Made for This

by Macy Johnson

“Blessed are they who keep His statutes

and seek Him with all their heart.”

(Psalm 119:2 NIV)


A special friend, fellow writer and Bible scholar, informed me she started memorizing one Bible verse a day and suggested I give it a try. I pondered the thought the next morning during my devotions and selected Psalm 119. On the second day, I wrote verse 2 in my designated notebook and asked God to reveal Himself in this process. The most amazing thought came over me – “You were made for this!”

he is a new creation,

the old has gone, the new has come!”

(2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV)


On an episode of Heartland on Netflix, Amy gently guided a potential police horse through obstacles on the training ground. The skittish horse bucked and whinnied, but Amy’s persistence paid off.

“What a wretched man I am!

Who will rescue me from this body of death?”

(Romans 7:24 NIV)


In my daughter’s neighborhood lives a dog who is a major pest. Dodger wants you, or anyone within his vision, to throw a stick for him over and over and over. Don’t dare pick up the slimy piece of wood he drops at your feet. He will dance around you and try to entice you to play his game, but don’t give in, or you’re stuck!

“Direct me in the path of your commands,

for there I find my delight.”

(Psalm 119:35 NIV)


I drove away from the Senior Center after a fun afternoon playing Bridge with friends. I maneuvered my car into my favorite spot at the nearby grocer, turned it off, and traipsed inside to gather supplies.
