A Blessing For Us

This is my rushed week.
The week I attend the ACFW Writers' Conference. I leave on Wednesday and will drive back next Monday.

Perhaps you are having a time when many events, tasks, whatever are happening/due. If not right at this time, you will have, I'm sure.

So here is a blessing for both of us:

May the Lord Bless you and keep you
The Lord make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you
And give you peace
Numbers 6:24-26 KJV

For this reason I kneel before the Father, 
from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you 
with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. 
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 
may have power, together with all the believers, 
to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ 
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--
that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, 
according to his power that is at work within us,
to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, 
for ever and ever! 
Ephesians 3:14-20

Psalm 121:7-8 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.

Thanks for the blessings you shared. I'm looking forward to seeing the blessings others will share on this.

Love this, Mary.

A verse I never, ever get tired of:

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Romans 15:13

Here are 2 blessings/verses for you Christian fiction writers/authors:

(1) 2 Chronicles 15:7 - But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. (NIV)

(2) Hebrews 6:10 - God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.(NIV)

Praying for an enjoyable, fruitful, & restorative time for each of you at the ACFW conference this week!
