I Just Can't Make Up My Mind

Comedian Brian Regan has a bit where he talks about his favorite flavor of snow cone as a child. Grape. Oh, but cherry is also his favorite. So, they are both his favorites. But, maybe grape is his most favorite. He just can’t make up his mind.

I can so relate. I have such a problem trying to figure out my favorite food, my favorite color, or my movie. I also don’t have a favorite Bible verse. So very unreligious of me, isn’t it? Oh, I have a lot of verses that I love, that mean a great deal to me, that minister to me, that overwhelm me. But to pick a favorite, I just can’t seem to do. Sometimes I pick one, but the next time I read the Word, I find another one. Maybe that one will be my favorite. But, then something else comes leaping off the page to me. I just can’t choose. So, they are all my favorites. Yet again, maybe this one is my favorite.

At this time, my favorite verse to convict me to pieces is 1 Corinthians 9:27, “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” Yikes!

My favorite verse to keep on keeping on is Joshua 1:7, “Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.”

My favorite verse of promise is Psalm 103:2-5, with an emphasis on verse 3 when I’m feeling ill, “who healeth all thy diseases”!

The latest one that grabbed me was a few days ago – Jeremiah 2:11b, “But my people have traded my Glory for empty god-dreams and silly god-schemes.” Ah, so very sad.

My favorite Psalm to sing is Psalm 19:7-11. Or maybe it’s Psalm 150.

Psalm 150:2, “Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.” YES! Maybe this is my most favorite.


  1. LOL, I have the exact same "problem"... but maybe it's not really a problem. After all, we'd never be expected to have one of our children be a favorite, right?

    They're all good (which I think was your point ;-))

  2. I totally hear you and agree with Persuaded! Sometimes I express more love to one of my children who happens to be in greater need yet conversely some Bible verses speak more of God's love to me when I am in greater need in a certain area. Does any of this make sense or should I go back to bed??? LOL

  3. They're all my favorites. Like my kids. All my favorites.

    I can so relate to this, Lady Dorothy!! "Favorites" are hard for me to pick. "Bests" are too.

    It never fails... each December 25th, at about 10pm, I always say to my beloved... "What a wonderful Christmas. I do believe this has been the best one we've had!".

    Then I say the same thing the next year... same bat time, same bat channel. *lol*

    Love you~ Andrea
