QUICHE MEFCCNH: Quiche @ Sunday 5:30 PM Service

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.

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Scriptures for an Attitude of Gratitude

Scripture-Pictures-52Scriptures for an Attitude of Gratitude

As Christians, we’re called to be thankful in all situations. Although we may not have power over many of the events that happen in our lives, we still have the choice to respond to situations with a bitter spirit or a grateful heart.

Some Biblical quotes on gratitude include:

Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” 

 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Ways to  increase our personal gratitude:

– Start a daily gratitude journal by listing 3 things you are grateful to have in your life.

– Send a note to your pastors thanking them specifically for how they minister to you.

– Write an e-mail or text to thank  five people who have impacted your life.

– Volunteer in your community and observe how  people are thankful for what little they have.

In His Footsteps,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

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.

Deliverance Scriptures: Scripture Pictures

Scripture-Pictures-27for blogDeliverance Scriptures: Scripture Pictures

Check out this Scripture Pictures photo that describes God’s deliverance, from  Isaiah 40:30-31.

It is called, Soar Like Eagles.

Soar Like Eagles

…those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not be faint.

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry of the island of Bora Bora from a helicopter with both doors removed. The pilot duct-taped Henry and his wife and into the helicopter so they wouldn’t fall out! This shot offers visual affirmation of God’s magnificence and deliverance power.

Click on the Scripture Pictures photo for a larger view.

God gives us deliverance each day. But we can’t get distracted by the past or worry about the future. Stay present and focus on what God can create today. Tomorrow will reveal itself exactly as God has planned – just as yesterday has.

In Christ’s Love,

Henry, Patti and the Scripture Pictures Team

Looking for Restoration Scriptures to restore & renew?

Scripture Pictures has photos with a variety of anointed restoration scriptures to refresh, uplift and renew.

Check out this Restoration quote:

“Our character is often most evident in our highs and lows, Be humble at the mountaintops, be strong in the valleys, and be faithful in between.”

Here’s another Restoration quote:

“On particularly hard days when you feel that you can’t endure, remind yourself that your track record with God for getting through hard days is 100% so far.”

I found these quotations all over the Internet, but am not sure who wrote them. Maybe it was the Holy Spirit!

Here’s a restoration scripture picture from Psalm 60:12:

“With God’s help we will do mighty things….”

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry near the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, Alaska as a small boat of tourists passed by. Henry says this shot reminds him of how small he can feel when life gets rocky. But when we call upon the name of Jesus, we can do mighty things!

Scripture-Pictures-6910 Ways to Love: Scripture Pictures

Struggling in your marriage? Having problems with your kids?

Looking for healing and restoration?

Here are 10 ways to love according to the Scriptures:

10 Ways To Love

1. Listen Without Interrupting.

“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24

2. Speak Without Accusing. 

“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:” James 1:19

3. Give Without Sparing. 

“He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.” Proverbs 21:26

4. Pray Without Ceasing. 

“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;” Colossians 1:9

5. Answer Without Arguing. 

“Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.” Proverbs 17:1

6. Share Without Pretending. 

“But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:” Ephesians 4:15

7. Enjoy Without Complaint. 

“Do all things without murmurings and disputings:” Philippians 2:14

8. Trust Without Wavering. 

“Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.”

9. Forgive Without Punishment. 

“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.” Colossians 3:13

10. Promise Without Forgetting. 

“A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.” Proverbs 13:2

From http://access-jesus.com/ten-ways-to-love-without-conditions.html

We cannot love others on our own. It takes the power and grace of the Lord for us to truly love others. This Scripture Pictures photo reminds us that God will give us the compassion to love no matter the situation. It is from 1 John 4:4:

He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

This Scripture Pictures photo was taken by Henry in Arches National Park in Utah. It is the perfect shot for people who admire the rugged nature that God has created. The opening in the arch reveals a beautiful scene of light and hope in the distance that wait at the end of the darkness.

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

God Bless You,

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.
