"Hoppy" Easter! Hahaha, get it?
I have been studying the Bible recently, and I have been looking at verses that give me a positive uplift. Whenever I am feeling doubtful or anxious, I look up some of my favorite verses to remind myself of how good God is and that everything is going to be alright. So in honor of Easter this past weekend, I thought this Tuesday I would share some of my favorite biblical sayings from the Holy Book:
1.) "Be patient. God is not finished with you yet." - Philippians 1:6
This verse reminds me that when I am in doubt or feeling anxious to remember that God still has work do to make my future bright and complete. It is not over yet.
2.) "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." - Mark 11:24
This verse reminds me that prayer is very powerful and is the answer to any wish or desire. When you pray, good results happen.
3.) "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13
This verse reminds me that Jesus is cable of making anything possible and can give me the strength I need to accomplish anything. Without Christ, I have no strength.
4.) "God can restore what is broken and change it into something amazing. All you need is faith." - Joel 2:25
This verse reminds me during bad times to remember that God is going to fix whatever is keeping me down and will bring me back up. God wants to make sure that each and every one of us are satisfied with happiness. When praying and trusting Him, anxiety and broken hearts can be cured.
5.) "Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly." - Micah 6:8
This verse reminds of three inspiring meanings to remember. To "do justice" is to have a sense of what is right and wrong. To "love mercy" is to be loyal towards both people and God, also known as hesed which is the Hebrew term for "loyal love" or "loving-kindness". To "walk humbly" is to understand the heart's attitude toward God. Each action of the verse has a meaning to live by.
6.) "Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor." - Proverbs 21:21
This verse reminds me that kindness is an important trait to have. Some people may view being nice as a weakness, but it truly has great power towards anybody, even enemies. When you show kindness, God rewards you with great things.
7.) "Whoever believes in me has eternal life." -John 6:47
This verse reminds that when death comes, I will be reunited with Him in heaven forever.
8.) "You are beautiful. For you are fearfully and wonderfully made." - Psalm 139:14
This verse reminds me that God created me in the image He wanted to. I feel beautiful, wonderful, and strong knowing that He made me into his ideal view, and I praise Him for that. Everyone is created the way God wants us to be, and that is what makes us all beautiful and special.
9.) "If God is all you have, you have all you need." - John 14:8
This verse reminds me that if life ever feels empty, that God always has my back and is with me. With Him, I know that I will never be alone and I will never be let down.
10.) "With God, all things are possible." - Matthew 19:26
This verse pretty much sums up every verse that is in the Bible, enough said.
