Announcing ODBD's Customer Contest for Second Scripture Series Favorites Set

Thank you for all your submissions.  The contest is now closed. We will notify the winners soon.

Announcing ODBD's
Customer Contest for the
Second Scripture Series Customer Favorites Set!

As part of our anniversary celebration, we are running a Contest for our "Second Scripture Series Customer Favorites Set"! (You can see the first Customer Favorites set HERE.)

We'd love to have your submissions for this contest! The contest will run from now until Mar. 31, 2011, 11:59pm est. If your verse is chosen to be in the Scripture Series Two Customer Favorites Set, you will receive the set free, your name on the package as the submitter of the verse (see Series 1 as example) plus you will be invited to serve as a guest designer for the release of your stamp on the ODBD Blog when it is released!

Here are the RULES.... PLEASE READ:
1. ONE verse per person! Multiple submissions will be disqualified.
2. Make sure your verse is one you would want to send someone on a card, not just a favorite verse.
3. If more than one person submits the same verse and it is chosen, the first person to submit the verse will be the winner.
4. Enter your submissions in the comment section below.
5. Be sure you leave a way for us to reach you with your submission!
6. PLEASE try to choose short verses. If they are too long Kelley reserves the right to shorten them to fit and to use a different bible version than you submitted.

Please understand that it will take some time for us to decide on the winners, so we can't promise an exact announcement date yet, but that is why we ask you to leave in your comment a way we can reach you. If you miss the post when the winners are announced you will be contacted via whatever method you give us. If you do not leave a way for us to reach you, you will need to see the post!

Below is a list of Scriptures already in use in ODBD Sets. Please be aware there are also some verses that will be in upcoming sets that we cannot share yet, but if per chance you should see a verse you submitted that was not selected but is in an upcoming set, it is because several sets have already been planned out and are in production.

We strongly suggest you check your verse with this list to be sure it isn't already in use.

John 4:4
"greater is he that is in you than he which is in the world."

I have always been drawn to this because if it is God will it is his way! But we will always have a greater power in our side than the evil which runs amuck among us.

This is a verse that always brings me such comfort. I don't see anything from Deuteronomy in your list.

"Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."

Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV

I love this verse because it fits so many different situations. Congratulations, glad all is well, glad you're my friend, etc.

Tami said...

"The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands." Psalm 138:8 (ESV)

or the NIV says: "The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands."

I can see this being used for a graduation card, a congrats card, a thinking of you card or even home decor of some kind in a child's room. LOVE this verse!

1 Peter 5:7
"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

This is a verse I use almost daily. It has helped remind me not to worry so much and to pray to Him more about what I am going through.

Cindy Lou said...

It seems lots of people get depressed with the gloomy rainy season and other times of the year as well. One verse I computer generate for my cards is Psalms 139:14

I praise you because I am fearully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

God never makes a mistake, and sometimes we just need a reminder of that.

1 Corinthians 2:9 "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him"
God spoke to me this verse when I was concerned about looking for a new home where we were to move. It gave me great comfort, and boy did He bless and answer our prayers.

Truth be told 1 John 4:4 chosen by Naomi would have been my first choice but I have others...

2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come'. It speaks to me of the new life we have in Him and how complete His forgiveness and love is.

Luke 12:32 (NIV)
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.

This is so endearing to me. I love the image of little flock. It is so encouraging when times are tough.

Thanks for all you do for our faith.

The New Jerusalem Bible. I love The Book of Wisdom, it soothes my soul. All of Chapter 7 speaks to me making it difficult to choose one or two lines ...

The Book of Wisdom (7:15)
May God grant me to speak as he would wish and conceive thoughts worthy of the gifts I have received; since he is both guide to Wisdom and director of sages.

Barbara said...

Psalm 25:1-2
To Thee O Lord, I lift up my soul
O my God in thee I trust,
Do not let me be ashamed.

I think I Timothy 6:17 would be great on a card. "God richly gives us everything to enjoy." from the New Century Version. Anything beautiful, butterflies, flowers, landscapes, would work with it.
There are so many great verses!

Isaiah 41:10 "Fear not for I am with you..." what we all need to remember in these troubling days.

Cheryl Winget said...

I would love to receive a new home congrats card that included this verse on the front:

Isaiah 32:18 My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.

Kelly Sas said...

While raising our children this verse was my constant comfort through the trying times. I would love providing supporting comfort to a mom who verbalizes worry over the parenting of her children as all Christian moms do.

Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. (NIV)

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. (NLT)

Matthew 5:3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven".

We live and what can be an awful place, this world we call life, and I think we need a reminder that God has a better place for us and to NOT dispair. Hugs to all.

Psalm 54:4
Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.

Oney said...

Nahum 1:7
"The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him,..."

I think this verse is such a wonderful reminder for us as we face trials in our earthly life. So many times I want to encourage people who are having a rough time--health issues, financial woes, family/relationship problems, etc.--and I find myself coming back to this promise. He is good. He cares for us who TRUST in Him.

Matthew 19:26 With man, this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

I'm reposting this since I didn't realize why everyone was putting this in their comments.. I thought if you clicked the one part of this where it says you gets emails that was all we needed. Love the verses coming in

Becky Green said...

