Jennifer Aughtman, who is in charge of the youth department at St. James United Methodist Church, sent in one of her favorite verses.
Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards his soul will be far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender.
Ann Easley, who works in our firm’s Mass Torts Section, provided two verses for this issue. Ann says these truths from God’s words have helped her get through some difficult times in her life. Even when there seemed to be no available answers, Ann says she was reminded that God’s promises are true, regardless of circumstances.
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 (NIV)
Navan Ward, a lawyer in our Mass Torts Section, also provided verses this month. He says Philippians 4:13 scripture helps him when he feels overwhelmed by his responsibilities. Navan says this verse is a good reminder for him not to worry about anything, but instead to pray about everything that comes his way.
For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.
Navan also says that Romans 13:1 reminds each of us to respect and pray for our government leaders, at every level, regardless of whether we voted for them or not. That’s something we must do.
Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God
Finally, Navan says Romans 8:31 reminds him daily that no matter what obstacles come his way, he can’t lose because God is always on his side.
If God is with us, then who can be against us.
Katy Barker, a Clerical Assistant in the Personal Injury Department, also furnished a verse for this issue. She says this verse is a favorite of hers and is one she says to herself over and over again. Katy, who leads the singing at her church, says it is awesome to know that God never leaves her side. Even when He feels distant and far away, Katy says she knows God is always right beside her. He is also with all of us and that’s a fact.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage, do not be afraid nor dismayed. For the Lord Your God is with you wherever you go.
