Lisa Harris, who is our firm’s Executive Director, told me that a specific verse has been a tremendous help to her over the past several years. Lisa does a tremendous job for our firm and is a most valuable employee.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Brenda Boman, who is with Alabama Arise, sent in a verse for this issue. Brenda, along with others with ARISE, works hard for the poor in our state. She will be blessed for that work.
We know that all things work together for good to them that love God.
I wrote about the ordeal Josh and Paige Wetzel are facing in another section of this issue. Josh sent in a verse that he feels strongly about and one Josh says he depends on. While the ordeal that Josh and Paige are facing is a tough one, I am convinced they will come through it.
“For I will restore health to you And heal you of your wounds,” says the LORD, “Because they called you an outcast saying: ‘This is Zion; No one seeks her.”’
Penny Marcum, who was a longtime legal secretary with our firm before moving to Chattanooga, Tenn. in 1998, sent in a verse for this issue. Penny has a grandson, Cade, who has been battling vision problems for several years. He has made a miraculous recovery.
Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.
Penny says there are many more scriptures that she has prayed for Cade’s healing as well. One being Jeremiah 33:3, in which God says: “Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things that you don’t know.” Penny believes praying scripture is the most important thing we can do besides telling others about Jesus and leading them to Him.
Soo Seok Yang, a staff attorney in our firm, furnished a verse for this issue. Soo Seok says that God has blessed his family this year with a new addition – a precious daughter, Yoojin Johanna. Soo Seok and his wife Doh Ah Kim, celebrated their fifth anniversary recently, beginning what he says is a new chapter in their lives. Soo Seok says he is constantly reminded and encouraged that God is our hope and help.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Lindsey Meadows, a law clerk in our Mass Torts Section, also furnished a verse for this issue. Lindsey reminds us that the Bible says that to love God is to follow His commandments. She pointed out that what we say out loud to others, or even mutter to ourselves, is a reflection on what we think and, she says, how we think about things. And how we think about things reflects what we do. For Lindsey, understanding the connection between the meditations of her heart, her words, and her actions is important to her faith.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight. Oh Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
