This year for my mother-in-law, we decided to give her a year long Birthday present. So every month, each family sends her a themed scrapbook page. Her birthday was September 9th and we'll continue until next September. November's theme is "Favorite Bible Verse". Obviously, every part of the bible is equally important, but there are certain verses that touch our hearts at different times in our lives. I want to share some of the verses that I thought of when trying to decide on my November scrapbook page:
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
If you really listen to what the bible says, it's amazing how powerful the words can be.
