Just wanted to know what everyone's favorite scripture is. I have many but the one I like the best is in Jeremiah 29:11 & 13 For I know the plans I have for you, Says the Lord, plans not to harm you but to give you a hope and a future. and when you seek me and seek me with all your heart, you will find me.

PSALMS 91:1-16 Abiding in the Shadow of the Almighty 1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation; 10 there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

I love that Jeremiah passage too. But my absolute favorite is, "I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me." Phil. 4:13. My birthday is 4/13 and when I was a teen, I searched the whole Bible to see if there were any 13th verses in the 4th chapters that I might claim as my own. The only one I loved was Phil. 4:13.

Oooh, that's one of my absolute favorites for sure! Even when we haven't got a clue what's going on in our lives, where we'll be tomorrow or how we'll get there, God knows all and will reveal in His time. Another is the one my friend Deborah mentioned above, Prov 3:5. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding. I've made such a mess out of most of my life, I need to give every bit of it to God and trust that He knows best.

This is a very comforting verse in the bible. Did you know there is also a birthverse for the day you are born? Check out this discussion that I just started. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1473522.aspx This one has became my favorite since it's my birthverse. Romans 8:24 NIV For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has?
