Bible Verses

Well, I haven't posted in a while, so I thought I'd post a few Bible verses my mom hung up above the computer desk:

The Lord is my confidence and will keep me from danger.
Proverbs 3:26

The Lord is my strength and my peace. (Not sure what book or verse)

I will speak good words today to ward off anxiety and depression.
Proverbs 12:25

I will use soft answers today to turn away wrath - no harsh words.
Proverbs 15:1

I have power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases through Jesus Christ.
Luke 9:1
^I like that one. It just sounds cool!
Below are a few verses from Romans I found in my moms King James Version:

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Romans 6:14

But we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Romans 5:3-6

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

Well, I guess that's enough for now.
I'll post a.s.a.p!

Some of My Favorite Bible Verses

I haven't posted in awhile, I just haven't really known what to post about. So I decided to post some of my favorite bible verses.

Delight yourself in the Lord,
and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

I delight to do your will, O God;
indeed, your law is within my heart.
Psalm 40:8

Whoever trusts in the Lord,
happy is he.
Proverbs 16:20

What Water Symbolizes... Life?

I asked on a previous post what y'all think water symbolizes. Most of you said that it symbolizes "life" ~ a conclusion I had already come to, but wasn't really sure. So in saying that, you confirmed that.

Water symbolizing life makes since because if you think about it, without water there would be no life. What water and life has to do with me I don't exactly know...
But please tell me if you think of anything else.

Misha said: In the Bible it says something about Living Water, and this one king in the Bible got healed of his leprosy by dipping himself in the Jordan River

Hannah said: Water symbolizes Christian life. Then "come to the river of life and be restored or something along that line"

Zuzu said: In the Bible water basically symbolizes life. As for water being used to describe someone, they probably meant that you are calm, peaceful, graceful, and quiet. So yeah, I guess it is a compliment.

And Sapphira asked if I perceived that as a complement. I don't really know actually. When I first heard it, I was like cool and took it for a compliment. Then I got curious and decided to investigate further.

My friend (who is "like fire") and I like to tease each other about it. Like she'll say, "I make you boil"
I said, "Well, I can put you out!!!"

lol! It was funny!

Thanks for all the feedback! :)

This is going to sound a little weird I know, but I was just wondering, do any of you happen to know what water symbolizes from a Biblical perspective? I looked it up on the internet and found some various results, but I am curious to know if any of you have any thoughts on it at all.
The reason? Because someone told me once that I am, "like water", so I have been wondering what exactly that is supposed to mean. One of my friends was "like fire", but I could understand that.
Well anyway, I would love to have some feedback, so please comment me and tell me what you think.

Bible Verse of The Week

Ellie, Anariel, and I have been each picking out a verse every week to send to each other through email. These are mine and Ellie's (Anariel hasn't sent hers yet):

Ellie's ~
"If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!... Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastes 4:10, 12

Mine ~
Proverbs 15:1
A gentle answer turns away rath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
