Happy Memorial Day: Scripture Pictures

Here are 5 reasons to thank a military service member – either a veteran or a soldier in active service – on this Memorial Day:

1. Freedom to worship God openly in America.

2. Freedom of speech.

3. Protection of the rights of women to get an education.

4. Protection for children from brutal child labor and sex trafficking.

5.  The right to vote.

Millions of people from all over the world do not experience any of these freedoms.

On this Memorial Day, may we all get on our knees and thank God for the blessings that have been bestowed upon our country.

And may we remain vigilant, as Satan engages in spiritual warfare to try to take away these freedoms that our military service men and women have fought so very hard to obtain and sustain.

In Christ’s Love,

Patti, Henry and the Scripture Pictures Team

This Memorial Day weekend, Scripture.Pictures wants to honor Operation Gratitude – an organization that: 

“annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of our Military.” 

Patti of the Scripture Pictures Team has been a “letter writer” for Operation Gratitude, that is, she has written letters of appreciation and support to service members that were included in the Operation Gratitude care packages that are sent overseas.

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team ask you to pray about supporting Operation Gratitude through financial support and volunteering your time.

In Christ’s Love,

Mandisa’s Overcomer: Scripture Pictures

Are you struggling to be an overcomer in a difficult situation?

Need some inspiring, Bible-based encouragement?

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team want to share with you Mandisa’s song called, Overcomer. Her music video is sure to uplift your spirit.

Here are some excerpts of the lyrics to Overcomer:

“You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when He reminds You
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

Everybody’s been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Ooh, you’re not alone
Just take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants You to know

The same Man, the Great I am
The one who overcame death
He’s living inside of You
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There’s nothing He can’t do
He’s telling you
So don’t quit, don’t give in, you’re an overcomer
Don’t quit, don’t give in, you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

Christian Quotes: Scripture Pictures

Why worship when you can worry?

One of the morning routines for the Scripture Pictures Team is to start every day by reading the daily e-mail devotional from Joel Osteen.

This week, Joel Osteen had a great devotional called: WORRY OR WORSHIP? Here is an excerpt below:

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

The enemy would love to get you worrying instead of worshiping God. When the devil brings you thoughts of worry, anxiety and fear, let them be a reminder to thank God that His answer is on the way. Say, “Devil, thank you for reminding me,” and then say, “Father, I thank You that You are at work on my behalf.” Do you need a victory in your life? Then learn to worship instead of worry!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
God, You are truly the great God who is the Provider of everything we need and much more. I want to be a worshiper instead of a worrier. So today I claim Your promise of deliverance from thoughts of fear or anxiety. Thank You for giving me the victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Joel & Victoria Osteen

In His Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

You can find this photo on the Shop Page in the Hope and Inspiration section under Healing.

This photo was taken off the Big Island of Hawaii at sunset. Behind the dark clouds are streaks of sunlight that symbolize there is always hope in the Lord, no matter how dire the situation may appear. 

God bless Joel Osteen!

Christian Sex Addiction ScripturePictures

How can you tell if you –  or a loved one – is becoming addicted to sex or pornography?

Dr. Patrick Carnes, an expert in love and sex addiction, has identified  four key questions to help people discover if they have a sexual addiction:

1. Is Your Behavior a Secret?

Are you doing behaviors that you hide from others? Do you fear that if your family and friends knew what you were doing, they would reject you? Are you lying to cover up your actions? If so, you are isolating yourself from family and friends and forming a potentially addictive relationship.

2. Is Your Behavior Abusive?

Is your sexual behavior degrading or exploitative of others? Do you find yourself performing increasingly abusive acts? Do you get pleasure from watching others being abused?

3. Is Your Behavior Used to Self-medicate Painful Feelings?

Do you use sex to change your mood? Do you act out sexually when you’re depressed, bored, or angry? 

4. Is Your Behavior Empty of Genuine Commitment and Caring?

Are you substituting the illusion of intimacy for the genuine intimacy found in a healthy relationship?

