Proverbs 27:10 (NIV)

31 07 2009


Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father,
and do not go to your brother’s house when disaster strikes you—
better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.


Isaiah 40:6-8 (NLT)

A voice said, “Shout!”
I asked, “What should I shout?”

“Shout that people are like the grass.
Their beauty fades as quickly
as the flowers in a field.

The grass withers and the flowers fade
beneath the breath of the Lord.
And so it is with people.

The grass withers and the flowers fade,
but the word of our God stands forever.”

James 5:19-20 (NIV)

My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and
someone should bring him back,

remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way
will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins.

Psalm 123 (NIV)

28 07 2009


I lift up my eyes to you,
to you whose throne is in heaven.

As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the LORD our God,
till he shows us his mercy.

Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us,
for we have endured much contempt.

We have endured much ridicule from the proud,
much contempt from the arrogant.

Psalm 39:1-5 (NIV)

27 07 2009


I said, “I will watch my ways
and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
as long as the wicked are in my presence.”

But when I was silent and still,
not even saying anything good,
my anguish increased.

My heart grew hot within me,
and as I meditated, the fire burned;
then I spoke with my tongue:

Show me, O LORD, my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting is my life.

You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Each man’s life is but a breath.

Mark 6:31-32 (NIV)

24 07 2009


Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.

Proverbs 30:18-19 (NLT)

23 07 2009


There are three things that amaze me—
no, four things that I don’t understand:

how an eagle glides through the sky,
how a snake slithers on a rock,
how a ship navigates the ocean,
how a man loves a woman.
