I have a lot of favorite scriptures. Verses that give me hope, courage, inspire me, convict me, challenge me to action. Favorite promises from God’s Word for different areas of my life. In Jeremiah, God spoke a new favorite verse directly to my mama-heart as I lifted my sons to Him.
As a young Christian, I came across verse after verse in the Bible about forgiveness and praying for your enemies, but I ignored theses verses and would just turn the page. I was so deeply hurt; I didn’t want to forgive or pray for my nemesis.
I was struggling with a project that didn’t work out well for me, and I suddenly realized I was repeating the same words I had heard from my student. At that moment, God’s Holy Spirit spoke to my heart.
