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.

FCCNH: Good-bye to Pastor Justin

bannerFCCNH: Good-bye to Pastor Justin 

God has called our church’s youth pastor, Justin Floyd, to a new position at a different church. He has served as a youth pastor at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) for several years.

Pastor Justin will be giving his last sermon at the First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) this Sunday, December 13, 2015, at the 5:30 PM service in the social hall (see the attached photo).

Scripture Pictures invites everyone to hear his sermon this Sunday! Pastor Justin is known for his sense of humor, love of sports, but most of all – his love for God and our youth.

The First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) is located at 4390 Colfax Ave., Studio City, CA 91604. The church’s website is www.fccnh.org.

Patti and Henry of the Scripture Pictures Team will be serving food at the 5:30 PM service on Sunday (like they always do every week). Patti will be baking her “famous” bacon and mushroom quiches! There will be plenty of good food to celebrate Pastor Justin’s ministry on Sunday. 

The First Christian Church of North Hollywood (FCCNH) will so miss him!!!!

In God’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

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.

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.

PRAYER REQUEST FROM SCRIPTURE PICTURES!

Hi, this is Patti, the wife of Henry Lehn, from the Scripture Pictures Team.

I have a prayer request in behalf of my husband.

Since we have started the Scripture Pictures photo ministry, Satan has been attacking both of us relentlessly.

But Satan has been particularly attacking Henry’s health.

May I ask all of you who are reading this blog to pray that Henry’s recently diagnosed brain tumor will not grow in size and will not cause any symptoms where he will need brain surgery? The tumor is large & in an area that could cause a lot of damage.

Henry was also recently diagnosed with diabetes and is struggling with a lot of changes in his life because of it.

He also has a nodule on his thyroid. The doctor will biopsy it once his diabetes is under better control. Henry’s mom had thyroid cancer, so the doctor is even more concerned.

Henry is still able to do his photography and will be posting some new Hawaii Scripture Pictures photos on this site.

Thank you for your patience with the Scripture Pictures team, as we have not posted a new blog or new photos in about a month. Please visit Scripture Pictures on Facebook, as Henry is adding some new photos from our trip to the Big Island of Hawaii.

Please feel free to send us an email letting us know you are praying for Henry. Henry would so like to know that you are standing with him in prayer.

And as always, Henry and I, as well as the Scripture Pictures Team, consider it an honor to pray for you! Email us your prayer requests!

In His Footsteps,

Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Scripture Pictures Back From Hawaii!

Aloha!  Henry and Patti of  Scripture Pictures just got back from the Big Island of Hawaii!

God’s sacred beauty is evident all over the Big Island.

Henry and Patti are so thankful that the Lord has given them this glorious opportunity to meet so many wonderful people from the Big Island area.

Henry took some great shots. The Scripture Pictures Team cannot wait to share Henry’s newest photos from Hawaii.

Check out our Blogs and our Facebook page in the next week for new photos and scriptures. We will also give you behind-the-scenes stories of Henry and Patti’s Hawaiian adventures.

In the mean time, please enjoy this Scripture Pictures photo from a past trip to Maui, Hawaii.

Click on the photo for a larger view of the Scripture Pictures photo from Philippians 4:13 called:

Hold Out for Victory!

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry at a remote beach in Wailea, Maui at sunset. The shot offers a fascinating contrast between the rugged rocks and the gentle surf. It is a visual testimony of both the strength of the Lord and His gentleness.

You can find this photo on the Shop Page in the New Testament section under Philippians.
