Gratitude A to Z

I am so grateful for God’s Word.  I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite scriptures through the alphabet.  I am going to use the first scripture that pops into my head for each letter.  I am sure I will have to dig for a few of them.

    I love your list of Scripture verses. I guess for my favourite verse to add to this list of yours would be John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    This is a great list! Thank you so much for sharing it. I think it would be a great place to start memorizing scripture. Today I am so thankful for Isaiah 43:1-7, but I will share Isaiah 43:5a “Do not be afraid for I am with you.” Happy Thanksgiving!

      I love all of the verses that tell us not to fear. What do we have to fear, when God is with us?

    What a wonderful reminder Barbie and what a precious sister you are to the body of Christ! This time of year one of my favorite scriptures is Mary’s amazing response to the angel Gabriel: “Be it unto me according to your word.” May we all be as open and willing as Mary was! Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Barbie says:

      Oh yes, to be like Mary, sort of like, “whatever you want God, I’m in”! That’s my interpretation of it anyways! Happy Thanksgiving!
