This Week’s Thought

Life’s demands distract us, constantly filling our days with “now what?” “what’s next?” “Get this done. And, oh … Don’t forget!” Sometimes it’s difficult to silence all the noise and distractions of our busy to-do list. So, we love it when God shouts louder and lifts the weights we try to carry. We’re grateful when He lovingly calls and captures our attention.

This Week’s Scripture

Today, God captured our attention with Isaiah 43:1-3. “But now, this is what the LORD says — he who created you…he who formed you…”Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” (NIV)

This Week’s Application

  2. Pray, “Lord, speak to us. Help us to hear Your direction and thoughts for our life and marriage.”
  3. Meditate on the Scripture listed above.
  4. Write down anything God shares.
  5. Then, share your thoughts together and close in prayer.
