Genie Pruett, who is an employee in our Mass Torts Section, sent in two of her all-time favorite verses. Genie says the first one tells her that God is with her every step of the way, regardless of the path she takes.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still wa-ters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Psalms 23 KJV
Genie says the other verse is one she has turned to many times and for all kinds of reasons. She says being able to turn everything over to God when life gets so complicated and overwhelming is what’s carried her along this far in life.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
My friend Jerry Glover sent in a verse for this issue.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
2 Corinthians 2:14
Lisa Courson furnished a verse this month. She says the verse in Matthew is very special to her. Since most of Lisa’s family members are in the healing arts, they have always been a family that did what they could for each other and others. Lisa says her grandfather was a rural small town doctor who made house calls and got paid sometimes in chickens and pies, so this speaks to me as a reminder of his legacy to always try to help people without expectations; you do it because it is the right thing to do.
The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
Matthew 25:40 (NIV)
Kesha Nowell also sent in a timely verse this month. She says Philippians 4:13 has been her favorite since her first year of law school. Like lots of law students, Kesha says she was overwhelmed at times with her studies. To add to her stress level, she was driving from Dothan to Montgomery and back every day—about 200 miles roundtrip.
Kesha says her verse has given her so much peace through times that were difficult for her. Of course, she survived law school (even the birth of her daughter during her second year), and Kesha became a lawyer. She says that would not have been possible without the Lord being there to lead and strengthen her every step of the way.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13 NKJV
My friend Laurice Kern sent in a verse for this issue. Laurice worked with Dr. Paul Hubbert for years before she retired. She at-tends St. James United Methodist Church and is very active in the church.
From the rising of the sun to its going down The Lord’s name is to be praised.
Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Dr. Billy Graham, and a dedicated Christian, heads up Angel Ministries. Leigh O’Dell, a lawyer in our Mass Torts Section, worked for Anne and tells me that this lady is the “real deal.” Anne furnished a verse this month.
For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
2 Cor. 4:15
