What Is Your Life Verse?

     Christian leaders were asked, "What is your life verse and why is it meaningful to you?"  Their answers are as interesting as they are inspirational.  Watch for Wess Stafford of Compassion International.

     There are two verses that I believe God has given me.
     The first verse that called me is Jude 22.
And of some have compassion, making a difference.
     I have always wanted my life to count for something, to make a difference in this world, to leave it better in some small way for my having been here.
     The other verse is Psalm 27:4
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
     Do you have a life verse?  What is it?

What a great post Donna!! :) I love the verses you chose- so inspiring! You truly are making a difference in the world by blogging here in a corner of the internet for people to visit and be inspired by the words you write!

My favorite verse/life verse is Isaiah 12:2-
Surely God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song. He also has become my salvation.

I love this verse because at times in my life I am afraid of the future and I get scared of what lies ahead. This verse reminds me that God will be there for me and I can trust in Him and I don't have to be afraid. This verse also reminds me that Jesus is my salvation and I have Him as my Savior and even when I don't fit in down here I know that I have an eternal home in heaven where I belong.

Great post Donna, thanks for sharing your verses and being such an inspiration to me!

My life verse is Psalm 45:1
"My heart is stirred by a noble theme
as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer."

for obvious reasons....

lovely post.

We have a family verse which is Romans 1:16, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ...." And I have a personal one which is 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation."

Romans 5: 3-5

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
