Freda Woodman, who attends St. James United Methodist Church with Sara and me, sent in her two favorite verses for this issue. Freda taught school for a number of years, but now works at Pickwick Antiques in Montgomery. She also is in charge of the “Blanket Ministry” at St. James, a program that provides prayer blankets to folks who have a special need, and that has been a blessing for lots of folks. These are Freda’s verses:
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the LORD forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.
My good friend Randy Helms says his favorite verse is one that should excite any Christian, and I certainly agree with him. Randy, who grew up in my hometown of Clayton, now lives in Cecil, which is located east of Montgomery. He also is a member of St. James United Methodist Church where Randy, Lisa and his children are very active.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.
1 Corinthians 2:9
Bill Robertson, one of our lawyers, shared another verse this month from one of his daily devotionals. Bill has a daily devotional that he says he can relate to each day. He enjoys sharing them with his friends and also with our readers on occasion. Bill is submitting the verse below, and his thoughts about its content, follow:
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Bill says, like all of us, he has sinned. But he points out that this Psalm tells us that God’s love and forgiveness are far greater than any wrong we could have ever done. God has provided a remedy for the burden we carry because of our sins, overruling sin with mercy and love. Even though it’s true that people, places and things can spur past memories, our past mistakes can become stepping stones to deeper devotion and service. Bill says he hopes this reminder will be received in the right way and will help us understand that God will forgive our sins and wipe the slate clean if we will only ask Him.
Debbie Cunningham, who works in the firm’s Consumer Fraud Section, furnished a verse for this issue.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8: 38 – 39
Tim Fiedler, a lawyer in the Consumer Fraud Section, furnished a favorite verse for this issue.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Valerie Scroggins, who also works in our Consumer Fraud Section, furnished a verse for this issue.
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.
Parker Miller, one of our lawyers who has been busy trying to help victims of the Gulf oil disaster, furnished a verse for this issue:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Tabitha Dean, another of our employees who works in the Mass Torts Section, furnished a verse for this issue:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Danielle Mason, a lawyer in our Mass Torts Section, furnished a verse this month. While Danielle has been very busy, she still has time to honor her Lord and Savior daily.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Since our readers might wonder why we have included so many verses from folks in our firm, I will explain why we do it. First, it’s good to know we have folks associated with our firm who love the Lord and who aren’t afraid to let folks both inside and outside the firm know about it. In addition, I also believe it’s important to share the Gospel and I believe this is a good way to do it. The fact that we get so many comments each month on this part of the Report confirms my belief. We encourage our readers to also share their favorite verses with us.
