Today, I asked everyone’s favorite Bible verses,
and they wrote down without any hesitation.
Even some of them memorized all of the long passages !
First, my favorite is from Isaiah chapter 41, verse 10.
It saids, ‘So do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand’
Dawn’s favorite is from Psalm 139.
‘ Where can I go from your spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.’
Annie’s favorite is from Romans chapter 8 verse 28.
It saids, ‘ 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.’
For Leila, it is Psalm 37 verse 4.
‘Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart’
Geraldine’s favorite is from 1 Corinthians chapter 13.
‘ Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protect, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
And now these three remain :
Faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.’
What a coinsidence !
Mila and Noemi have a same favorite Bible verse.
Guess what?! It’s from Isaiah.
Chapter 43, verse 1 – 5.
‘But now, this is what the LORD says –
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel
Fear not, for I have reedemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters;
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you’ll not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
Crush and Seba in your stead.
Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you,
I will give men in exchange for you,
and people in exchange for your life.
Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the east
and gather you from the west.’
