Verse A Day October Challenge | Days 21-29

Wow I got 8 days behind...not one bit good. Well, I have tried to keep up. I will admit I haven't done my best with this challenge...

Day 21: Calm
I like the story of when Jesus and the disciples were out on the water and Jesus fell asleep and a storm came. The disciples were terrified and woke Jesus to rescue them. Read what he said:

Mark 4:39 KJV: "And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."

Day 22: In Your Town
I wasn't quite sure what to do with this so I just Googled the words "town kjv" and several verses came up. One really jumped out at me more than the others though because it had such a strong message and I felt I should pass it along with you:

Habakkuk 2:12-14 KJV: "12-Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stabisheth a city by iniquity! 13-Behold, is it not of the Lord of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity? 14-For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."

Day 23: The View From Here
The very first thing that popped to mind was when God told Abraham (Abram at the time) what land would be given to his children and the generations following after him.

Genesis 13:14-15 KJV: "14-And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lord was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15-For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever."

Day 24: Weather
I do believe that in Job, in first chapter, when his children are killed in the oldest brother's house by the 'great wind' that it is actually talking about a tornado...I think I remember hearing that from a Bible study, or something like that a few years ago. Anyway, it was weather related kind of and was the first thing I thought of on this topic. It's really a sad point to throw in with this collection of verse, but I can't really think of any other weather related verses at the moment.

Job 1:18-19 KJV: "18-While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: 19-And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee."

Day 25: People
I find this verse fitting since we have the vote for the President and many other leaders of our country coming up! Do you plan to vote?

Proverbs 29:2 KJV: "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn."

Day 26: Listening To
Listening to the words of Jesus...

Luke 12:15 KJV: "And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth."

Day 27: Morning
One book of the Bible I've read a lot of through the years is Proverbs which is why I tend to lean toward pulling verses from those chapters as I am going to do right now. I always thought this was an interesting verse. I know that when my sisters were younger (and more sarcastic) conversations about this verse got quite interesting!

Proverbs 27:14 KJV: He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him."

Day 28: Looking Back
Although I'm sure this probably is meaning more looking back on time, the story that comes to mind is when Lot's wife looks back at the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah and is turned into a pillar of salt as the angels had warned would happen to anyone who looked back.

Genesis 19:26 KJV: "But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt."

Day 29: Moon
I think my favorite book of the Bible is Acts. I read it a lot... One verse I've seen several times talks about the sun and the moon just before the return of Jesus:

Acts 2:20-21 KJV: "20-The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: 21-And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

In Closing For Today
I know I've done a really awful job on this challenge this month, I'm hoping to do something similar next month so that I can get into the habit so it won't be so hard for me. I really do like finding verses this way! Plus there are so many different photo challenges and other challenges I could use! :) Until the next post...

  1. I just posted 6 days worth of verses as well. We actually used a lot of the same ones again. :) Oh, and I thought it was funny that you posted the verse about blessing your neighbor loudly in the morning. I really like that verse, because I think it's funny. :)


    1. Lol really? I'm gonna come see yours! I've literally got 600+ pics in my BEB photo to edit for posts...I've just not had time. I'm REALLY behind...

      Yeah that is a funny verse.
