I have never read the bible cover to cover. I will say that I have started to read sections of the Bible to keep my grounded. To allow me to remove some of this weight from my shoulders. I have written down scriptures that mean a lot to me. I write these to pass them on, as a peace offering of healing. To those whom may stumble by and need words of inspiration. Something to turn to… a book… a chapter… a verse. Most of all to know to let those whom need these words that someone else has felt these things too. I have. I understand
Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know I have plans for you” I have quoted this verse a million times. I have come close to tattooing it on my wrist so i don’t forget it. I will never understand his plans. I am not sure I will ever completely accept them, however I am going o trust that he knew what he was doing
Romans 5:8 – “I loved you at your darkest“. This is John’s verse. He has loved me through the hardest of times and the worst of times.
Samuel 1.17 – “You are the one we prayed for“. I carried 2 of my 5 pregnancies to full term. It was magical and perfection.
James 1:27 – “refuse to let the world corrupt you” It is hard at times, to read the headlines. It makes you think of all the bad and ugly isn’t he world. It is also hard to push your chin up through the negativity in your own head. This makes me remember that I need to push through.
And it my darkest hours… I must undestand
2 Timothy 4:17 – “But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength“.
Proverbs 31:25 – ” She is clothed with strength and dignity and laughs without feat of the future”
The future. Remember the future has millions of possibilities in store.
