On Sunday, Dec. 13, 2015, Pastor Justin Floyd, the Youth Pastor at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH), preached his last sermon. He accepted a calling to a church in Georgia and will be moving this week, along with his dear wife, Catie.

Pastor Justin is truly loved by everyone at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH). His warmth, wisdom, dedication and sense of humor makes him a one-of-a-kind pastor. We have been blessed to have him serve as pastor at our church!

Here is a collage of photos of Pastor Justin from the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) that shows his wonderful personality! The beautiful woman in the photo is his precious wife, who serves alongside him.

Please say a prayer for Pastor Justin as he relocates from the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) to his new church home in Georgia!

In Christ’s Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

P.S. The First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) is the church home for Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team.

Struggling with forgiveness?

Here is what Joel Osteen writes about forgiveness in his daily devotional on September 3rd:

Forgive Others

“As followers of Christ, our character should mirror His character. We should be helpful, kind and tender, understanding and loving to one another. Most of all, we should be extending forgiveness in the same way that Christ extends forgiveness toward us. In other words, we need to forgive unconditionally. But many times, people say they won’t forgive until the other person says they are sorry. Or, they won’t forgive because they think somehow they are getting that person back.                                                                                But the only person who is hurt by your unforgiveness is you! When you hold unforgiveness, it blocks God’s forgiveness and keeps you locked up in the hurt and pain.”

For a larger view, click on the Scripture Pictures photo of Isaiah 61:7 called: “Double the Honor!”

Instead of your shame, you will have double the honor…and everlasting joy will be yours.

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry under an old, abandoned bridge “that leads to nowhere” close to an isolated strip of beach near Ventura, California. The rushing ocean surf reminds Henry of God’s power to heal us of our shame and open our hearts to forgiveness of others.

Scriptures for an Attitude of Gratitude

Scripture-Pictures-52Scriptures for an Attitude of Gratitude

As Christians, we’re called to be thankful in all situations. Although we may not have power over many of the events that happen in our lives, we still have the choice to respond to situations with a bitter spirit or a grateful heart.

Some Biblical quotes on gratitude include:

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

 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Ways to  increase our personal gratitude:

– Start a daily gratitude journal by listing 3 things you are grateful to have in your life.

– Send a note to your pastors thanking them specifically for how they minister to you.

– Write an e-mail or text to thank  five people who have impacted your life.

– Volunteer in your community and observe how  people are thankful for what little they have.

In His Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Afraid of what you hear on the news?

Take a look at what Sarah Young wrote in her devotional book, Jesus Calling, for December 28th. She writes “love letters” from Jesus to us:

I am Your refuge and Strength, an ever-present Help in trouble. Therefore you don’t need to be afraid of anything – not even cataclysmic circumstances. The media are increasingly devoted to fear-inducing subject matter: terrorism, serial killings, environmental catastrophes. If you focus on such dangers and forget that I am your Refuge in all circumstances, you will become increasingly fearful. Everyday I manifest My grace in countless places and situations, but the media take no notice. I shower not only blessings but also outright miracles on your planet.”

Scripture Pictures has a Scripture photo of Psalm 46:1-2. It’s called:

God is Our Refuge!

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear.

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry in Maui, Hawaii at a beach near Hana. The sea cave is assessable only by crawling through a narrow opening in the rocks. Every few seconds, the ocean surf rushes in and floods the tiny cave with water. The sea cave symbolizes that God IS our refuge, no matter the circumstances.

Scriptures-Pictures-2Feeling unworthy of God’s Love?

Take a look at what Sarah Young wrote in her devotional book, Jesus Calling, for December 26th. (She writes “love letters” from Jesus to us).

“When you are disastisfied with your behavior, you tend to feel unworthy of My Love. You may unconsciously punish yourself by withdrawing from Me and attributing the distance between us to My displeasure. Instead of returning to Me and receiving My Love, you attempt to earn My approval by trying harder. All the while I am aching to hold you in My everlasting arms, to enfold you in My Love. When you are feeling unworthy or unloved, come to Me. Then ask for receptivity to My Unfailing Love.”

For more on God’s love for us, please click on the Scripture Pictures photo of 2 Corinthians 4:7-18 called:

Do Not Lose Heart!  

Even when I am…hardpressed, perplexed, persecuted, struck down, I am not destroyed. For I fix my eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. Therefore, I do not lose heart. My spirit is being renewed day by day.”

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry at sunset along the Pacific Ocean near Dana Point, California. Henry says this shot of the lone person standing on the rocks, facing ominous surroundings, is a reminder of the times when we need to wait upon the Lord to reveal His hope – as represented in the light coming through the clouds.
