The Bible

When I am tired, the Bible is my bed;
Or in the dark, the Bible is my light;
When I am hungry, it is vital bread;
Or fearful, it is armour for the fight;
When I am sick, 'tis healing medicine;
Or lonely, thronging friends I find therein.

If I would work, the Bible is my tool;
Or play, it is a harp of happy sound.
If I am ignorant, it is my school;
If I am sinking, it is solid ground.
If I am cold, the Bible is my fire;
And wings, if boldly I aspire.

Should I be lost, the Bible is my guide;
Or naked, it is raiment, rich and warm.
Am I imprisoned, it is ranges wide;
Or tempest-tossed, a shelter from the storm.
Would I adventure, 'tis a gallant sea;
Or would I rest, it is a flowery lea.

Dr. Amos R. Wells

The Bible is something all Christians need, I know if I don't have the Bible in the morning my whole day is thrown off. I am so thankful for the Bible. The Bible is our food and water, without it we can not live. It feeds our souls so we may be more like Him! I know this is kind of off topic but this is one of my favorite Bible verses:

''The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the path of righteousness
for his name sake.
Yea, though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table for me in the presence of my enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The Twenty-Third Psalm

Wow, isn't that a wonderful verse. I just love it. This verse always makes my heart overflow with joy!:)
