July Inspiration

I thought I’d share some scriptures that have spoken to me in the last week or so. Maybe they’ll bless someone else, too!

A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death — they are like the new grass of the morning: In the morning it springs up new, but by evening, it is dry and withered.  ~Psalm 90:4-6

Take notice, you senseless ones among the people; you fools, when will you become wise?  ~Psalm 94:8

Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.  ~Psalm 115:1

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.  ~Galatians 1:10

The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold.  ~Psalm 119:72

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.  ~Psalm 127:1

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.  ~Psalm 127:3-5

Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.  ~Philippians 1:12-13
