Word Filled Wednesday Amos 5:24

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


Amos 5:24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never failing stream.

I'm on a righteousness kick this month. Not sure why, but I'm not arguing with where I get my inspiration so we're just going to have to live with it. This photo was taken this past weekend, as we were scouting my husband's secret favorite fishing spot. We didn't hear good reports about the salmon run, but we did get some beautiful photos of the Yaquina River. Sit here with me for a minute and take in the scenery and take in this verse. Who reads Amos? Well I did - and it's got some good stuff!

Thanks for joining me today... for more inspiring posts, please visit:

There is so much "meat" in some of the smaller, forgotten books. I am in Habakkuk right now. I will read Amos after this. Thank you for the beautiful picture. We have a photo in our house of a small stream, I look at it often especially when I am stressed about something.

love the photo, Lexi.

I think it's funny how one person can get stuck in a theme or chapter/book. There's always some lesson God has in that...

I'm thumbing through my Bible as I type (one-handed, of course) heading over to Amos.

Thanks for your visit to my blog today. Your words and prayers are much appreciated. And I follow good advice too...see I came to you for the refreshing I need and what did I find? A beautiful "stream in the desert" (Isaiah 43:19)...

How you have lifted me, friend!

What a beautiful place you found! Glad you captured it for us in a photo. I love when through a shared verse in WFW, we're directed to a portion of scripture we might not otherwise read...going to have to check out Amos! Thanks for encouraging me!

Blessings,
Tracy
