Last week during my Bible study, a verse jumped out at me. Funny, isn’t it, how you can read a passage countless times and then one day, the words come alive in a new and powerful way?
I shared the verse on Instagram and on Facebook. And the words burrowed deep into my heart and mind. Ten words, written by Paul at the end of his second letter to son in the faith, Timothy.
Ten words. A benediction of sorts, a prayer of blessing.
At the end of his life, after his proclamation he fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith, Paul offered these words of encouragement and blessing to Timothy:
The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you. ~ 2 Timothy 4:22
As a new week begins, may I offer these same words to you, uttered in prayer over you? And as you receive, may you also give … praying these same words for those in your life?
What verse has jumped out at you lately?
