I have always known there is a God, but I didn’t really understand what it meant to be a Christian until my senior year of high school. My family went to church, but I always just kind of sat there because I had too, one day I was lying in bed reading an article about God I found on Pinterest and it hit me like a truck, tears were falling and my nose was running.

I realized then that I wanted to know more about MY God and how to live a Christian life. I did all this research and kept journals about the things I’ve read. After spending a lot of time forming my own beliefs about God I realized I was so lost before and now that I have found God I will never stray away. On this list below are ten Bible verses that helped me grow closer to God and I hope it does the same for you.

1.“God is within her she will not fail” Psalm 46:5

This Bible verse really stuck out to me when I was first learning about God. It took me a while to understand but then it finally hit me, if I trust in the lord with all my heart he will lead me to be successful and that isn’t just true for just me but for anyone who puts their faith in God.

2.“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you” Isaiah 43:2

We have all been in some situations where you’ve struggled so much you feel like this is end of the road for you because you feel like a failure, I know I have felt like that multiple times but I have to stop and take a step back and then I realize God is right here fighting this battle with me, I am not alone, you are not alone.

3.“So, do not fear, for I am with you; do not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Do not be afraid because God is with you, don’t be discouraged because you have a righteous God, God will strengthen you and he will help you find your way. God is so powerful he will lift you with his victorious hands.

4.“She is far more precious than jewels” Proverbs 31:10

I love this Bible verse because it shows you how valuable you are to God. It took me a long time to understand this bible verse because for a while I didn’t think of myself this highly but when I found out that God thinks of me with so much grace my thought process changed completely not only did I better myself, I started to understand how beautiful I was.

5. “Use your God given gifts to serve others” 1 Peter 4:10

were all born with these amazing gifts, some of us might have not found our gifts yet or maybe we have we have just realized it yet, but God gave us these gifts to serve others with and that is so amazing. He has given us the power to help others.

6.“A sweet friendship refreshes the soul” Proverbs 27:9

Having someone you can talk to, laugh with, cry with is so important in life. I don’t think I would have made it this far in life without my sweet friends encouraging me and pushing me to be better. Having healthy friendships is so good for you heart, mind and soul.

7.“Be still and know that I am your God” Psalm 46:10

This is my favorite Bible verse I have ever come across. This means so much to me, that I got it tattooed on my wrist. (sorry mom) it has a lot of meaning to me because I would always be so stressed out with my life and how it was going. I always use to think to myself “why would God put me in this situation” but it is because he knows I can handle it. This bible verse is saying be patient, trust in God and let him take control. Once you let God have control of your life you will never go down the wrong path.

8.“He heals the wounds of every Shattered heart” Psalm 147:3

Going through certain circumstances can be so disheartening and sometimes your heart is broken into a thousand pieces and you think you’re never going to be normal again. That’s not the case at all. God is so powerful he can even heal your heart. You have to put your trust in the lord and he will heal all the brokenness.

9.“Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth” 1 John 3:18

You can tell someone you love them all day long until you are blue in the face, but if you don’t show them, then it really has no meaning. Love with purpose, Love each other so deep. Doing simple things for your loved ones, significant other, and even your friends. Love your neighbor like God loves us.

10.“Faith can move mountains” Matthew 17:20

I am a strong believer that we were put on this earth to serve God and to spread his word. Introducing people to his faith is so beautiful. Imagine all the good we can do in this world if people live like Jesus did. Your faith is so powerful and spreading that faith can make a huge difference in our community. the power of our God is so powerful and getting to experience his grace is something I will never take for granted. If your beliefs are strong enough you can accomplish anything and that is what is so amazing about faith. You can do anything with the power of faith in the Lord.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

The World Reminds Me How Broken I Am, But God Reminds Me That I Don't Have To Be Whole

We do not have control over the things that break in our lives, but we can take our broken pieces to the one who will accept us just as we are.

If I am being honest, I am broken.

I've been trying to hide it because a lot of positive things have been happening in my life recently. For example, I am back on track for nursing school, I have three wonderful animals who fill my heart with joy and peace. I have friends and family who would drop everything for me, and I have a fiance who loves me unconditionally--and when I say unconditionally, I mean unconditionally. While I truly enjoy my life, I am still depressed, and anxious. I am still broken, and I am frustrated because of it.

Oftentimes I get so anxious that my head clouds over, I start to shake, and my eyes cannot focus. Sometimes nothing in particular even brings these symptoms on. Like right now, for example, I'm sitting here writing this article and I am shaking. I can hardly focus, and my eyes are blurred over, and I'm not sure why. I love writing, so it doesn't make sense that I am anxious about it right? Wrong. I am in fact not anxious about writing in particular, but about everything else that is going on in my life.

Last night my 95-year-old grandmother, who calls me her little angel, fell, for the third time in two months. At home, I am continuously stressed because my parents act more like a divorced couple than a married couple. I have been working my ass off to try and save up money, but it seems like I will never be able to save enough, especially now that Micheal and I are trying to plan our wedding. It seems that whatever I do upsets someone close to me, in some way shape or form. Whether it's going to a different church, getting married so young, or getting tattoos and piercings on my own body. With all of this stress and pressure from the world and the stress and pressure I put on myself to please others, especially my family members, I often end up feeling anxious, depressed, and ultimately broken.

And I have finally realized that because I live in a broken world, I am broken. I live in a world where people are still discriminated against for the color of their skin. A world where people shoot others out of rage or fear or just because. A world where being a cop is scary, and being a person of color is even scarier. Our world is so very broken that family members stop talking to one another because they do not agree on which political candidate to vote for. I live in a world that puts so much worth into what a person's body looks like, they forget to look deeper than their skin. I have realized that because this world is broken, so are many of the people who live in it.

I know that it does not matter if someone has a good life because depression does not look at how good someone's life is before it chooses to become a part of their life. I have learned that just because a person seems to have everything under control does not mean that they are never crippled by the weight of anxiety. Ultimately, I have noticed that as I look around, that I am not the only broken one.

But just because I and so many others are broken does not mean we are weak.

I have fought like hell every day to keep going, to stay optimistic, to comply with my meal plan and to breathe. Just like so many others who do the same. While the battle never seems to be linear, sometimes, if I become silent for just a moment--if I sit quietly in my chair at church while the congregation worships God so loudly, I can feel it. I can feel peace. I feel it deep in my heart. It feels like my entire body releases. My shoulders drop and I feel my heart smile. It's as if God is right there next to me, sitting quietly in my presence, smiling ear to ear because although I am broken He loves me regardless. When I feel peace in my heart, I accept myself just as I am, broken and shattered pieces included because God does the same. God accepts me, regardless of my brokenness because He loves me, and he loves you too. Regardless of failures and sins and shattered pieces. He picks all of that up along with us, right where we are, and He welcomes us home.

Sometimes I get so caught up in the brokenness of this world that I forget the peace that being still in the presence of God brings me. In the world, I will always be reminded of my brokenness, but in the palm of God, I hear His quiet whisper that says "come as you are, I am happy you have come home".
