Be Still


Psalm 46:10a

Be still, and know that I am God.    ESV

Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand)

that I am God.   Amplified

Step out of the traffic! Take a long, 
      loving look at me, your High God,   The Message

Cease striving and know that I am God

 New American Standard



More to be desired


The law of the LORD is perfect, 
   reviving the soul; 
the testimony of the LORD is sure, 
   making wise the simple; 
 the precepts of the LORD are right, 
   rejoicing the heart; 
the commandment of the LORD is pure, 
   enlightening the eyes; 
 the fear of the LORD is clean, 
   enduring forever; 
the rules of the LORD are true, 
   and righteous altogether. 
 More to be desired are they than gold, 
   even much fine gold; 
sweeter also than honey 
   and drippings of the honeycomb. 
Moreover, by them is your servant warned; 
   in keeping them there is great reward.

Psalm 19


Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, 
   and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. 
 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; 
   wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 
 Let me hear joy and gladness; 
   let the bones that you have broken rejoice. 
 Hide your face from my sins, 
   and blot out all my iniquities. 
 Create in me a clean heart, O God, 
   and renew a right spirit within me. 
 Cast me not away from your presence, 
   and take not your Holy Spirit from me. 
 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, 
   and uphold me with a willing spirit. 

Psalm 51

Love is...

Love is 2

“If I give everything I own to the poor

and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr,

but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere.

So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do,

I'm bankrupt without love. Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.

Love doesn't strut, Doesn't have a swelled head,

Doesn't force itself on others, Isn't always "me first,"

Doesn't fly off the handle, Doesn't keep score

of the sins of others, Doesn't revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.”

 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 MSG

Keep my Word


I see what you've done. Now see what I've done.

I've opened a door before you that no one can slam shut.

You don't have much strength, I know that;

you used what you had to keep my Word.

You didn't deny me when times were rough.

Revelation 3   The Message

through hard times


All praise to the God and Father of our

Master, Jesus the Messiah!

Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel!

He comes alongside us when we go through hard times,

and before you know it, he brings us alongside

someone else who is going through hard times

so that we can be there for that person

just as God was there for us.
