Need a treat?

Everyone in this house is sick.  It is way too hot outside and I am borderline grumpy.  I need a treat so I decided instead I will give one away.  I absolutely love to see the Bible through other people's eyes.  I could pass over a verse hundreds of times, but when somebody shares that same exact verse with me it completely ministers to my heart in a way I wasn't expecting.  I am looking for verses with the themes of Faith, Hope or Grace.  Type me your full favorite verse in the comments section and I will randomly pick a winner on Wednesday April 30th.  The special winner will get a sign sent to them that says the same word as their verse.  Get your Bibles out!  Get a treat!

  3. I so totally agree with allikaye's mama.....Here's one that has to be on the list:
    Matthew 17:20....and Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have FAITH as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
    Thank you for sharing your FAITH with blog-land....you are an awesome inspiration....
    Creative blessings, Debbie ( Mom to Joy-full-ness)

  4. My mother in law always claims this scripture for my husband and I... It is always such an encouragement for me, I want it on my wall... So maybe I will win a sign with this very scripture! ~Jen

    Daniel 3:12
    Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

  8. Okay I LOVE this post! I felt like I had a little bible study by myself:) Thank you for this.
    I know you said to pick one of the words Grace, Hope or Faith. I'm going to be an exception to the rule:) I did the words Grace, Joy and Faith these are the middle names of all my girls!

    It is neat to know that I have friends I may never meet this side of Heaven! Thank you for being sooooo sweet!

    GRACE:
    Acts 20:24
    24.However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.

    JOY:
    Psalm 5:11
    11.But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you.

    FAITH:
    Mark 8:12
    12.He sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, no sign will be given to it."

  9. Wow - great verses!

    How about these?

    "Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality." Romans 12:9-12 (NKJ)

    AND

    "Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us." Romans 5:5 (NKJ)
