When i was thinking about my favorite Bible verses it was really hard to narrow it down to just 20 (yeah best believe me). Looking through these verses it struck me how that all of them are verses I learned about or memorized as a teenager and even now as an adult. They each carry memories of various experiences all through the years.
We have one way or another experienced seasons in our lives that can be discouraging and stressful. Whether it’s dealing with the loss of a job, the death of a loved one, or an overall confusion about where life is heading,
God’s Word is an excellent way to lift your spirits and gain a new perspective on any situation. It’s our guide and refresher. These scriptures below are a great starting point for your prayer time and hope-filled conversations.
You can use them as an ever-present reminder that all things are possible with God, and His mercies are new every morning by writing them on little note pads or have them printed out. Keeping them close to the heart helps us see the beauty in everything.
