In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a town in Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!
Consider the joy between Elizabeth and Mary described here. We each have the Spirit of the Living God in us, so let us consider the same kind of celebration when encountering our brothers and sisters in Christ!

And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
Imagine what your response would be like if you were Mary, experiencing this moment with Gabriel. Let us remember to be reverent toward and thankful for her “yes.”

Welcome to the blog portion of TheDailyVerse.Com – for those of you who have been subscribers to the email list for years, you know that this site is all about remiding us that the Word of God is alive and it applies to our lives, sometimes in ways we’ve never considered.
I couple a Scripture reference with a few sentences of my own personal commentary. It’s short, simple and real-life. It’s based on what I experience, what I’m learning. I’m by no means a biblical scholar – but I do know and love a very personable God, and I’m excited to share with others what He’s teaching me and showing me.
I’ll be doing more in-depth commentaries, blogs and just general “a life in the day of” on this blog page – so I hope you join me in reading, commenting and giving me your two cents. I love how God has made us each unique and gifted in His own special way – and it excites me to discuss, debate and philosophize, so join me in the entries to come, and thanks for being a part of The Daily Verse!
