Word Filled Wednesday 1 Corinthians 16:13

The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday is to share the WORD through a photo and a verse. Today is a photo of my youngest - he's standing atop a HUGE rock that lifts him up to appear over the top of a large building. He feels like he's on top of the world!


How many times do you let your guard down? If you're anything like me, it's probably daily. Probably even hourly! Whether it's the company we choose to keep or the people we are obligated to spend our days with because of our jobs or ministries - we are all subjected to being caught off guard with things that could take our faith and splinter it to bits.

Do we choose to let that questionable friendship make us weak by "following the crowd", or just being constantly agreeable? Do we allow the co-worker in our office to bully us into making poor choices that have consequences that take us down? Do we let other people control our emotions? Certainly it happens. We are prodded in this verse to stand up for ourselves and our faith, to be courageous and strong. To not waver. Our rewards are heavenly and not earthly. Get in there and be in the world, but do not be OF the world.

The photo is great...you are soooo talented! And, the verse goes with it perfectly!

This is such a good message, Alexis. I talk to my boys all the time about making poor choices and the consequences. It's much easier to TALK it than to WALK it at times, though. :o)

How are you doing? I'm praying for you!

Love,
Beth

Love this verse Alexis.
At our revival last night the preacher was talking about Noah and how he stood firm in his faith with the world around him corrupt. That people no doubt mocked him and he must have stood alone in doing the task God set him out to do.
The sparkles in your picture remind me of the bajillion lightnin bugs we had last night. Looked like somethin out of a Stephen Spielberg movie.
Holykisses,
Lea

Hi Alexis! Trying to do a little catching up. I haven't been by much lately and I'm missing all my bloggy buds. I love this WFW...such a great reminder for all of us. God brought you to mind several times today. Lifted a prayer on your behalf and wanted to be sure to stop by and see you after work. Hope you're doing well.

Love & blessings,
