Lord of All

John 8:58 “‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!'” (NIV)*

Before there was an Abraham

Before Adam knew the fall

Before any religion of man

He was, and will forever be, Lord of all.

    Okay, I finally read the last bit of print! It was getting spooky, that you were always writing/reading from the exact portion of scripture I was just in–now I see why, we both use The One Year Bible, NIV! Oh my goodness, I’m such a goof! I read the same words today–how fun that we truly are “on the same page”, God bless you Big–love, sis Caddo

      Awesome! The One Year Bible works for me:) Have been trying something new the past couple weeks so that my posts can stew overnight…I’ve been reading a day ahead. Found that I was posting before I was quite ready…this is helping…but not set in concrete because life happens…blessings to you!

        I’ve been doing The One Year Bible for a few years, and it works well for me too. This year I’ve added something more–I received a Christmas gift of The One Year Chronological Bible NIV, so I’m reading twice as much per day, and really benefiting. God bless you as you write for Him!
