Willa Carpenter, who serves as the Human Relations Liaison Director for our firm, and who may just be our most important employee, has been drawn lately to Psalm 37 which deals with “The Heritage of the Righteous.” Willa, who does a tremendous job for the firm, says this Psalm offers so much encouragement and hope to God’s people in these very difficult times.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord and He SHALL give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He SHALL bring it to pass. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him
They (God’s children) shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
Susan Decker Bunce, who serves as executive director of Sav-A- Life, sent in her favorite verse. Her organization is a good one that works tirelessly to encourage women to make life-affirming decisions about their unborn children.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
My longtime friend Ray Warren, who serves as president of AARP in Alabama, sent in his favorite verse this month. Ray says the Book of Proverbs has great contemporary advice and that he especially likes the 14th chapter of Proverbs. Ray asked to include the following verse.
He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, But he who honors Him has mercy on the needy.
Alan Worrell, president of Sterling Bank in Montgomery, sent in one of his favorite verses for this issue. Alan, a strong Christian, has been very active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and is involved in many worthwhile projects in the River Region. He is also my good friend.
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
My very good friend Myron Penn says that for years a certain Bible verse has been a source of strength and inspiration to him. Myron, who is winding up a stint in the Alabama Senate, says, “All my life I’ve referred to Psalm 27:1 prior to events, that at first glance, seemed insurmountable, whether they were high school sporting events, the bar exam, my Senate race, or even courtroom trials.”
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
It’s real good to see a prominent public servant such as Myron acknowledge God’s power and authority. Myron is also an outstanding lawyer with the firm of Penn & Seaborn, with offices in Clayton and Union Springs. More importantly, Myron and his wife, Karen, celebrated the birth of their first child, Lawrence Cordell Penn, who was born on August 13th. From all reports the mother and baby are doing fine, but Myron is still trying to get some sleep.
Amy Bowers Creel, who is a friend from Wetumpka, sent in her favorite verse. Amy says this verse reassures her that she belongs to God and that there is nothing that happens in her life that does not in the end work out for the purpose and plan God has for her life. She added that it also reminds her of who is in control and that is not mankind – but God and God alone! In the end, those who love Him will be victorious.
Judith Redmond Henton, who lives in Eufaula, Alabama, sent in her favorite verse for this issue. It was real good to hear from her and I appreciate her sending this verse.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun,
Rev. Carmen Falcione, pastor of The Gathering in Montgomery, sent in the following verse. Carmen gives our firm’s devotion on the fourth Thursday of each month. He is a true man of God in every respect. Carmen is an avid fan of all sports, but especially of those teams located in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
