Uplifting Bible Passages

A passage that has given me peace for many years is Psalm 23. I like this version the best: "The Lord is my Shepherd; there is nothing I need. He lets me lay down in green pastures; He guides me beside still waters. He leads me along the right path to bring glory to His name. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort and protect me. You set a table in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil; my cup overflows with blessings. Surely the goodness and loving kindness of the Lord will be with me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in His presence forever." 

 

A verse that kept me going when I was three months pregrnant and realized that I was going to go through my pregnancy alone, and that I would be a single mom, for who knew how long (it ended up being two years, but at the time I did not know how long it would be), was Isaiah 41:10. "Do not be afraid, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and I will help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

 

Here are a few other verses I have been medidtatiing on and living by for the past few years:

“Love (and TRUST in) the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not into your own understanding; in all of your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path”

 

“I have learned to be content in every situation.... I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

 

“For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

 

“He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.”

 

“Be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

 

“For God has not given you a spirit of timidity, but of power”

 

“Greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world”

 

“You may say to yourself, "My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me." But remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.”

 

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”

 

“Now to Him who can do ABUNDANTLY MORE than we could ever ask or imagine, to Him be the glory now and forever. Amen”

This is very true. That is my one desire and goal as well, to please Him and bring Him glory, way less of me and so much more of Him.
