favorite bible verse or life verse

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 As a teacher, I need to do a lot of planning and preparing. This verse reminds me that both in teaching and in life, I am not in control nor do I need to have all the answers. God will lead the way!

favorite bible verse or life verse

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

This verse was given to me for my confirmation verse. I like this verse because it reminds me that God gave his Son for us all to be saved. Along with his son, he continually blesses us each and every day. God is good!

“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:9 This verse is a great reminder that we can make plans for our lives but God’s master plan is far greater than any plan we may make on our own.
