LOVE LETTER FROM SCRIPTURE

submitted by: Jim Thibodeaux

Why not write a love letter from poetic or favorite scriptures? Select words from certain favorite, romantic, or poetic verses and put them together to form a sentence or short message expressing a sentiment.
Here’s an example:

1) Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) 1:4; 31st word.
2) Psalms 42:7; 1st word.
3) Proverbs 31:10; 10th word.
4) Psalms 38:10; 1st word.
5) 1 Corinthians 13:13; Last word.
6) 1 John 4:7; 8th word.
7) Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; v. 9, 6th word, 5th letter of the word
8) “!”

Translation: “How deep is my love for you!”

This is not very romantic at first glance. However, if you read the passages the whole message deepens in meaning. (I won’t take the time to write out all the passages, but here are a few.)

Psalms 42:7 –
Deep* calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.

Psalms 38:10 –
My* heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes.

1 Corinthians 13:13 –
And now these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love*.

* — Word chosen from passage to create hidden message.

That’s all there is to it. A little time is all it takes. If you are a guy, I suggest sending this to her by mail, especially if you live close or even in the same house. Oh! If you don’t have a lot of familiarity with the Bible, don’t worry. I chose the above passages out of books of the Bible or sections from those books that I thought would be helpful! Trust me! It’s not that hard!
