“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it
May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make His face shine upon you; May the Lord turn His face toward you and give you His peace.
That's an awesome scripture, I want to live everyday with the image in my mind that I am looking face to face with God and that gives me the most awesome peace. I even imagine that He has blue eyes just like mine. I just love Him so much !!!
Hallelujah, I have church service so I'm heading out.
Be blessed tonight and think about God's light shining on you !!!
Blessings to all .. Lisa

1. Luke 1:37 - For with God nothing shall be impossible. (God is sovereign in everything. He IS able to do everything according to HIS will).
2. 1st Samuel 12:24: Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things He hath done for you. (This was my Pastor's favorite passage before He went to be with the Lord 9/14/08. It reminds me of him and I still miss him.)
3. Ephesians 4:32: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
I haven't gotten there yet, but it is certainly something I strive for.
4. Galatians 6:9: And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (I was a young mother of 5 with a full time job and an kind but alcoholic husband,sometimes this verse was all I had to cling to...)
5. Psalm 56:3: What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. (This is the first verse I remember memorizing)

Proverbs 3:5 and 6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. I had been dealing with thoughts that I just couldn't let go of no matter what I did. One morning as soon as I open my eyes that scripture came to me and I knew that God was telling me to stop trying to figure things out on my own and to trust in Him.
From Isaiah: No weapon formed against you shall prosper.
This means weapons WILL be formed against us. We WILL be under spiritual attack as we serve the Lord. These weapons, no matter what they are, shall NOT prevail. Through Christ we are MORE than conquorers. I need have NO fear because the victory is already mine in Jesus.
Great thread idea, Shelly!!
There is nothing we can do to make God love us more; there is nothing we can do to make God love us less. -- Philip Yancey
This helps me when my life is turned upside down,all I can do is surrender all to GOD.Because stressing over bills,marriage, finances can be a never ending story at times but giving it all to him knowing that when it's all said and done he's in CONTROL!!!
Psalm:139:14 I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me.Everything you do is MARVELOUS!!! of this I have no DOUBT!!!
2 Corinthians 12:9 My grace is enough it is all you need, my strength comes into it's own in your weakness.
taken from a bible called the message
2 Corinthians 12:9 My strength is sufficient for you, for power is perfect in weakness.
taken from the New American Standard bible.
I read both bibles, just wanted to give reference to where it came from.
WHY DO YOU RELATE TO IT? During a time when I was trying to over come a stronghold I was reading the bible. This verse spoke to me. I needed God's help, and I was asking for it daily. But, I was struggling.
WHAT MEANING HAS IT BROUGHT INTO MY LIFE? I don't have to buy a book, listen to a talk show,rely on my friend's advice. All I have to do is go to God about everything I need help with; no matter if it is a bad hair day, or a bad Monday.
This verse reminds me that when I am at my weakest, God is the strongest.
IN WHAT WAYS HAS IT HELPED YOU? It helped me over come my stronghold. It took me a several, several months to over come my stronghold. It was not until I COMPLETELY and REPEATEDLY relied on God,only then did I reach victory!
A lot of people have read the bible and found a verse which helps them so much and they can really intensify with it. For some people a verse?es help them throughout their life time.
What is your favorite verse? Why do you relate it it?
What meaning has it brought into your life?
In what ways has it helped you?
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO GIVE THE LOCATION (the name of the book, chapter/verse #) I AM MORE INTERESTED IN WHICH VERSE. i can not quote the bible and give the location. I use a web site called biblegateway.com It has helped me find numerous things, a great tool!
