Word Filled Wednesday...

It's always a treat when I visit other Christian blogs... I love the idea of World filled Wednesday... 160 Acre Woods

The purpose of Word filled Wednesday is to share God’s word through photo’s & a verse!

So today I choose this picture of the Rockies of Colorado. I snapped this photo in early April on our annual trek to the mountains. My favorite place on earth! This is where, 7 years ago, the Lord spoke a mighty word to me and released me of a stronghold that had been burdening my heart for years. You could say I had a mountaintop moment on a mountaintop. Each year when I land in Denver, and I see those mountains in the distance... it's like coming home!

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. ~ Psalm 18:2

I chose this verse to go w/ the photo... because on the great rock (rockies) the Lord delivered me! I pray today that if you are being held captive by a stronghold... that you can have a mountaintop moment - and it doesn't have to be on a mountaintop - it can be in the quiet of your room, on a busy street, at the kitchen table... God can deliver you right where you are. Trust Him. Ask Him... and believe Him. He will do it. Turn it over, let it go...

That is SO fantastic how it fits the words perfectly.

Mountains are always the perfect images for how steady and strong our Heavenly Father is.

I had to find our Rock this morning as I wrote my latest post! The enemy sure tried his best, but he didn't. I've had to walk the talk for the past 6 hours, but finally, VICTORY. Praise the ROCK from whom I've been cut.

Beautiful picture! ~elaine

Awesome verse and beautiful picture! The Rockies are one of my favorite places too--I've never been there when there's snow though. I've only been camping in the summer (too many times to count). Maybe someday I'll get to go on a ski trip! :)

Hi Kristen,
WOW! I love the new look! Good for you! Playing with the different designs can get addictive.

The words you left on my site today were so encouraging, THANK YOU. It was hard for me to write that post, as it brought back a lot of ugly memories, but I am finally able to face some things that have kept me in bondage for a long time...

Also, the pictures of the mountains is lovely. We haven't been in years and I miss seeing their breathtaking beauty.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and I will "see ya soon".

Love,
Kelley

Great Picture and Verse.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog with the awesome words to that song. It really "hit" the spot. I must say... as soon as I saw your picture with your bib overalls on, I thought, "now, this is a girl that I can identify with".

Thanks again, Lynn
