Word Filled Wednesday John 15:18

The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday is to share the Word with a photo and a verse.



I was given this verse by my husband recently as it is one of his favorites. I find it very interesting how much "his" verses are different from "mine". The verses that inspire him have a much stronger tone and are quite blunt and to the point! I like that!

This afternoon, as I sit in my tastefully decorated hotel room overlooking the strip in Reno, I find this verse means a lot more to me than usual. Every where you go in this town there are HUGE reminders that people do not know God. I was talking to a new friend today and we had a discussion about "finding Jesus". I don't know about you, but my Jesus is everywhere I go. I have never felt like I had to FIND Him, because I'm the only one that was ever lost - He was here all along. Even driving by the porn shops and topless bars I know that Jesus is here. He is very sad at what He sees - but he is here. I am glad to be able to spend a little time in the outside world to help me remember that there are many lost people out there - they can't be any worse off, so why not take a chance and say something to someone who could use some encouragement? Who cares if they hate you for it?
May God smile on you today!

WOW, I really like Bryan's choices... that one really hit home. Not that anybody hates me today thankfully, but I have been there... of course when I've been hated, I have typically given a good reason to be hated...

At least Jesus stood for something when he was hated first.

People hated me because I was a dumb ass. =)
