What is success? Here is how Sarah Young in her devotional book, Jesus Calling, describes it:

“People usually associate victory with success: not falling or stumbling, not making mistakes. But those who are successful in their own strength tend to go their own way, forgetting about me. It is through problems and failure, weakness and  neediness that you rely upon Me…….This is not a path of continual success but of multiple failures. However, each failure is followed by a growth spurt, nourished by increased reliance on Me.”

(January 5th devotional, Jesus Calling)

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team pray that we all bring our wants, needs and desires to the foot of the cross where all healing and hope are found.

The conference was held at the Opryland Hotel.

About 7,000 people attended the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) “Be Strong” conference.

If you are near the Nashville area, you might want to check out the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC)  conference website and sign-up for some of the amazing workshops for 2017 (the conference is held every two years).

Soooooo many amazing Christian speakers and singers shared at the AACC conference – John Townsend, Jeremy Camp, Joni Eareckson-Tada, John Hagee, John Ortman, Tim Clinton….and so many more.

Patti and John want to thank all of you who prayed for them and their presentation at the AACC conference.

Here is a photo of Patti and John right before they gave their workshop. John’s wife, Dorie, took the photo. Dorrie also speaks with John in various Christian workshops.

Sitting there thinking, “Things should be different right now?”

Take a deep breath. That is not true and you know it.

Because if it were true, things would be different right now.

God’s timing is always perfect. He is right on time.

Check out these scriptures on God’s timing:

But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day! Habakkuk 2:3 TLB 

To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Click on the Scripture Pictures photo of Proverbs 3:6 for a larger view:

In all your ways acknowledge Him, 
And He shall direct your paths.

This Scripture Pictures photo of  Proverbs 3:6 was taken by Henry on a very secluded beach in Maui, Hawaii. The gentle waves on the sand remind Henry and Patti of God’s anointing flowing through us, as God’s heart touches others’ hearts through us, as we reach out in love.

Proverbs 3:6 is another confirmation of God’s timing at work in our lives.

In Christ’s Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Healing Scriptures: Scripture Pictures

Scripture-Pictures-95Healing Scriptures: Scripture Pictures

Scriptures promise that God can heal ANY affliction, illness, addiction, or heartache.

Here are more healing scriptures from Dodie Osteen’s book, Healed of Cancer. She is Joel Osteen’s mother.

Isaiah 53:4-5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Jeremiah 30:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)
For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord, because they have called you an outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no one seeks after and for whom no one cares!

Matthew 21:21 Amplified Bible (AMP)
And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done.

Please send Scripture Pictures your prayer requests for healing.

In Jesus’ Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Mother’s Day Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Patti’s  Mom’s Cross

Hi, this is Patti from Scripture Pictures – Henry’s wife. It’s almost Mother’s Day, so I wanted to share about my mom’s cross and why it’s on our Free Prayer Card.

If one verse from the Word of God described my Mom’s life, it would be Matthew 16:24: “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” 

Mom “took up her cross” by keeping our family together through heart-breaking times. She showed my dad compassion for his lifelong battle with alcoholism and PTSD from World War II. Mom bravely took care of my sister who died at age 21 after suffering a long, painful illness.

Mom took up her cross once again when she had cancer. She was 49. I was just 16. Mom became desperately sick very rapidly. But she had God’s peace that passeth all understand.

Mom took experimental medications – not to help her live longer, because it was too late – but to help other cancer patients in the future. When visitors came, they would cry because Mom looked so sick. But Mom would comfort them and pray for their needs.

Mom’s most prized possession was her gold cross necklace that she wore for many years. Two days before she died, she gave it to me.

When I hold Mom’s cross, I  realize that not even death can separate me from her love.

We, at Scripture Pictures, want to wish you and all the moms a very blessed Mother’s Day!

In His Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Mother’s Day Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Celebrate Mother’s Day with bible verses about mothers that are sure  to uplift and inspire. There are many women in the Bible who are precious examples of a mother’s sacrifice and love.

Proverbs 31: 25-28 (KJV):

Strength and honour [are] her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness.

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband [also], and he praiseth her.

Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team pray that your Mother’s Day is a blessed Sunday, indeed.

In His Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Please click on the Scripture Pictures photo from I Corinthians 13 called:

Love Lasts Forever 

Love is patient and kind. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever.”

This photo was taken in Henry and Patti’s family room for a very special Mother’s Day brunch. Its sophisticated look makes it an artful Mother’s Day gift for your wife, mother, grandmother or sister.

Scripture Pictures for Sale       Mothers Day

It is almost Mother’s Day, so I want to ask you – who’s the strongest Christian woman you  know? For me, that woman was my mom, Elizabeth Swaney.

My mom was a living testimony of God’s anointing during the darkest night of the soul. 

Mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer when she was just 49. I was 16. The doctors said she had less than a year to live. Mom became deathly ill very fast. But Mom’s faith was unstoppable.

Mom took experimental medications – not to help her, because her cancer was too advanced – but with the hope of helping other cancer patients in the future.

People who came to visit Mom would often break down and cry because she was obviously suffering physically. I remember men from the church who visited with Mom – they’d just burst into tears because her body was dying in front of them. But Mom would comfort her visitors, quote scripture, and pray for their needs – yes, she’s pray for her visitors and minister to them.

Mom’s miracle was not about being healed, but how she lived out her faith as she lay dying, awaiting to go home to be with the Lord.

I pray that for this Mother’s Day, you will be able to hug your mom – whether she is still on earth on in Heaven!

In Christ’s Love,

Patti (Henry’s wife) from Scripture Pictures

17 Cats: The Next Generation 

In the beginning, there was the feral Siamese cat, who had a litter of five kitties in our backyard. (For more information, see our Blog, “Guilty! 17 Cats and Counting”.)

This litter of five soon begat another litter of kitties. Hence, we ended up with 17 feral cats! HELP!!!

Cute as these fluffy fur-balls were, we obviously had to intervene.

We contacted a cat rescue facility who sent a volunteer who was trained to capture the cats in a humane and safe way so that they could be neutered and spayed. After our cat cuties were fixed, they were returned home to us, safe and sound.

Now began the job of feeding 17 hungry feral cats!

Over time, some of the cats migrated to live with other neighboring families. But a core group of six remains with us until this day.

We have learned a lot about the plight of feral cats and are now actively supporting cat rescues in our area.

God gives us surprising ministries!

In His Love at Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry & the Scripture Pictures Team

The team at Scripture Pictures invites you to send us your cat stories.
