Each year I choose a passage of scripture to meditate on each day–the same verses every day.

I wanted to imprint it on my mind like a TV or computer monitor would imprint a picture if the same picture remained frozen on the screen for a long time.

I started in 2014 with Psalm 23 — the Good Shepherd verses. In 2015 I chose Psalm 139. I’m still meditating on Romans 8: 38-39 for 2016.

It recently occurred to me that the verses I chose to read every day spoke to me because it revealed how God shows his love for me in my love language.

I wrote about my love language in a previous post.  I feel loved when someone wants to spend time with me. This is called “Quality Time” in the book  THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES by Gary Chapman.

God wants to spend time with me. His Word tells me so.

Stay tuned for future posts. I plan to share passages that meet the other love languages. Maybe you’ll find love in the pages of the Bible.

Psalm 23

4 Even though I walk

through the darkest valley,[a]

I will fear no evil,

    for you are with me;

your rod and your staff,

they comfort me.

Psalm 139

7 Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?

8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;

if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

Romans 8:38-39New International Version (NIV)
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
