Bible Nomination Challenge

My friend Ailene tweeted some time ago that all these challenges and lists coming out on FB just shows that Friendster never really died.

Or something to that effect.

At the end of my cycle of the Gratitude Chain, another friend tagged me for the Bible Nomination Challenge. But before I could post my favorite verse, another friend tagged me as well.

And what I noticed was, the verses they posted when they tagged me were perfect for me at that moment. So I decided to take up the challenge, and tagged some friends (which I don’t usually like to do), just to see if there was more “word for me” coming.

I wasn’t disappointed. 🙂

I decided it would make a great blog series again, but it was only today that I figured out how to go about it. I’m not quite ready to write about why these verses were perfect for me at that point in my life, but I still wanted to share them. The idea that came to me — or should I say, I am being lead to try — was to post as many English versions of these verses that I could find.

I’m in a bit of a rush this morning, so I’ll just post the references for the verses that came out. Feel free to look them up yourself. In the next few days, I’ll simply be posting the actual verses, but featuring one English translation each day.

My unofficial partners for this will be my two favorite sites for bible cross-references (comparing different bible versions): and (home of the youversion app).

Here are the verses (and the friends who posted them) in order of appearance on my wall:

Romans 8:39 (from Aia)

John 10:10 (from Leo)

Isaiah 41:9 (mine)

Proverbs 10:22 (from Susan)

Isaiah 30:21 (from Donna)

John 10:2 (John said this is from his wife)

John 3:16 (from Sherry)

John 1:17 (from John)

Three of us specified the versions we preferred (Leo, Susan, and me). I’m looking forward to seeing how the different English translations rendered them.

Until the next blog!
