    Help I need help! Biblical Scriptures or passages, please!

    Advertisements
    So - I need some passages from the Bible or religious phrase/saying that would be inspiring and meaningful to use in some Cristmas gifts I'm making.
    Yet nothing comes to mind! I've written out several passages that I know - but none seem "right" - I need something uplifting, hopeful, promising, possitive but not overused.

    What I'm doing (two seperate projects)
    One project is a gift for my Dad for Christmas - a chainmaille cross bolted to a slab of flagstone to hang in his office (he's a minister in the Methodist Church). He's a motorcycle junkie - so this gift will fit in quite nicely with his office decor.
    So the cross is very basic - size is about 5 x 7 ... This will be on the left side of the stone and I want to make a metal-plaque to go on the right side, about the same size.
    My idea is to use my craft letter/number tap-set and hammer the words into a sheet of steel and then bolt it down...

    The other project is along the same idea - only without the stone/cross and the scripture will be set into a frame with glass.

    (As many as you can think of! I have a Bible, believe it or not, so if you only know a chapter/book - or partially know of a passage that's sort of in your head but you can't put your finger on it - that'll work, too If these two I do turn out nicely then I might make quite a few more!)

    From Deuteronomy 2:7
    "He has watched over your journey through this vast desert."

    Isaiah 35:8
    "And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it; it will be for those who walk in that Way; wicked fools will not go about on it."

    I Corinthians 16:6
    "Perhaps I will stay with you awhile, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go."

    2 Kings 6:19
    "Elisha told them, "This is not the road and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for." And he led them to Samaria."

    Isaiah 49:11
    "I will turn all my mountains into roads, and my highways will be raised up."


    I like that last one best! I stopped looking after I found that one



    This one is not serious but I giggled at it, from Micah 6:5 : My people, remember what Balak king of Moab counseled and what Balaam son of Beor answered. Remember your journey from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the righteous acts of the LORD."

    Shittim? Really?? ROFLMAO!! I never read that before!!

    All of those are very good - I really like Isaih 49:11, though, that's very suiting!!

    Any others? Keep 'em coming!

    I think I'll use Isaiah 49:11 for my Dad, though - that's really good. I read the chapter that comes from and it's very suitable to some issues he's had in his life - a follower of God questioning his worth and meaning and that's part of God's answer to him. My Dad would appreciate it.

    I found this, too, in efforts to find something for my other sister who's not religious.

    A lot of really good stuff, there, I can't narrow it down

    I'll have to think back to things she's written and said to me and come up with something that's sort of related.

    *edit* This one is really good for her!
