peter 1:4:

"exceeding great and precious promises are given to us. "

It actually ties in with the verse I've added tonight. I want to share my life verse, which is especially meaningful to me right now. Some things feel out of control in my life right now and lately I have been doubting my ability to deal. But then Pam made this suggestion to share a special personal verse. And I remembered what promises can be found in the Word of God. Philippians 4:13 is a welcome reminder that even though I cannot control things, He can. I can cope through the strength He provides.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

I can not tell you how much certain bible verses have comforted, encouraged and taught me. I'm so glad you have verses that help you too.

I knew there were some X words that were names, but most of them were not the most exciting verses. :) I still like the idea of seeing a bit more about people by what verse is special and for what reason. Although if the verses are in the Bible there is a reason.... :)

I love how God's word speaks to each of us, just right where our hearts need to be spoken to.

Good morning Kathy,

I learned long ago that there is nothing That I can control, but everything CAN be turned over to Him. Sometimes it's hard because we can't see Him, but He is always there and in complete control.I hope everything is going ok for you.

Hi Kathy!!

Just stopping by to visit your ABC's and thank you for visiting mine.

I actually stopped by last week and got lost in all the beautiful pictures of your home and redecorating and forgot to leave a comment!!

Yes, we can do all things through Jesus. He is there with us every step of the way. He knows our struggles and doubts and fears. Sometimes we just to lean on Him a little harder than other times. Lean hard into Him and let Him embrace you and feel His love and support.

He's there for you!!

Blessings Kathy...I Love 2 Peter & your verse is Xceedingly Xcellent!

How precious are His promises!

I too cling to Philippians 4:13!
What a beautiful life verse!

Father, I lift Kathy before You and all that is surrounding her and feeling out of control! Help her to be confident in You that through You she CAN do ALL things! Kathy is more than able to deal with this & You have given her the ability to do just that! Kathy is not in control but YOU are in control. Kathy surrenders her control to You! Provide her with Your Strength
in Jesus' precious Name.

May the JOY of the Lord be Your strength, Kathy today & each day until stability and assurance rests in YOU from the hands of the Almighty! Find comfort & peace in His promises! How nice these two verses go so well together!
