In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

I thank my God every time I remember you.
