Bible Verses That Comfort Me

Hi guys! I hope that you’re all doing well. x It has been a while since I did a post sharing some of my favorite Bible verses, so that’s what I’ll be talking about today! Sharing the ones that I love is so much fun, and I also love recommending comforting verses to others. I’m surprised it has been so long since I did a post like this!

Below, you will find a small compilation of Bible verses that, as the title suggests, are of great comfort to me. I’m always finding new verses in the Bible that bring me peace, and the ones for today are just a selection that I frequently come back to. I hope you enjoy! Let me know in the comments below which verses are comforting to YOU. πŸ™‚

My Favorite Comforting Verses

My first favorite is Romans 8. That whole chapter is absolutely amazing, and if I had to pick just one verse from it that blesses me the most, it would be 8:11.

And if the Spirit of Him Who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He Who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit Who lives in you.

I spotted that verse for the first time on Pinterest, no less. It was a while back, and it completely blew my mind. It’s verses like that one that I continually come back to, because like so many others, it’s worth reading over and over again!

My second recommendation is from the beginning of John 15. The first eight verses are a parable Jesus told His disciples, and as I’ve mentioned in my Cultivating A Joyful Life series, I am completely in love with His parables. This one is about how He is the True Vine, and that we are the branches. The fifth verse does a good job of summing it up (see below), but the whole parable is definitely worth reading.

I am the Vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.

It beautifully reminds me to focus on growing in His love, instead of looking to outside circumstances for contentment and happiness. He is the reason for my joy!

For my third choice on this list, I definitely have to include Philippians 1:21.

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

While I’m here on this earth, everything that happens in my life is part of His plans for me! And when my time on this earth is done, I will spend all of eternity by His side. ❀

I’ll have to do a second part sometime! I enjoyed it. Thanks for reading πŸ™‚

This is a favorite of mine because it reminds me to keep my trust in God. He is constant despite my circumstances.
“But blessedΒ is the one who trusts in theΒ Lord, whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8

Thanks Maggie. I have to admit that I haven’t been reading my Bible lately. Thank you for challenging me to spend more time in the word. I do have some favorite verses to share. I love Jeremiah 29:11,13. I also love Hebrews 13:5, and Psalm 23 & Psalm 119:105. I especially love Jeremiah and Hebrews. They are my ultimate favorites.

I absolutely love those verses especially the one from Romans 8. One of my other favourites is from Proverbs 3:5&6 which says… ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight.’ Many Blessings, Grace. XO

I had to wrap my head around Romans 8:11, it has been awhile since I’ve heard that scripture, it’s still so powerful. My favorite scriptures I find myself going back to are John 15:13 and 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. They really speak to me and apply to honestly any situation I face.
