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.

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team invite you to attend the Sunday 5:30 PM service at their church – the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH).

They are on the Hospitality Committee and serve food every Sunday at the 5:30 PM service.

This Sunday, December 13, 2015, is very special because the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) will be saying good-bye to their beloved Youth Pastor, Justin Floyd.

Pastor Justin is involved in almost every aspect of the church. He is loved by everyone! He has a special calling for our youth.

He will preach the sermon this Sunday, December 13, 2015, at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH). His sermons are always memorable, as he mixes humor, sports stories and God’s love all together into something wonderful.

Please join us all in saying good-bye to him this Sunday.

And here’s a photo of the type of the cheese quiche that Henry and Patti will be serving. It has bacon, mushroom, and various peppers. And there will be a lovely table of food for the 5:30 PM Sunday service – just look to your left as you enter the Social Hall.

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.

Tiger for fathers dayChristian Gifts: Inspirational & Unique

Is your dad your hero? Here’s a Father’s Day poem that will bless your dad.

My Hero

My hero is the quiet type,
No marching bands, no media hype,
But through my eyes it’s plain to see,
A hero, God has sent to me.

With gentle strength and quiet pride,
All self-concern is set aside,
To reach out to his fellow man,
And be there with a helping hand.

Heroes are a rarity,
A blessing to humanity.
With all they give and all they do,
I’ll bet the thing you never knew,
My hero has always been you.

–Anonymous

Memorial Day Gifts: Scripture Pictures

cross card final crop flatMemorial Day Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Here is a Memorial Day poem to encourage and inspire.

Remember that Armed Forces Day is today, SaturdayMay 16, 2015.

 

Honor Our Military

Let’s honor our military,
The men and women who serve,
Whose dedication to our country
Does not falter, halt or swerve.

Let’s respect them for their courage;
They’re ready to do what’s right
To keep America safe,
So we can sleep better at night.

Let’s support and defend our soldiers,
Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,
Whose discipline we can’t imagine,
Who follow each order and rule.

Here’s to those who choose to be warriors
And their helpers good and true;
They’re fighting for American values;
They’re fighting for me and you.

By Joanna Fuchs

Scripture-Pictures-92bMemorial Day Gifts: Scripture Pictures

In honor of our veterans, Scripture Pictures wants to offer personalized photos for your loved ones.

Here is a sample of our Scripture Pictures military photo that we dedicated “In Memory of Jake Hoffman” – that was Patti’s grandfather who was a World War I veteran (for more information on him, see below).

You can request either “In Honor of” your loved one or “In Memory of” him or her. Scripture Pictures will add the name of the person you want to pay tribute to at no additional charge. You simply pay for the photo and let us know the name you want.

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

(Please click on the Scripture Pictures photo for a larger view.)

You will also get a free Scripture Pictures Prayer Card with every order. If you’d like a few extra Scripture Pictures Prayer Cards, just let us know.

Here’s more about Patti’s grandfather, Jake Hoffman: Grandpa Jake was a cook in Word War I. He volunteered to serve food on the front lines to his fellow soldiers in the Army, which was a dangerous mission. Grandpa Jake received medals for his bravery in the War. Sadly, he was exposed to many chemicals during the War and later died when Patti’s mom was just 12 years old.

Please send us your prayer requests for any of your loved ones who are currently in the military, or who have returned home but are still dealing with the aftermath of their service to our country.

In His Love,

Henry. Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

You can order your photos from our In Service section under the Military category.
