Verses that keep you going

I will never leave you nor forsake you
Hebrews 13:5

Peace I leave with you,
 My peace I give to you; 
not as the world gives do I give to you. 
Let not your heart be troubled, 
neither let it be afraid. 
John 14:27

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above
James 1:17

May you take these verses with you this week and know that God is with you. For those unwell or struggling, tired or weary or your brain is feeling all foggy, you are in my prayers.  For those of you who are doing something new and you are feeling nervous, God is with you.  For those who feel they are all in a muddle . . . don't panic, the LORD is your strength. Likewise those with sick children or grandchildren, the LORD is your rock.

Don't give up . . . just LOOK UP



Autumn has arrived in my garden and the Maple Tree is changing into these most beautiful golden colours. Hope you enjoyed this burst of orange, red and yellow - I took these photos especially for you. I don't know about you, but these colours make me joyful and happy just looking at them.

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Psalm 18 1-2


  1. Those autumn leaves are gorgeous! We don't get enough cold for that sort of change but I love the colours.
    One of the things I missed out on, being converted to Christianity as an adult, was learning the scriptures from a young age. I have tried to remedy that learning along with my children. The verses of scripture stored in our heart and mind give such comfort and strength through every need. Thanks for posting these.

    1. That was the one thing I missed living in Darwin - no Autumn leaves.

      I have a little book that I write my very favourite verses - it fits into my handbag so i can take it with me and it is pretty and inviting to read.

  2. Beautiful verses... Those verses are such a comfort and strength when things are not going the way we dreamed or imagined they would... They are some of my favourites.

    Beautiful photos... This is one of my favourite times of year - and your photos are gorgeous! Our trees haven't really turned beautiful colours this year (at least not yet), although some have gone ugly colours and dropped off anyway. I wonder if the weather trends have anything to do with the colours they turn in the autumn?

    1. Our trees have really turned in the last week or so - the Maple only changed in the last couple of days. We are having cold weather at the moment and that helps with the change in colour - less sunlight, which is why the leaves loose the green.

  3. Hi Loluise,
    Autumn is my favourite time of year too.
    Your maple leaf photos are beautiful...goegeous colours.
    The bible verses are some of my favorites and I especially like 'don't give up...look up'...thank you for that.
    God Bless

  4. Thanks Barb, glad you enjoyed the photos - don't they just make you feel happy with those gorgeous colours:)

    We must all look up and not at our feet.

    Have a wonderful blessed week :)

  5. Your autumn photos were simply gorgeous, and I enjoyed reading the scriptures you chose as well. The encouragement is always needed.
