Show Us Your Life: Bible verses

This week at Show Us Your Life, it is all about your favorite Bible verses.

I think it is so awesome how a verse can mean one thing during a certain season of your life and another during a different season. I am so thankful for this last year because it has really taught me to study the word and I have a new found love for it, a love I never had before. So I am excited to share with you the verses the Lord has laid on my heart over this last year.

Here are a few of my "cling to" verses:

"But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7-8

The verse above is such a gentle remainder for what happens when we trust in the Lord & have confidence in him. And makes me only want to strive to continue to bear fruit even when I feel I'm in a drought.

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

"In due time..." is often my motto when I'm waiting upon the Lord. And this verse definitely been on that cling to when I feel like giving up.

And then there are SO many verses the book of Romans that I just love. At this point in my life, Romans is where I go to seek comfort, hope, and peace. I read these verses on a daily basis!

"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." Romans 8:18

"But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently." Romans 8:25

"...and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hopes does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." Romans 5:2-5

  2. Never been to Kelly's Korner, may have to go check it out later. Love your verses though. My favorite is:
    So do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
    Isaiah 41:10

    A counselor at summer camp gave me this verse during my week there in the summer of 1996 and 2 days after I got home from camp my dad found out his cancer had come back. So the verse came at the perfect time and i kept it hanging on my wall in my bedroom to help me remember who was in control of it all.
