Devotionals

Underlined Memories

My parents gave me a Bible for Christmas during my senior year of high school. Twenty years later, it’s marked with dates in the margins and underlined passages as it’s journeyed with me through school, college, adulthood, marriage and children. I love flipping through the pages and reminiscing moments with God in various seasons. I thought I’d share a random list of verses with you that I like and, hopefully, encourage your day. (I’ve included the references so you can read the context if you’d like.)
