My Bible are the words

My Bible are the words of life. When I grab my Bible it it’s like sitting down and being ushered into the presence of the Creator of the Universe who is also my Father and best friend and sitting at His feet and soaking in His Words of wisdom and life. My favorite verse is Matt 10:39 “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” This verse reminds me not to self-protect but rather give my life away willingly where Jesus directs me to, being generous like my Heavenly Father is generous with me. It seems counter-productive to lose your life willingly but really this is the secret to happiness. Jesus flips everything in our worlds upside down. I must give to receive, I must be a servant to lead, a slave to be free, humble to be lifted up, weak to be strong, a fool to be wise and die to truly live.
