This weeks letter is F
"just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world,

that we would be holy and blameless before Him In love"

Ephesians 1:4

I'm not sure about you, but this verse blew me away the first time I really got what it said. That God thought of me and you before He even created the world. That He knew when, what time, and place He would place us. He knew our part in His plan before the world was created and how our little vapor of a life would be important to our plan. He also knew we would need Salvation, and He made a plan for that so we could be with Him again. WOW.

For more ABC's of the Word head over to Pam's at Grey Like Snuffie.

Oh to be holy and blameless before Him...what a goal to achieve!

Thank you for sharing this verse!

Kind of like what I wrote in my email prayer request #5 today. How God knew 25 years ago a woman who would return to my path and big a pivotal part in making my house deals INDIRECTLY without interruption.
Love and MISS YOU

Hi Carol,
You popped up in my email twice today so I thought I better pop right back and say Hi. I'm so glad I did! You're a Snuffie Girl!! Pam will be thrilled that I just coined a new term :0. I'm so terrible once Thursday is over or should I say Thursday morning. I always check back with her Mr. Linky a couple times in the morn and then go about my day. I always feel guilty because there are those that have so many wonderful things to share and I forget to check in once Thursday is over. All that said, I'm going to go back and check Mr. Linky again, but before I do I'll comment...this scripture was such an eye opener for me too! To think that He thought out every tiny detail before anything was begun and that He knew everything that we would do just blows me away. I'm so thankful that there's nothing I can do that will throw Him a loop and trust me, I've done some "loopers" in my life.

I hope you have a blessed rest of the weekend! And thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

xoxo Cori
