What Verses Help Keep You On Track???

23 Search me, God, and know my heart; 
   test me and know my anxious thoughts. 
24 See if there is any offensive way in me, 
   and lead me in the way everlasting. Ps. 139:23-24

I was doing my bible study during our huge blizzard last night and came across this verse. This verse always touches me and i seem to always come across it when i need it the most. Isn't it so reassuring that we are not in this crazy, big and sometimes intimidating world on our own??!?!

We are currently doing the study on Jonah by Priscilla Shirer. She is absolutely fantastic and i am thrilled to be a part of yet another wonderful study. The study is based on "interrupted lives" and how we approach and deal with them. Do we consider them an interruption or a Devine Intervention? Do we run and hide or embrace what has been placed in front of us? Its such a mind searching study that your likely to get lost in thought. I find myself thinking back to all the different situations i had been in that seemed like huge interruptions in my life, when in fact it was clearly a Divine Intervention. Of course you don't see that when your in the situation. I think what Priscilla is trying to get across is how to react to situations when you are in them. recognize what God is trying to tell you. Look at every situation as a opportunity rather then an interruption.

One of the things i really enjoy about the studies we do at our church is that they allow you to work on yourself and make yourself a better person. It is so wonderful to feel the presence of God all around you no matter where you are. I've decided to have stuck to my mirror or somewhere in my house for my family to see and remember. I think it is a great little prayer to say, so that you can continue to make yourself better and remember you are never alone in this big crazy world.

What are some of your favorite verses, that help keep you on track???


  1. Hebrews 13:5

    Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,

    “Never will I leave you;
    never will I forsake you.”

    thanks for sharing!

  2. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."


  3. I LOVE both of those. All good ones to stick up in your house. Just to remind you. I always need those kind of reminders. Thanks ladies:) xoxo

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

    This spoke to me months ago and then I lost it. Your post helped remind me where to find the verse. Thank you!