The Scripture Pictures Team has felt a special anointing to reach out to people struggling with sex addiction. Please don’t suffer in silence. Reach out for help today from your pastors and Christian friends.

In Christ’s Love,

Patti, Henry, and the Scripture Pictures Team

Here is a Scripture Pictures photo called “You Were Bought at a Price” from our Sexual Integrity section. The scripture is from 1 Corinthians 6:19-20: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. You were bought at a high price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.”

Christmas Eve: Scripture Pictures

DSC_1436 Christmas EveChristmas Eve: Scripture Pictures

Henry and I have a family tradition of attending the 11 PM candlelight service on Christmas Eve.

We love to welcome the first light of Christmas morning by being at church on Christmas Eve.

 

What do I like most about the Christmas Eve candlelight service? I love the…

  • warm, cozy glow of the candles
  • rows of bright red poinsettias
  • decorated wreaths made from pine
  • receiving communion from the pastors
  • hearing the choir sing Christmas carols
  • listening to the pastor’s wisdom
  • hugging everybody in church

But most of all, Henry and I love celebrating the birthday of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

“Behold, the virgin shall become pregnant and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel – which, when translated, means, God with us.” (Matthew 1:23, AMP)

This verse reminds me that God is always with us – even when we feel far from Him.

In Christ’s Love from Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry & the Scripture Pictures Team

P.S. Here is a photo of the ending of our Christmas Eve service, just a few minutes into Christmas morning. If you look carefully, you can see people carrying their candles as they leave the church. (Please click on image for larger view.)

Merry Christmas from the Scripture Pictures Team.

buffysits on santaChristian Gifts: Scripture Pictures

Ever shown up at the right place but at the wrong time?

Patti did when she took our Pomeranian, Buffy, to have her photo taken with Santa at the local mall on the wrong weekend!

(For more on Buffy, see our blog, “The Dog Who Captured Your Heart: Scripture.Pictures”).

But Patti was determined to get a photo, as Buffy was very old and sick.

So, Patti and Buffy sheepishly stood in a long line with a mass of children and their parents to see Santa. People stared as if to say, “Did you forget your child???”

Although Santa was not supposed to allow photos with pets that day, he graciously made an exception for Buffy. As you can tell in the photo, they instantly bonded.

Sadly, this was Buffy’s last Christmas with us. Our fluffy bundle of joy peacefully passed away shortly after Christmas.

The Team at Scripture Pictures invites you to send us your pet stories.

In Christ’s Love at Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry

Ever had a dog who won your heart in a few seconds?

For Henry and I, that was our Pomeranian, Buffy.

She was six pounds of massively fluffy, buff-colored fur. Buffy’s dark eyes always sparkled.

She had a friendly rosebud mouth that seemed to be perpetually smiling.

Buffy didn’t just walk – she pranced. Her feathery tail would jiggle, as if marching to an unheard drum cadence!

Total strangers on the street would stop and pay homage to Buffy, as if she were an important dignitary.

Indeed, Buffy was a canine ambassador of unconditional love for everyone she met.

Buffy went everywhere with us. She loved to be carried under Henry’s arm.

She was even part of our wedding party!

In His Love at Scripture Pictures,

Patti and Henry

The Scriptures Pictures Team would like to share Christian anger management tips. Consider these questions and Biblical quotes:

1. When you feel angry, imagine a “stop sign”, take some deep breaths, and wait to sense God’s presence. Psalm 46:10“Be still and know that I am God.”

2. Ask yourself, what are my choices in this situation? What are the consequences of these choices? Joshua 24:15: “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve….”

3. Will I choose to be a peacemaker? A troublemaker? Matthew 5:9: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

4. Will I choose to be of service to God  or will I be self-serving? Matthew 6:24: “No one can serve two masters….”

5. Will I trust God in this situation instead of my feelings?  2 Corinthians 5:7: “For we walk by faith not by sight”.

In Christ’s Love From Scripture Pictures,

Patti, Henry & the Scripture Pictures Team
