    Good day:

    As a follower of Jesus, here is my understanding:

    As God is a trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we are a trinity in that we have a physical body, a soul, and a spirit.

    To me, the verse talks about our giving our spirit to God; we surrender. More of Him, and less of us.

    In relation to the conversation Jesus had with Nicodemus in John 3, being born again relates to this verse as it is our spirit that is dead with Christ Jesus being made alive through Him.

    Thank you.

    This phrase-- "Into thine hand, I commend my spirit" --is seen in both Psalm 31:5 and Luke 23:46. In Psalm, the writer is acknowledging the surrender of their soul to God. In Luke, Jesus is speaking on the cross moments before he dies and is turning over the future of His spirit, soon to depart his body, to His father. Interestingly, the Psalm version, which includes the phrase "thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, God of truth" has a great deal to do with what Christ was doing on the cross. While this part of the Psalm was not spoken in Luke, Christ's actions redeemed a condemned race into eternal life, and the entire Psalm reflects that if we are willing to give up our souls to Him, we can partake in that.

    There are so many incredible verses, it's hard to pick just one. So I don't! :-)

    They come and go as life comes and goes. The ones that have been on my mind for some time, however, are Psalm 17:8: "Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings", and Psalm 91:4: "He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart".

    Life is difficult. Nursing often puts people in the middle of that difficulty. I attempt to consistantly seek my own refuge in the shadow of the wings as I deal with a demanding schedule, seriously ill patients, out-of-touch managers, angry coworkers, unrealistic demands, and the suffering we see daily at the bedsides of the ill and ailing. When I have patients at the end of life when there is nothing left for my earthly hands to do, I have turned my dying patients over to the shadow of the wings. In general, I pray that when patients come under my care, regardless of what they believe, that they would know peace in that gentle shadow.

    Hey luvmysoldier,

    I am not sure what you have in mind when it comes to Bible scriptures for nurses, but the following always makes me think of nursing and unity through faith in Christ. It is my favorite couple of verses.
    Blessings,
    Suzie

    "Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind." Philippians 2:1-2

    I liked this post. Just wanted to add a verse, which is very touching:

    Ephesians 3:20
    20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us

    And what a wonderful power that is! As the apostle Paul said to those Philippian saints:

    Philippians 4:13
    13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me

    Paul's prison epistles, namely, Ephesians, Colossians, Philippians and 2 Timothy are full of such wonderful truth! Thank you for sharing. I particularly love this verse!
