Birthday Verses

A friend of mine (thanks Tanni) turned me onto this and think it is absolutely fantastic. The theory is that there is a specific verse in the Bible which correlates to your birthday. Here's ours...

Greg- March 2
1 John 3:2 NIV
Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

Amanda- August 19
Romans 8:19 NIV
The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.

Stacy- May 14
1 John 5:14 NIV
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Siarah- July 17
1 Corinthians 7:17 NIV
Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life that the Lord assigned to him and to which God has called him . . .

TJ and Melanie- June 15 (Yes, they share a birthday)
Ephesians 6:15 NIV
...with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

Kamryn- July 21
Matthew 7:21 NIV
“Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

Tony- April 9
1 John 4:9 NIV
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

It amazes me how inspirational the verses are, especially to each individual child. Each one seems almost handpicked for my kiddos. God is great!
