I began underlining and highlighting and writing in the margins.
Facebook has a feature that will show me my “memories” from each day over the past years. This week I saw a picture I had posted of scripture my Dad had copied down. What a joy for me to see his distinct left handed script. And what a treasure to know that he also liked verses in Romans 8.
Now, I use the Bible Gateway app. I can enter a verse and select a variety of translations to read. Sometimes I like to make the “Heather Translation” by blending some together. This version of Romans 8:38-39 is a mix of the Amplified Bible and the Living Bible:
I am so grateful that my salvation is secure through faith alone. And that there is nothing I can ever do to add to that or take away from it. It is impossible to get beyond God’s loving reach.
In His Name, Heather
