Words on Her Door

Words of comfort
of hope, of truth
the promises of God
written in meter and verse

God telling us something
in each of the scriptures
something to hold onto
to change our very lives

Words on her door
the canon of the bible
offered daily
to remind of us You

Holy scripture
down through the ages
speaking then as now
if we listen to the word of God

Isaiah 26:4 (Amplified Bible) (posted on Ruth’s office door)
“So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him,
hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is
an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].”

Ephesians 5:1 (posted on Ruth’s office door)
and various translations of Ephesians 5:1-2
“Be imitators of God, therefore,
as dearly loved children and
live a life of love, just as Christ loved us
and gave himself up for us as a
fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (NIV)

Romans 5:3-4 (Common English Bible)
posted to Ruth’s office door
(and not like Martin Luther’s 95 Theses
nailed to the Wittenburg church door- smile)
“But not only that! We even take pride in our problems,
because we know that trouble produces endurance,
endurance produces character, and character produces hope.”
