I was given a gift by Hari Bhajan Kaur on the occasion of my birthday. It was a journal which contains verses from the bible, which I would like to share here.
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another.
1 John 1:7
Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
I can do everything from Him who gives me strength
Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Everything is possible for him who believes
Trust in the Lord with all Your Heart and Lean not on Your Own Understanding
My soul praises the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles…
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
A friend loves at all times
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; know and the door will be opened to you
Stop and consider God’s wonders
Let your light shine before men. that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven
My heart took delight in all my work and this was the reward for all my labor
Let us love one another, for love comes from God.
1 John 4:7
The days of the blameless are known to the Lord, and their inheritance will endure forever.
But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
All things are possible with God
He has made everything beautiful in its time
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped
…whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things
