Wife to Wife Wednesday: Favorite Scripture

It's Wednesday, so that means it is time of another link up with Wife to Wife Wednesday hosted by Wives of Faith. Each week, Wives of Faith posts a topic allowing military wives the chance to connect. And who doesn't need a little community?

Today, the question is "What is your favorite scripture and why?"

Of course I love the greatest love story ever told found in John 3:16, but after that, my favorite verse is Psalm 118:24......

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

As you can see, I have it framed in my living room (this is actually a greeting card that I bought years ago). I also have it on a coffee cup one of my students gave me last year.

Why do  love this verse? It serves as a daily reminder that God is in control. He has planned out each and everyday and it is up to me to be content in every situation. It is up to me to rejoice in my mountaintops and valley moments.  One thing I have learned in my 9 year Christian walk is that God is in all things. He is in all situations, good and bad.  Those moments mold me and shape me into the woman He has planned for me to be.  How can I not rejoice in that?

What about you?  What is your favorite scripture? I would love to hear about it.
