I may not always show it, but my faith is very important to me. Before I started my morning routine I was very inconsistent with reading my devotionals and Bible. Putting my quiet time in my morning routine has helped me get into the habit and connect with God more. Reading my devotional (usually one from Sara Young), doing a Bible study, or memorizing bible verses, are the first things I do after my workout.
In today’s Morning Routine Breakdown post I want to share with you my favorite Bible verses and what I’ve learned from them.
2 Samuel 22:29 – you Lord are my lamp; the Lord turns my darkness into light.
This verse really stuck out to me for the first time while I was listening to a podcast sermon. I was in an extremely dark place at the time and hearing it gave me that little nudge of hope that I desperately needed.
Psalm 23:4 – Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me.
This verse is similar to the first one, but it shows that God is with us in the dark times. He can provide a source of comfort while we wait for things to get better. Through Him we can have the hope in knowing that things will get better.
Ecclesiastes3:1- There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.
This verse reassures us that the bad times won’t last, but on the other hand neither will the good. We will all face some sort of trials in our lives, or maybe already have. This verse shows us that there are good seasons on the other side of those trials. We can learn something in each season of our lives by growing closer to God. He has a purpose for each of them. I go into my take on this verse even further in this post. Check it out if you haven’t already..
Hebrews 12: 1-2 – Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
This passage has a very special meaning to me. It was my hall verse in my first year of college, well technically third because I was a transfer student. That year laid a lot of groundwork for me in my spiritual journey. I learned a lot about the Bible and grew in my faith in ways I didn’t know I needed to. Whenever I come across this passage in my quiet time all the memories of that year come flooding back, along with all that God taught me during that time.
Romans 12:12 – Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.
This verse may be short, but it clearly maps out how we should live no matter our circumstances. I’m not a great painter but this is the first, and currently only, Bible verse I have painted. I’ve got it hung up in my room as a constant reminder
