Susan Baker, a legal assistant in our firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, says she has several favorite scriptures, but none more so than Psalms 46:10. Susan says life is so hectic with everybody in such a rush, that we all need to slow down and listen to God and seek wisdom. There are lots of folks in need and Susan says this allows us to respond to the needs of others with a servant’s heart. She says we would be better prepared if we would just be still, listen and find our confidence and strength from God.
Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
Ben Baker, a lawyer in our firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, also furnished a verse for this issue.
The Lord is my strength and my song.
Cole and Joy Portis are the proud parents of eight children. As our readers will already know, Cole is the head of our firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section. His wife, Joy, is a very busy stay-at-home mom. She sent in several of her favorite verses for this issue. Joy says her desire is to constantly keep her eyes on Jesus Christ. Joy says the Lord tells us children are truly blessings. Parenting is a great responsibility and Joy says, as a mother of eight, it can be overwhelming. But she says Isaiah 55:8 always encourages her to see each of her children as the Lord sees them – as blessings. Joy says each of her children, each uniquely wonderful, are blessings from the Lord! These are Joy’s verses:
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy in the man who has his quiver full of them.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts; Nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord.
Kelli Alfreds, a lawyer in our firm, also furnished several verses for this issue. She says the verses have been her favorites during challenging times. According to Kelli, these verses contain promises she constantly leans on. Kelli says her favorite verse is Phil. 4:13, which is the one she says was repeated over and over while she was studying for the bar exam:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
