My Seven Words: Verses May 17, 2012

Filed under: Bible,Simply Me — Amy Scott @ 8:00 am

I finally did the other part of my homework from the Bethel Church Ladies Retreat. The first part was finding a way to get your core value words in front of you. I shared a few blogs back about how I used http://www.wordle.net to make a word cloud. I used that image as the background on my desktop. I love it! I honestly just like to stare at and repeat the words to myself. I know that might sound crazy, but I love these words! They hold deep meaning to me! The other part of the homework was find verses to attach to each of the words. Now not every word I chose is in the Bible, but I found verses that captured the heart of the message. Here are my verses:

  • Acceptance
    • Hebrews 2:10-11
      • In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters.
  • Compassion
    • Psalm 112:4
      • Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
    •  Matthew 9:36
      • When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
  • Courage
    • Deuteronomy 31:6
      • Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
  • Encouragement
    • Romans 15:4
      • For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
    • Philemon 1:7
      • Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.
  • Integrity
    • Psalm 41:12
      • In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.
    • Proverbs 10:9
      • The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.
  • Joy
    • Psalm 19:8
      • The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
    • 1 Thessalonians 5:16
      • Be joyful always;
  • Vision
    • Genesis 46:2
      • And God spoke to Israel in a vision at night and said, “Jacob! Jacob!” “Here I am,” he replied.
    • Proverbs 29:18
      • When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild.
        But whoever obeys the law is joyful.
