I'd love to know!

Do you have a favorite Scripture verse? One near and dear to your heart that you reach for when you need a boost, or in times of despair or perhaps great joy? One that you know so well you can recite it backwards, forwards and upside down? I'd love for you to share it!

In fact, if you'll share that verse in a comment here, it'll enter you in a little drawing for one of these:

"Go on up to the mountain of mercy..."
With the opening lyrics of Raise Up the Crown, you embark on a journey through the three days that changed the course of history & eternity. Beginning with "Beautiful, Scandalous Night", the album moves you through a unique experience from songs on the sacrifice of Christ (Friday), to the glorious celebration of new life (Sunday) with "Easter Song". Find a quiet place, listen from beginning to end, & reflect on the Passion, Redemption, and Glory.

This is a wonderful truly is one that you will want to add to your collection!

What's that you say? How can you pick just one favorite verse? You have several beloved verses and you simply cannot choose...'s this for a solution?

Everyone may post up to 5 of their best loved Scripture verses. My only condition is that you write the verse out in its entirety so that we may all breathe in the Word of God and worship as we read. So again, please don't just quote Book, chapter and verse, okay?

Ready...set...share! I'm looking forward to reading the verses that are on your heart. I have a feeling I'm about to be richly blessed and I hope you will be too...

I'll close this post with two of my favorite verses. The first was a favorite of both my Sweet Hubby and me. In fact, it is inscribed on our headstone.

I'll leave this post open to comments until midnight Sunday (EST) 3/21/10. The winner will be selected using, once again, the random integer thingamabob. I'll put up a post announcing the winner by noon, Monday (EST). And don't forget to include some way to contact you in one of your comments!

Oh...and did I mention that I just may have more than one CD to give away? You never know - I'm unpredictable that way!

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NLT

Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT

Psalm 23
1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Romans 8:

35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

"Sing, O barren woman,
you who never bore a child;
burst into song, shout for joy,
you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
than of her who has a husband,"
says the LORD.

Isaiah 54:1

Unknown said...

4 "Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth
and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.

5 For your Maker is your husband—
the LORD Almighty is his name—
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
he is called the God of all the earth.

6 The LORD will call you back
as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit—
a wife who married young,
only to be rejected," says your God.

7 "For a brief moment I abandoned you,
but with deep compassion I will bring you back.

8 In a surge of anger
I hid my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness
I will have compassion on you,"
says the LORD your Redeemer.
Isaiah 54:4-8

Posting this for my friend, Marlene, who notified me via Facebook that she was having problems accessing her Google account...sorry Marlene! Here it is:

"Yes, I do Gigi. Lately with Bill's situation and my health situation I have quoted many times over and over in my mind "He can do exceedingly, abundant, above and beyond what we could ever ask or imagine". That has given me hope through our circumstances of late."
