A few weeks ago, a student at Cornerstone remarked that she didn't have a Bible at home.  I had just received a donation of Bibles, so, I turned grabbed one and told her to take this home.  She was shocked -- and thankful.  Amazingly, this young woman has been reading the Bible from cover to cover ever since -- at lunch, during down time in class, in the evenings, whenever she has a free moment.

Every day at lunch, she takes out a post-it note, preprinted with these cute little anchors, and writes a verse for me that she has read and thinks I will like (or maybe that she thinks I need to hear).  I have been posting these over my desk to kind of "anchor" my day.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take."  Proverbs 3:5-6

"Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others.  Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.  Don't look out only for your own interests, but take interest in others too.  You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had."  Philippians 2:3-5

"But God is so rich in mercy, and he loves us so much that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead.  (It is only by God's grace that you have been saved)."  Ephesians 2:4-5

My prayer is that these samples of what she has written will help "anchor" your day as well...and may we all have a renewed thirst for God's word.
