THE BIBLE

What book is that whose page divine

Bears God's impress on every line,

And in man's soul makes light to shine?

The Bible

When sin and sorrow, want and woe,

Assail poor mortals here below,

What book can then true comfort show?

The Bible

What paints the beautiful and true,

And mirrors at a single view

The paths which here we should pursue?

The Bible

What is the brightest gift the Lord

In his great mercy did award

To man, to be his shield and guard?

The Bible

What teaches love and truth and peace,

And bids good will 'mong men increase?

And bids strife, war and murder cease?

The Bible

Oh! What can make this world of woe

With peace and truth and virtue glow,

Till men no sin nor sorrow know?

The Bible

When error fled before its foes,

And Luther, like the morning, rose,

With what did he Rome's crimes expose?

The Bible

What is it now that baffles Rome,

Where error long has found a home,

In many a pagan pile and dome?

The Bible

What gives to man the power and will,

God's high behest to do fulfill

And points the way to Zion's hill?

The Bible

When death comes knocking at the door,

And man's short life on earth is o'er,

What tells of bliss for ever more?

The Bible

8 Principles for Overcoming Loneliness

It is possible to be around people and still feel lonely. Loneliness is a desolate emotion often accompanied by emotional pain, but God can fill any void that is left from feeling deserted.

  1. "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9).
  2. "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me" (Psalm 23:4).
  3. "Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me" (Psalm 27:10).
  4. "He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways" (Psalm 91:11).
  5. "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand" (Isaiah 41:10).
  6. "This is what the LORD says -- he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: 'Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you'" (Isaiah 43:1-2).
  7. "Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:20).
  8. "God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.' So we say with confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?'" (Hebrews 13:5-6).

5 Healthy Self-Image Passages

Many people struggle with their self-image. They haven't made peace with themselves and accepted who they are. But God wants us to trust him and become who he has made us to be. Here are some passages to consider:

  1. "The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7).
  2. "You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" (Psalm 139:13-16).
  3. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will -- to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves" (Ephesians 1:3-6).
  4. "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 1:6).
  5. "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 2:3-5).
