What is your favorite Bible Verse?
“1 You have searched me, LORD,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, LORD, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain. “
It tells me that the Lord knows me, what I am doing and what I say. The Lord is in front and behind me and holds me in His hands. This is such wonderful news.
Where is your favorite place to have one-on-one time with God?
My favorite time to spent one – on – one time is in the morning. My favorite place is when I am in His nature, so when I am hunting, walking or working on the farm I feel the closest. God’s favorite time and place is anywhere and anytime. I try to make any place a favorite place to be with God.
