Happy New Year!

I look at this sign often since it is in my bathroom, (smiley face) reflecting about the words and then I thought what if I put bible verses that go along with this sign!  ENJOY!

the essence of lifeThe plaque is a version of William Arthur Ward quotes.

God Bless and I hope you have an amazing year knowing you are deeply loved!  Tina

The essence of life is to care,  

Philippians 2:4   “not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others”

Romans 12:10 “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

Proverbs 21:13 “Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out and not be answered”

The secret of life is to dare,

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

2 Timothy 1:7 “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

The adventure of life is to learn,

Proverbs 18:15 “The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.”

Proverbs 1:5 “let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance”

2 Timothy 3:17 “always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

The challenge of life is to change,

Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Romans 8:5 “Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.”

Proverbs 3:5-6   “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

The joy of life is to Love. 

1 Corinthians 16:14 “Do everything in love.”

John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

1 John 4:7 “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”
