At my church, which I hands down LOVE, our Senior Pastor encouraged us as believers to write out a personal, biblical theology of God. These are the truths of Christ that we have personally experienced, those that resonate with us during joy and trial. I want to share mine with you, and encourage you to write out your own. I have a copy of this in my Bible, hanging up in my cubicle at the church, and one on my nightstand. For moments when I am overwhelmed, joyful, etc. I look to these verses to remind me of who I am and who my God is...
