Our life is a gift from God; What we do with that life is our gift to God.

Don't forget to bump here and there with your favorite verses.

Any verse or Inspirational will be great...

Here is mine for this bump...

Inspirational:
No matter how far you've run from God, He's only a prayer away.

Verse:
Isaiah 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one , to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

I have done awful at keeping up on my memory verses, Maybe this will help bring them back to memory..

I did an EE class with our church a couple of years ago, we had to memorize quite a few different verses, but I have not brought them to mind much and can not remember them.

So what are the theme of the cards? Are we supposed to put biblical sentiments on them? I might have trouble bumping with bible versus since I don't think I even know where my bible is (hangs head down in shame). I can always look some up on the internet though. SO sign me up for 1 spot in full cards!

Vee, how about a spot for me? Love this theme. I have several scripture stamp verses including Matthew 7:7. I don't have a stamp with one of my favorites verses: "But the fruit of the spirit is love,joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control..." Galatians 5:22,23 but I guess I could always have one made!

Act 16:16

And it happened that as we were going to the place of prayer, a certain slave-girl having a spirit of divination met us, who was bringing her masters much profit by fortunetelling.

Act 16:17

Following after Paul and us, she kept crying out, saying, "These men are bond-servants of the Most High God, who are proclaiming to you the way of salvation."

Act 16:18

And she continued doing this for many days. But Paul was greatly annoyed, and turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And it came out at that very moment.

I find this amusing, Here she is telling the truth of why they are there while she is demonized. It amazes me how people knew Jesus and walked with him and still did not believe..

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

I receive a daily devotional every day via email, so if it's ok, I'd like to share my devotional with you. I really look forward to them every day, and I hope you enjoy them too.

Matthew 19:16-22

"Jesus said unto him, "If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me." But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions." (KJV)


Reflection by Kenneth L. Samuel

Having proudly obeyed all of the commandments of Moses, the rich young man in this passage of Scripture nevertheless fails to adhere to the one critical commandment of Christ. It is the commandment to sacrifice one's own material possessions in order to serve the poor and the outcasts. In exchange for the sacrifice of his material treasure, Jesus offers the young man more sublime treasures. But in a world where people determine their self-worth by their net worth, Jesus' offer seems unrealistic and unreasonable, and is most often rejected. Many of us who view our material possessions as the singular sign of God's blessing in our lives would never embrace the self-sacrifice of Jesus. Consequently, the young man's tragedy is our tragedy. We walk away from self-sacrifice with great self-emptiness, for with all of the things we possess in life, without sacrifice for Christ and others, we still have little or nothing to live for.

Prayer

Lord, free us from being possessed by our possessions, so that we can truly attain the things of value in this life and beyond. Amen.

Oh Lorie thank you for sharing, I read to my kid's today about How we need to trust in the Lord now, for we do not know when He will come again.

Mathew 24:23-25, 36-37
23 “Then if any man tells you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or, ‘There,’ don’t believe it. 24 For there will arise false christs, and false prophets, and they will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones. 25 “Behold, I have told you beforehand.

36 But no one knows of that day and hour, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 “As the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

Hi!

Please sign me up for a full card spot!

And here's a Bible verse bump:


"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast."
Ephesians 2 :4-9

Thanks Lorie for sharing that wonderful devotional. It's a great reminder of being good stewards.

Debbie, love the verse you shared with us. Grace is what it's all about - the greatest gift. Whenever I think of "grace" I'm reminded of the acronym:
God's
Riches
At
Christ's
Expense

Vee, thanks for all the verses you give us throughout the day!

Hi Paola! So glad you're joining us!

Yes!!! I have been waiting for another Bible verse card swap. Please sign me up for a spot. I ordered new Bible verse stamps a few months ago in anticipation of another swap like this.

My favorite and I have to constantly remind myself of.........Ps. 46:10 - Be still and know that I am God........

Thanks,

While reading my devotional this morning...this question was asked. It's definitely something to think about and doing something about.........

"We would all do well do ask ourselves a simple question: If God were to write my obituary, what would he record?"

Matthew 19:16-22

"Jesus said unto him, "If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me." But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions." (KJV)


Reflection by Kenneth L. Samuel

Having proudly obeyed all of the commandments of Moses, the rich young man in this passage of Scripture nevertheless fails to adhere to the one critical commandment of Christ. It is the commandment to sacrifice one's own material possessions in order to serve the poor and the outcasts. In exchange for the sacrifice of his material treasure, Jesus offers the young man more sublime treasures. But in a world where people determine their self-worth by their net worth, Jesus' offer seems unrealistic and unreasonable, and is most often rejected. Many of us who view our material possessions as the singular sign of God's blessing in our lives would never embrace the self-sacrifice of Jesus. Consequently, the young man's tragedy is our tragedy. We walk away from self-sacrifice with great self-emptiness, for with all of the things we possess in life, without sacrifice for Christ and others, we still have little or nothing to live for.

Prayer

Lord, free us from being possessed by our possessions, so that we can truly attain the things of value in this life and beyond. Amen.
Oh Lorie, perfect! This is so beautiful and I thank you for sharing. And it's so very true - how we so often can look at the things around us, near us, or want to have and not really truly ever be fulfilled when His Love, His Grace, His abundance in our lives is all powerful. We just need to trust in that, and in Him!

This was my daily devotional today, so I thought I'd share: 2 Corinthians 5:6-10

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil (ESV).

Granted, this particular passage is following 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 in which Paul speaks of how ministry physically wears him out but spiritually is setting up for him an eternal weight of glory. Yet, as Christians, we do understand how important it is to maintain the faith even in times of physical distress and duress. This passage is appropriate for those who maintained their strong faith regardless of these circumstances.


So often I forget that His will be done and wonder why, why, why - I have had enough and not sure how much more I can take! But truly our worries are so little when we look at the big picture of the troubles out in the big world, you know? We need to remember the blessings we have and how they enrich our lives!
