What is a Life Verse and How to Find Yours
“What is your life verse?”
I recently asked that question in a blogging group I’m a member of on Facebook. I was blown away by the response I received from the other beautiful ladies in the group. So many ladies responded to me sharing verse after verse from the Bible. Verses that really spoke to their hearts and their souls. Verses that they felt spoke directly to them and brought them comfort, reassurance, support, or encouragement when they most needed it. All of the verses they shared with me are so powerful. I also realized that there are a lot of people, especially non-Christians or new-Christians, who don’t know what the words “life verse” mean.
First, let me explain:
What is a life verse?
A life verse, for those who don’t know, is very simply a Bible verse that holds a special meaning to you and upon which you can rely to bring you comfort or encouragement in your day to day life.
My verse is “God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.” – Psalm 46:5
My faith blogging friends shared their life verses:
How to Find Your Life Verse
It’s simple! Read your Bible and let God’s words speak to you. I found my life verse by accident in 2014.
I’d been a Christian for over a decade at that point but I didn’t have any verse that really struck my heart as being my life verse. I had different verses I referred to at different times when I needed them but I didn’t have one that I felt really defined my every day feeling.
When I lost my job after moving to a new city at the end of 2014 is when Psalm 46:5 really reached my heart. I’d read it before but it didn’t speak to me in the same way it did that night. “God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.” Those words. They were the reassurance I needed that day and they’ve been the reassurance I’ve needed every day since then. They continually remind me that God is within me and He won’t let me fall. I will fail at things I do and I will make mistakes but as a whole, in my life, He is beside me and I’ll be ok. Overall, He won’t let me fall.
Don’t seek out your life verse. Don’t open your Bible with the intent of finding a life verse. Let your life verse come to you. Let God speak to you. When you need it, it will be there, and you’ll know. It will feel like those words were written for you and, every day after that, those words will be written on your heart.
