Hi all! As you may already know, my name is Caroline and I’m so thrilled to be writing this blog post! I have so often found that we get so caught up in our lives that we don’t take time to enjoy the really meaningful things in life. As we go about our lives, sometimes we need to just sit down and relax. I have found that a great way to destress is to read encouraging Bible verses. So as you have probably guessed, today I’m going to share with you some of my favorites Bible verses.
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:28-31)
This verse just really reminds me that when I’m feeling down, He will lift me up. “He gives strength to the weary…” This just really comforts me and I hope it comforts you too.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)
This is a wonderful reminder. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him…” Isn’t this such a great blessing! The fact “that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit,” has to fill you with such hope and wonder.
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,
who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
Isn’t this so comforting. “If God is for us, who can be against us.” Wow. I can’t really say much more. This is truly amazing.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
This has always been a favorite of mine. When it says “plans for welfare and not for evil…” it really hits me that He’s there for us. He’s helping us along the way, even when we can’t tell.
“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)
So for those days that are just terrible, remember “…we do not lose heart…For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison…” This should give us much hope.
I hope those 5 verses will help you throughout your busy lives and give you much comfort. Have a great Valentines Day!!
