Bible Verses about God to take you through the Week

pastoral scene

I’m listing some of my favorite Bible verses to take you through the week of October 8 – 14. Because I’m still trying to figure out copyright laws, I’ll be using the King James Version that I found here. Sometimes I change a word to reflect modern English language. (I.e., I changed “sheweth” to “shows.”)

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handy work (Psalm 19:1).”

“The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness unto children’s children (Psalm 103:17).”

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might (Deuteronomy 6:5).”

“For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations (Psalm 100:5).”

“For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…(Romans 1:20; Read Romans 1:18-32.)”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).”

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light (Genesis 1:1-3).”

“And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away…(Revelation 21:3-4; Read Revelation 21:3-8)”

There is so much more. I really love the Bible, the inspired Word of God (II Timothy 3:16-17), and hope you do, too.

Counting Cows Devotional Thought

When I was a girl growing up in south Alabama, my dad practiced counting cows. Yep, he had about 75 head–that’s cattle farm terminology for 75 cows and calves– that he counted whenever he drove the tractor down the field road, over the railroad tracks, and through the gate. Then he would start counting cows.… Continue Reading

What a Blue Cross and a Gray Stone Taught Me about Peace

Way back when I was a girl growing up in rural Alabama, I used to visit Papa and Grandmother Lindsey’s house a lot. They lived just through the cow pasture and up the hill from us–an easy walk. Invariably, Papa would be on the phone, hashing it out with his insurance–Blue Cross and Blue Shield… Continue Reading

Deep Waters — A Devotional Thought for Monday

In Psalm 69:1-2, the Psalmist experiences something that we all go through every now and again–deep waters. He says, “Save me, O God; for the waters have come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I have come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me (KJV, Psalm… Continue Reading

Remembering to be Kind

It’s nasty up in Washington, D.C. There are peeps in high places who are trying to destroy each other. They’re more concerned with selfish ambition than the greater good of the people of the United States of America and the world. I won’t name names. I get so frustrated some times! But here’s the thing…… Continue Reading

The It Girl

  You know who I’m talking about. You see her on Facebook or on the magazine covers in the store. She’s the It girl, and she has it all together. She’s the one with the ‘hundred-watt smile. Her kids are always happy and clean, and her husband adores her. Maybe she’s online plugging their trip to… Continue Reading
