Bible Verses–Some Favorites

I really should be writing a paper right now, but I’d rather write on here instead. (Don’t worry, I won’t fail my paper for the sake of blogging…I hope). It’s just that I had a realization about my blog. Lately, my blog has been seeming a little …what’s the word?…superficial. I guess. Most of what I write about is entertainment-driven. Don’t get me wrong–I love writing (and reading) book reviews and other things like that–but sometimes I feel like my blog should go deeper. I think the problem is that when I write anything too deep or personal, it feels like I’m writing in a diary. But this is a blog and not a diary, and I don’t want to share my personal feelings with the whole internet. Know what I mean? But I do want to let you all know that–even though I do tend to write only about light-hearted subjects (as I mention in the “About This Blog” tab above)–that’s not all I think about. So, for this blog post, I wanted lean toward a subject that’s really close to my heart and share with you some of my favorite verses. And you can share yours, too! 🙂

 Psalm 103: 8-12 — “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

Romans 8:1 — “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

Matthew 6:31-34 — “Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But  seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Ephesians 2:8-10 — “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

Psalm 116:1-2 — “I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.”

Psalm 94:17-19 — “If the Lord had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence. When I thought, ‘My foot slips,’ your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up. When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.”

 

I could really list so many more, but I’ll end for now with Job 1:3a: “He possessed 7,000 sheep.” Sorry, I can’t help but mention it. Just imagine that many sheep!

And on that note, I’ll end. 🙂