My favorite set would be Micah 6:8!!!! There are some SUPER VERSES IN THAT ONE!!!! :)

Carol said...

I love so many verses, here is one.

..Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.
Psalm 4:6b


Becky Green said...

For a verse I would LOVE to see in stamp form???
That would have to be, MY FAVORITE VERSE!! Luke 1:45, "Oh, how happy is the woman who believes in God, for his promises to her come true." I discovered this verse when I was a teen! My mother took us to a Teen Challenge Banquet & it was the scripture on the Banquet Program! This is the way it was worded. I don't know what version it is! Ever since, it has been my favorite!!!

Barbie D. said...

There are so many wonderful scriptures but I find so many blessings in:
John 1:16
"From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another."
It makes me remember to count my blessings each day and to thank God for them.

Dina K. said...

Prov. 10:7a
The memory of the righteous will be a blessing.

Judy McMullen said...

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of compassion and the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."

Then Peter said until them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

This is a very powerful verse.


Chrisd said...

"In God's hand is the life of every living thing." Job 12:10 RSV
This verse is a favorite of mine and reminds me the God is always with me.

Carpenters said...

I choose 3 John 1:2 (NIV), "Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well." I mostly make birthday and anniversary cards and this verse is great for either occasion and expresses my wishes for the recipient.

Karen Linarez said...

"May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you." Psalm 33:22

I believe this would give encouragement to hope in the Lord, even in these difficult times in our country!

James 1:4
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

This verse keeps me going.

Jonia said...

I love this verse because when I am fighting to keep on I think "be of good cheer, our Lord has already overcome! So I would definitely send this to someone struggling to cheer them up.

John 16:33b "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."

jhet said...

Psalm 33:18 (NLT)
"But the Lord watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love."

A verse which I believe is fitting for encouraging someone and an all-occasion verse as well.

Happy Anniversary ODBD! You have blessed a lot of people (including me) in different ways. God bless you more!

I love the verse Proverbs 31:28 " her children arise and call her blessed".

I have struggles through so many issues to have children and some horrible pregnancies but I am so blessed to have three beautiful girls.

Gloria said...

There have been several deaths of dear friends and loved ones these last 2 years, so I'd have to say that my favorite, at least right now, is Psalms 23:4.

Yea though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

clavell said...

Is. 41:l3 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. KJV

Through so many trials in life I have been so comforted to know that God will not only be with me but will hold my hand through pain, fears, and tears! What a joy to pray, God hold my hand!!


luvmy3kids1 said...

Phil 4:8 "Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute...dwell on these things" NASB

This verse reminds me that I need to keep my focus on what God has planned for me and deters me from getting caught up in what the world asks of me.

I can't see my first comment, so I'll try again. My verse would have to be Psalm 3:3 KJV. When all seems to be unraveling around us, we who can say with confidence, "But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory and the lifter up of mine head" are a blessed people indeed!! When you read Psalm 3:1-5 and see how David trusted in the LORD, I am inspired to keep pressing on. We sing a song at church that quotes this scripture, we just sing it to HIM in praise!! It would be encouraging for so many situations. No matter which version you read it in, it's beautiful! Iris, Saved by Grace

Hi~ This is a great contest...really got me digging into my Bible...and I looked up every Verse on your list. It has been a delightful afternoon!

I have one Scripture, and I chose it because the first time I read it, I felt like I had read the absolutely most amazing thing ever!

I would want all Believers to be sure they knew that they are a delight to the Lord!! What a loving word...delight! Here it is in several versions:

“He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me.” Psalm 18:19 KJV

“He led me to a place of safety; He rescued me because He delights in me.” Psalm 18:19 New Living Translation

“He brought me out into a broad place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me." Psalm 18:19 English Standard Version

“He brought me forth also into a large place; He was delivering me because He was pleased with me and delighted in me."

Psalm 18:19 Amplified Bible

Sonia said...

A number of years ago I read a book called Hinds Feet on High Places. It was an allegory and really spoke to me. Habakkuk 3:19 is the verse that the book was based on.
"The Lord God is my strength,
and He has made my feet like
hinds feet, and makes me walk
on my high places."
This verse has always been an encouragement to me and I can see it being used to encourage others (sympathy, difficult circumstances,
facing a challenging situation, etc.)

I am sure whatever you pick we will all love it.

Scripture Favorites:
Deuteronomy 4:29
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.

To me this is another assurance that I am to seek God first, as I would a great treasure.

Wendy West said...

Psalm 136:1
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.

Charlotte said...

I know it's relatively long (and could be shortened), but Habakkuk 3:17-18 speaks to me of trusting in God regardless of my circumstances. And, with all that is going on in our world today, no matter what I may go through, I can choose to rejoice in God my Savior.

Jessica said...

I would pick Psalm 94:19 "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. NIV

So many people I have talked to recently are suffering from stress and anxiety so how comforting to know the Lord can bring consolation to your soul.

Revelation 5:13-14

"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honor, glory and might, forever and ever! Amen."

I was fortunate enough to attend Luther College and sing portions of Handel's Messiah in a choir of over 1,000 people under the direction of Weston Noble. To this day, the final songs of The Messiah, "Worthy is the Lamb" and "The Amen Chorus" move me to tears.

I'd love to have these verses as a stamp for Christmas and Easter cards in particular.
