Love Blooms Here

I am so grateful for all the wonderful comments I got yesterday. I thank all of you who made the time to come here and celebrate with me Word Filled Wednesday!

So I'd like to share all of you 13 wonderful and uplifting Bible verses...

For the gift of friends...

(1) A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. - Prov 17:17

(2) A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. - Prov 18:24

(3) Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. - Rom 12:15

In it is always a comfort to know that in times of adversity, we can always seek Him...

(4) He heals the brokenhearted, and binds their wounds. - Psalm 147:3

(5) It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. -Psalm 118:8

(6) Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. -Jeremiah 33:3

(7) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. - Epistle of James 4:10

(8) Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. - John 16:33

And that in times of trouble, God stands firm...oh what a joy!

(9) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed. - 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

(10) Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. - Psalm 138:7

(11) Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. - Matthew 11:28-30

(12) Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you: He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. - Psalm 55:22

(13) Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever. - Psalm 136:26

I also would like this opportunity to invite you all to come back here tomorrow if you have the time, I have a very moving story to share with you all... Though I already did the post, I decided to tie it up with Friday Haiku to give way to Thankful Thursday and Thursday Thirteen today.

And finally, allow me to say this prayer -

Dear God,

Thank you for loving me.

Thank you for blessing me special friends that mean so much to me.

Help me to show them how much I love them and appreciate them.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

I’m sorry I missed your Word Filled Wednesday and will try to remember to check it out later (as time permits) but I’ve been busy and away from home most of this past week so I’m WAY behind! I’ve got my PSE6 class this morning so I’m a bit ‘rushed’ at the moment too … so maybe I’ll catch up over the weekend. I do appreciate ALL of these Bible verses … my favorites here are #s 9-13 because they speak to my heart right now. Thanks so much for the lovely prayer, and I hope you have a great day ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Awesome Scriptures for this Thankful Thursday! Thanks for sharing.

LittlePea said...

Great post! I'll share my very favorite verse from Psalms(I forget the number though)
"Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning"

What a perfect list of verses. These should be written in the cover of everyone's Bible.

AND bless your heart for pouring out your emotion on the Pro-Life issue. If more of us were as outspoken as those fostering the culture of death in the U.S. (ad all over the world!), there wouldn't be over 7 Million stories just like Rowans!

I pray with all I have that women who WANT children are able to conceive and bring them into the world. Keep your eyes on HIM, Mariposa!

Thanks for sending IT Guy. He makes me laugh. So glad you found him. :-)

Happy Thankful Thursday!
