Kathy Eckermann, who is my Executive Assistant, sent in a verse for this issue. Kathy says this verse has been on her mind a great deal during this New Year. In order to be changed into the person God wants us to be, Kathy says we must renew our minds through reading his Word. She is correct in saying that’s how we can find His will for our lives.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Krystin McHenry, who is a clerical assistant in our Toxic Torts Section, sent in a verse that she says has a very special meaning to her. It not only gave her strength during some difficult times, but the verse was also her best friend’s favorite verse. Her friend, who died about a year ago, wrote it on everything she ever signed, according to Krystin. The verse is one of the many things that reminds Krystin of her friend.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Stephanie Stephens, a lawyer in our Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, also sent in a verse for this issue. Stephanie handled her very first court hearing in December and said that she was very apprehensive since it was her first real hearing. As she prepared for the hearing, Stephanie says God revealed Isaiah 41:9-10 to her and that she repeated it over and over to herself all weekend. On the day of the hearing, Stephanie says she had complete peace and calm. She says God chose her and chose a path in the legal field for her. And through this verse, Stephanie says God told her not to fear things chosen by Him.
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
Isaiah 41: 9-10
I agree with Stephanie, who says: “What an amazing Father we serve!” It’s unfortunate that many of us fail to recognize that truth.
Garnett Turner, a long time member of St. James United Methodist Church, and a good friend, sent in a verse for this issue. Garnett has been in the insurance business for years and is a good man.
I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
John 15:5, 8
