Verses for Encouragement

Thanks for visiting the site today!

We all have tough days, and Gods Word has the power to lift our spirits!  On my cell phone, in notes, I have encouraging verses to refer back to and think about throughout the day.

Here are a few, and I pray the lifter of your head (Jesus) speaks through His words, right to your heart!

But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.  -Psalm 3:3

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. -Psalm 36:5

Be strong and courageous, the Lord is with you wherever you go. -Joshua 1:9

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.  -Psalm 23:6

I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance! (To the full, until it overflows)  -John 10:10


Beautiful One

Did you know you’re beautiful?  Absolutely stunning.  Put your self worth in line with how God sees you, and it will change your days.  No one can do you like you can!  Each person has their own beautiful purpose in the world.  Like parts of a body, you are part of the body of Christ with your own function in the big picture of life (1 Corinthians 12:12-37)!  Don’t waste any more days trying to be like someone else, or putting yourself down.  Only you can do what God has for you, and you’re so very beautiful right now!


The Good Word

We are all waiting for God on something, aren’t we?  This verse is so encouraging for me during ‘the wait’.  While it may seem you have been forgotten, or that your dreams may never come to pass, remember this verse.  Every single day of your life has been planned, it is not random.  A majority of your time may seem to be ‘waiting’, so find joy in each day and know God has NOT abandoned you.   As a matter of fact, He has big plans for you in His perfect time!


The Good Word

Thank you for responding to me; you’ve truly become my salvation!  The stone the masons discarded as flawed is now the capstone!  This is GOD’s work.  We rub our eyes- we can hardly believe it!  This is the very day GOD acted- let’s celebrate and be festive!  Salvation now, GOD.  Salvation now!  Oh yes, GOD- a free and full life!  Psalm 118:24

One thing God has taught me through His Word is that salvation begins right now, not just when your time is up here on earth.  This is great news!  We are offered life how God has it, right now.  Celebrate knowing you are offered a free and full life today, thanks to His amazing grace!

I currently have this verse as my ‘home screen’ on my cell phone.  No coincidence there, I believe He wants me to keep saying this to myself, to KNOW it in my Spirit.

No matter what the world says, or what I may think about myself sometimes, my God sees me as beautiful!  It doesn’t say ‘He calls me beautiful one… when I do everything right, when I am perfect for Him, when I wear the right size’.  No.  He calls you BEAUTIFUL one, ALWAYS.  Even right now, just as you are.

Stand on His Word,

He calls you beautiful one. XO


I’m excited to share a book with you.  Friendly, witty, and hard to put down, Holly Wagner helps us to use God’s Word to gain sanity, and peace in life’s storms.  Thank you, Holly, for the great and VERY helpful book Find Your Brave.


There was a point in time when I had to make a decision.  To dig my heels in and say; “ok, the Bible is true”,  before I knew 100% that it was.

That is hands down the BEST decision I have ever made.

Since then, I have made it a point to study the Word of God everyday.  And now, years later, I can tell you without a doubt it is true, and my life is AMAZING!

Find out for yourself!

Here are some great tools that have helped me along the way!  With more to come in later posts.

The Message version of the Bible {MSG} and the Amplified version {AMP} are great! Give them a try.

Bible Gateway ~ I have this as an app on my iPhone, set to the MSG version.  Each day there is one verse {a ‘Verse of the Day’}.

The Message Promise Book ~ The Contents have a word {Ambition, Anger, Belief, Children…} and verses that go along with it.  It’s small, so it fits right into my purse!

Teachers of the Word ~ I regularly listen to Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, and John Gray…. all their own style and all FANTASTIC! Sometimes I go on YouTube or their website and play it over bluetooth in my car.

Christian Music ~ I LOVE Christian music.  Some of my favorite songs right now are Whole Heart, Bulletproof, and Wonder.  It lifts me up, I love the sound, and it teaches me Truth all at the same time!

Go ahead.  Dig your heels in.
