Stephanie Monplaisir, a lawyer in our firm, supplied two life verses that she says she repeats to herself when she faces obstacles. Stephanie works in the firm’s Personal Injury/Products Liability Section.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Sonny Wills, a lawyer in our firm, furnished two verses for this issue. Sonny serves in an Of Counsel role in our Mass Torts Section.
Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls — Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills.
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Laura Jones sent me her favorite verse. Laura is a legal secretary in the firm and works on my floor. She says this psalm teaches us to comfort ourselves in the Lord when difficulties and dangers are greatest. That’s a very true statement.
A song of ascents. I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you — the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Parker Miller, a lawyer in our Toxic Torts Section, has been working on the BP Litigation for five years. He supplied these four verses for this issue.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you; May he send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all of your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. May he grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your purpose. We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions. Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven With the saving strength of His right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and stand upright. Save, Lord! May the King Answer us when we call.
Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn away to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
