Andy Birchfield, who heads up our firm’s Mass Torts Section, supplied a timely verse this month. Andy says God speaks a gentle reminder to him through this passage. God whispers for Andy to keep his eyes on Jesus at all times. Andy has been extremely busy in his work and is in a most stressful field of law. Andy says through all the demands that seem to press in on him, he is reminded to view all things through the lens of the cross.
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race set that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
Rhon Jones, who heads up our firm’s Toxic Torts Section, sent in the following verse. As you know from past issues, Rhon has been our lead lawyer in the BP litigation.
My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. James 5:19-20.
Lisa Courson, a lawyer in our firms’ Mass Torts Section, furnished two verses for this issue. She describes Job 26:7 as breathtaking. Lisa says it should remind us of the awesome power of God.
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. Job 26:7
Lisa says when she and her brother used to fight as children, her mother would tell them, “when you hurt each other, you hurt me, and when you hurt each other you also hurt yourselves.” Lisa says that we must all remember that we are all God’s children, and that He loves each of us, and when we hurt our brothers, we hurt ourselves, and we also hurt our Father in Heaven. Lisa did add that the fights were not serious ones and were infrequent.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Romans 6:15
And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. 1 John 4:21 KJV
Bob Mount, who has been a long time friend of mine, sent in the following verse for this issue.
And God gave Solomon wisdom and exceedingly great understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore. Thus Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the men of the East and all the wisdom of Egypt. For he was wiser than all men — than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol; and his fame was in all the surrounding nations. He spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were one thousand and five. Also he spoke of trees, from the cedar tree of Lebanon even to the hyssop that springs out of the wall; he spoke also of animals, of birds, of creeping things, and of fish. And men of all nations, from all the kings of the earth who had heard of his wisdom, came to hear the wisdom of Solomon. 1 Kings 4:29-34
Helenor T. Bell, the Project Manager for Economic Development for the Town of Hayneville, also sent us two verses this month. Ms. Bell says the first scripture lets her know that as long as she stays on the plan that God has for her she knows that she is safe and able to stand in faith and expect God’s best for her life.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Ms. Bell adds that with the scripture set out above she knows that when her situations are given to God, He is then in control. She adds that by the power of the Holy Spirit, she can be strong and confident as she makes her journey through this life.
Bridgette Singleton, an intake specialist with our firm, sent in the following verses. She says Psalms 121:1 was a favorite scripture of her mother, who died just a little more than a year ago. Bridgette says this verse reminds her so much of her mother and the faith she had in God. It is now one of Bridgette’s favorites.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. Psalms 121:1
Bridgette says Isaiah 25:2 is also one of her favorite scriptures because the Lord has been so good to her. She says God has brought her through so many things and that she can’t thank Him or praise Him enough for that.
O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25:1
Helen Johnson, another good friend, furnished two verses for this issue. She found the message in Hebrews 13:2 to be both interesting and timely. Helen also says that verse in Jeremiah has helped her greatly. Helen and her husband Guy attend St. James United Methodist Church and are members of the Frazier Sunday School Class.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
