Marc McHenry is one of our firm’s in-house investigators. Before coming to Beasley Allen, Marc rose to the rank of Major with the Alabama State Troopers. Marc, a dedicated Christian, says there are several scriptures that he uses daily.
Don’t ask yourself who will go up to heaven,” (that is, to bring Christ down). “Don’t ask who will go down into the depths,” (that is, to bring Christ back from the dead). Romans 10: 6-7
“This is the message of faith that we spread.” “That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10: 8-9
“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
Pam Sexton, who is the senior Interior Director at Pickwick Antiques located in Montgomery, furnished one of her favorite verses for this issue. Pam is recognized as one of the best in her field of work and, more importantly, she is a dedicated Christian.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Phil 4:6
Estee Morrison, who is married to Rick Morrison, a lawyer in our firm, supplied two verses this month. Estee says they love to read in their house and that she finds herself explaining to their 5 and 7 year olds the meanings of a good number of words throughout the course of a day. Several years ago, Estee says she found a wonderful verse in Colossians that constantly reminds her of the impact of her words. She says it lets her know that speaking with thoughtfulness helps her to give better answers to her children.
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Colossians 4:6
Estee says that Rick works hard to help make sure the products we all use are safe. She says as she watches Rick work to help his clients who are seriously injured or have lost loved ones, she’s reminded that God sees our daily struggles. Estee adds that God gives us all the strength to get things done each day. Estee reminds us that during tough times on his missionary journeys, the apostle Paul wrote encouraging messages to the church in Corinth.
We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed…that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10
Estee says that these verses in Corinthians have been great encouragement to her and to her family. She says they help her remember that God’s plan is always the best plan for her life!
My good friend Rev. Walter Albritton, a pastor at St. James United Methodist Church, furnished some verses this month. Walter says that his favorite Old Testament verse is found in Isaiah. Whenever fear knocks on his door, Walter says this Word of the Lord reminds him that he need not be afraid for his heavenly Father is with him. He will strengthen him and hold him up with His strong hand.
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. Isaiah 41:10
Walter says his favorite New Testament verse is in Ephesians. When his children were young Walter says he and Dean put this verse on the refrigerator, the mantle, the bathroom mirrors, and over the sink in the kitchen. No family can survive unless the members learn to be kind to one another and to forgive each other. Then as a pastor, Walter says he discovered church families cannot survive without kindness and forgiveness!
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
Jamie Collins Doss, a resident of Tennessee, sent in a favorite verse this month. Sara and I have known Jamie for a long time. She and Sara have been prayer partners for several years. Jamie also manufactures a great line of soaps. Her company is Bethesda Skincare and you can get more information on Jamie and her products at Bethesdaskincare.com.
And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ Matthew 25:40
Jason King, who works in our firm’s IT Department, also furnished a timely verse for this issue. It’s always good to get verses from Beasley Allen employees.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:2
