One of my friends sent me an awesome gift a couple of years ago.
What I received was a stack of 3″ x 5″ index cards with a Bible verse written on each card. They each have a hole punched through the top left corner. A key ring type carabiner holds them all together neatly, making it easy to leaf through them and read.
The verses my friend wrote were filled with God’s promises. In my “day of trouble” at the time, my friend knew just what I needed to hear – and read.
Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. (Psalm 50:15)
As I read over the cards each day, the Lord strengthens me. What a gift!
Over time, I added to the collection of verses, even using different colored cards sometimes. It would be nice to assign a different color to each type of verse, but I’m way not organized enough for that! But, maybe you are. 😉
Some cards have two verses because the second verse was necessary for getting the full impact of what God is saying.
Surely you can see that the cards are helpful for praying scripture and scripture memorization, too.
I share this with you today because it’s a tool and an encouragement. You could make one for yourself and, while you’re at it, write more than one card for each verse. You’d have extra copies to make duplicate verse “leaflets” for your friends.
It would be neat to give your friends a card stack with these 16 verses about friendship…and then they can add to the verses from there. Or, you could do like my friend, and write verses that offer promises, give strength, things that build her faith.
So, what do you think? Is this something you’d like to have – or to give?
P.S. If my faith is something you don’t understand, this will help clear things up for you.
