Lorna Brown led our mid-week Bible study in a wonderful lesson where people were invited to share the Bible verse they were trying to “wake up with”. There were many wonderful scriptures shared and some quotes as well.
Psalm 121 “I lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comes my help? It comes from the Lord…” was recited from memory in full! Others had picked Roman’s 8 or Psalm 23 or Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
There was a special request that I list the quote that one person wakes up to. While this is not “in the Bible” it is certainly a great Biblically inspired quote: “If you feel that you are drowning in suffering, grief or pain, remember your life guard walks on water!”
Another great quote in response to someone saying “I worry too much about tomorrow.” was “Do you realize tomorrow never comes? There is only the past and today.” That gave us a good laugh, but it is true!
