Eating the Word

Sometimes. Sometimes all we need is to lay aside our timeline for the moment and start partaking of Him who is the Word, the Bread of Life, and drinking from the water that causes us to never thirst again. Today is one of those sometimes. We're going to munch away on just one verse this morning, one verse from a number of translations and versions of the Bible. Want to linger a bit longer at the table? What if we print or write them out. Then we can highlight specific words, sections, or phrases throughout our day, maybe even our week.

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Psalm 27:14
Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord. -- Amp
