Chris Glover, a lawyer in our firm’s Atlanta office, furnished verses for this issue. He says these two verses came to him one morning when a dear friend and member of our firm was facing a very difficult situation. Chris says we should always look at difficulty in life “through the lens of faith knowing that it works its good in us and in those with whom God had destined us to share life with.” In the end, Chris says that God is glorified through it all.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
LaSheryl Dotch, a law clerk in our Mass Torts Section, sent in a verse this month. She says it is her daily reminder that no weapons formed against her shall prosper.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. Psalms 91:14-16 KJV
LaBarron Boone, a lawyer in our Personal Injury & Products Liability Section, also sent in four verses this month. He says “in the midst of change, chaos and a world full of evil we all have choices. The one and only constant in this fallen World is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Christ will meet all our needs if we trust in him. My hope and prayer is that everyone will experience the peace and serenity available through Christ Jesus! All we have to do is choose to be a “child of God.” He added: “If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, then today, I pray you choose to be a part of the Family of Jesus Christ.” LaBarron says these verses have helped him and he believes they will help you.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 –
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
“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
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” Proverbs 19:21
Navan Ward Jr., a lawyer in our firm who is also in our Atlanta office, sent in two verses for this issue.
Navan and his family moved to Atlanta. He says Hebrews 8:5 is a great reminder of how much God loves us, no matter how terrible we are, no matter how undeserving we are. He says God’s promise to always have our back and never leave us is truly comforting.
Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! Hebrews 8:5
What shall we say to all of this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side]. Romans 8:31
Navan says Romans 8:31 is his anthem of encouragement whenever he is facing a difficult situation personally or professionally. Truly believing this allows him to have the confidence and courage to not only withstand challenges, but also to thoroughly defeat them because he has God on his side.
