This links page lists all the scriptures used in the writing of the
WORD FOR TODAY daily devotionals. These links will take you directly to the writing you seek. Duplicate links mean that the scripture was used on more than one occasion.
You are welcome to use these words to share the Gospel of our Lord Jesus. Please remember to give credit to the Author, the Lord God Almighty, who has given you these gifts, and keep in remembrance this vessel, Peggy Hoppes, which He used to bring them to you.

When researching, I use several versions of the bible, including the New International Version and English Standard Version. Due to copyright restrictions, I have not included quotes for the scriptures on some of the archives, but highly encourage you to open your own bibles to read the scripture passages for yourselves. Where scripture is quoted, it is usually the American Standard Version or World English Bible which belong to the public domain. Any other versions used in quotes are identified.
