My Favorite Bible Verse


I attended Catholic School from elementary to college. I even stayed at the school’s dormitory half of my elementary years to high school. I cannot forget the everyday masses, bible studies and retreats that we had. I remember our homework in Religion where every meeting we have to have our own favorite verse and you are asked to tell your thoughts or Find out more about your life that you can relate to your favorite bible verse. I have a lot of favorite verses but what really strike me most of the time is the one from Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

As you mature and go through life, problems come along the way. You experience the ups and downs of life that sometimes when you are so down with so much trials to face you just want to give up. You probably think that somebody up there has left or abandoned you. During this crisis in life, I always turn to my bible, read and reflect my favorite verse. It has been so effective to me. I know that HE will not give me anything that I cannot handle as long as I put my total trust in HIM.

Lately, I have been trying to Find out more about local retreats where I can join. I have read about the forthcoming first ever Theater Church Conference in Silver Spring, MD to be hosted by CineMeetings & Events on October 22-23. I need to Find out moreabout this interesting event and check my schedule. Hope we will see each other there.

that's a good scripture. mine is romans 7:15-20

For what I am working out I do not know. For what I wish, this I do not practice; but what I hate is what I do. 16 However, if what I do not wish is what I do, I agree that the Law is fine. 17 But now the one working it out is no longer I, but sin that resides in me. 18 For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, there dwells nothing good; for ability to wish is present with me, but ability to work out what is fine is not [present]. 19 For the good that I wish I do not do, but the bad that I do not wish is what I practice. 20 If, now, what I do not wish is what I do, the one working it out is no longer I, but the sin dwelling in me.
