Philippians 1:3 is my favorite Bible verse because I can relate to it. Unfortunately, many family members of mine have passed away. However, when they’ve passed, I have never gotten angry with God.
The 23rd Psalm has given me a sense of peace and comfort throughout my spiritual journey. In fact, it was one of the first passages of Scripture I committed to memory.
When I was younger, I struggled with anxiety about what would happen the next day. It got to the point where I could not sleep well at night. “What-ifs” would whirl around my head, like, What if someone came into my room? or What if I don’t wake up from my sleep?
Matthew 25:40 helps me when I am saying or doing something to or for someone. It reminds me that I want to be known for treating all people as God does and love them as He loves, for all people belong to God.
In our spiritual lives, we must keep on running, knowing that we are not alone. The One who has set the race before us is always with us.
God has creative ways of bringing Scripture into our minds to encourage us. Joshua 1:9 became a favorite of mine during an anxious period in my life.
Have you ever felt like God doesn’t hear you when you pray? I had the privilege of listening to a message at a recent women’s retreat.
