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.

For more information, visit https://www.operationgratitude.com/

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,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Scripture.Pictures wants to pay tribute to the Wounded Warrior Project that has helped thousands of service members – and their families – as they return home from the battlefield by:

  • Raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
  • Helping injured service members aid and assist each other.
  • Providing unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

The Wounded Warrior Project has a variety of programs to support the service members’  “Mind, Body, Economic and Engagement” needs.

Please take a few moments over this Memorial Day weekend to find out more information about the Wounded Warrior Project at www.woundedwarriorproject.org.

And please consider making a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project to help the men and women who served our country who are now in need of our support and love.

When you go to church this weekend, remember to thank our military who fought to preserve our freedom to worship the Lord openly and freely.

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Please click on the Scripture Pictures photo for a larger view of 2 Corinthians 4: 7-18:

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.

You Overcame: Scripture Pictures

Locked in a spiritual battle?

Looking for signs of hope from God?

The good news is the battle has already been won at Calvary.

All our spiritual battles lay defeated at the foot of the cross.

Here are some Scripture verses about being an overcomer in Christ Jesus:

 1 John 4:4 reminds us that we are an overcomer: You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than He who is in the world.”

 1 John 5:4-5: For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

 Romans 8:37 confirms we are overcomers and more than conquerors. See the Scripture Pictures photo called:

More Than Conquerors!                                                                                    

 “…we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry at sunset in Palau, Micronesia. The image is an excellent witness to the splendor of God’s power to transform us and make us overcomers.

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

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

For a larger view, please click on the Scripture Pictures photo of Psalm 147:3: “God Heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

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.”

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
