to say last week was stressful is an understatement. i take full blame though- i fully, 100% overcommitted myself and was running around like a crazy person. somehow though, i kept breathing and trusting God for His strength to get me through the week in one piece. and no surprise there, He came through on His promises!
being so busy last week, meant i total ignored the blog though, so we are going to catch up on two scripture verses together this week!
if you want to catch up on the first few verses you can do so here, here and here. take it one verse at a time, or feel free to just pick it up with us this week!
Here is last weeks and this weeks verses:

And we know that all things work together
for good to those who love God, to those
who are the called according to His purpose

THE FAMILY SECRET IS CONDITIONAL:
'to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

I love what Hawkins says in the introduction of this book talking about the 'Joshua Code':
'The Joshua Code is a challenge to keep God's Word in our mouths through memorization and to keep it in our hearts through meditation "day and night"'.
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night,
that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success"
j o s h u a 1 : 8
I pray that you continue to come back to the blog for the weekly verses as we learn and memorize scripture verses together and grow in faith and love together!
