Good day, everyone! It’s a new day, and I’m thankful to be here to experience it. How are you doing today? I hope you’re well.
I woke up to rain falling steadily outside of my window. Such a peaceful, relaxing sound it was. I lie in bed listening to the pitter-patter of the rain hitting against the window, and suddenly, I begin to feel a sense of discouragement.
My mind began to flood with statements like:
“You should be further along in life than this.”
“Am I ever going to have a career that I will enjoy?”
“Am I improving?”
I sat up and pondered on the questions that seemed to float freely inside of my mind. As soon as I began to fill the tears form, I grabbed my Bible journal and scribbled down what I was thinking and why I felt the way I did. Almost immediately, Deuteronomy 31:6 came to the forefront of my mind. I stood up and audibly recited that verse repeatedly until I began to feel uplifted. A few moments later, I said a quick prayer, got myself together, and pressed forward with the day.
Have you ever had those moments where you felt insecure, unworthy, or stuck? I have! In those moments, we should go to the Word and read about what God says about us and how He is always here with us. Don’t be discouraged.
Today, I want to share my top three favorite Bible verses. Let me go ahead and say that there are many Bible verses that I favor. Still, I will share these three that I go to regularly for encouragement, enlightenment, and courage.
Nieshia’s Top Three Bible Verses
Deuteronomy 31:6 is my number one go-to verse. When I do not feel my best or something comes up in my life that causes me to fear, I automatically recite this verse. I would consider this my foundational verse.
When I’m feeling less than or ill-equipped, I refer to Psalm 139:14. This verse has gotten me through some tough times. A couple of days ago, an incident occurred that shook my confidence. Instead of falling prey to the negative emotions, I spoke Psalm 139:14 out loud, quite a few times, before pressing on with the day.
Let’s be honest. How often has someone done something to you that you didn’t like, and you wanted terribly to get them back? I have! We will encounter people that will do things to hurt us. It’s not on us to get back at them. Allow God to avenge you.
