"For the Word of God is alive and active. 
sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul
and spirit, joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and
attitudes of the heart. 
(Hebrews 4:12  NIV)




Sorrow Not   1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 (KJV)

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren,
concerning them which are asleep,
that ye sorrow not, that ye sorrow not,
even as others which have no hope.

For if we believe that
Jesus died and rose again,
even so them also which sleep in Jesus
will God bring with Him, will God bring with Him.


Comfort    2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (KJV)

Blessed be God,
even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 

Who comforteth us in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to comfort them,
comfort them which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith we ourselves
are comforted of God.


For Good    Genesis 50:20 (NIV)

You intended to harm me, but
God intended it for good to accomplish
what is now being done, the saving of many lives.


The Lord Will Receive Me   Psalm 27:10 (NIV)

Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me,


The Lord Will Take Me Up    Psalm 27:10 (KJV)

When my father and my mother forsake me,
then the Lord will take me up.


A False Witness    Proverbs 19:5 (NIV)

A false witness will not go unpunished,
and whoever pours out lies,
whoever pours out lies will not go free.


He That Speaketh Lies    Proverbs 19:5 (KJV)

A false witness shall not be unpunished,
and he that speaketh lies,
he that speaketh lies shall not escape.


Consider Him    Hebrews 12:3 (NIV)

Consider Him who endured
such opposition from sinners,
so that you will not grow weary,
will not grow weary and lose heart.


Consider Him That Endured    Hebrews 12:3 (KJV)

Consider Him that endured
such contradiction of sinners
against Himself, lest ye be wearied,
lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.


God Meant It Unto Good     Genesis 50:20 (KJV)

But as for you, ye thought evil against me;
but God meant it unto good,
to bring to pass, as it is this day,
to save much people alive.


Forgive    Mark 11:24-25 (KJV)

And when ye stand praying, forgive,
if ye have ought against any:
that your Father also which is in heaven
may forgive you your trespasses


My Grace    2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

But He said to me, 
"My grace is sufficient for you,
for My power is made perfect in weakness."

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly
about my weaknesses,
so that Christ's power may rest on me.
