    Hi guys
    Just wanted to share my heart a little bit. This morning did not start so well. In checking the bank I found that I had miss added and my account will be almost -$60.00 when everything comes back. I figured I would just take money out from the credit card and put it in the bank. easier said than done, one card was declined…don’t know why, there’s plenty of money in it. The other card I don’t know the pin to so I figured I would go into the bank. Unfortunately…the card is in my husband’s name and I am not a signer. While I had his blessing to do this, I needed his signature and he was long gone to work. I could have screamed, but instead I turned on Way FM on my way home and your song “Greater” came on. By the time I got home I was singing, dancing, clapping and tapping my foot. Thank you for putting it in perspective for me :)

    I cannot for the life of me find a place where I can ask for permission to use this for my personal blog. This list is amazing and I would love my readers to have a copy to read for themselves. Who can I email to request permission? Thank you!

    Hi, I want to thank Bart Millard and his team for putting these scriptures on here. They have really made me think. I hope you will leave these up for a while. I really enjoy looking at them. The scriptures really do remind of how great God is to me. Please also come back to Charleston WV. That concert that the guys did was the best concert I think I have ever seen in my whole life. You guys are Awesome.. Thank you for great memories, with the family.

    blessings to all, the church of today remains affected by the misperceptions of the Early church. the sacrament of penance was offered only once during the life of a Christian. Interestingly, the church attemped to emulate Our Jesus’ mandate as it was written, Go….and from now on do not sin again”(jn 8:11) Although it would have been nice to receive forgiveness and ” go and sin no more,” the expectation was unrealistic. the point is missed.
    Jesus did not teach us how we are “:NOT” to live, HE TAUGHT US HOW TO love………….
    ……. and to love Love Him with all the Heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength”, to Love one’s neighbor as oneself,” I know Now that is Much more important than all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices”

    for Love is all there is and all that will ever be.

    God has put me in a place where I am walking with a friend through a very difficult time in her life. Each day, I come to this post and text her 3 verses that God highlights to me and hit send. The verses are ministering to her in a way that only Jesus himself could use in her heart! Thank you for compiling such a great collection of verses on identity! Blessing to MercyMe!
