    Ashley, I love all of these verses but my favorites have been my favorites for years. The one from Jeremiah about God’s plans to prosper us, the promise never to leave or forsake us, and the reassurance that God is not finished with us yet. Hooray for that one! For all of them!!

    There are so many, but one of my favorites is:
    Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s and He will make me walk on my high hills. -Habakkuk 3:18-19

      I love that passage, Stephanie! I’d not heard it before – thank you for sharing!

    Oooh, great words (of course!). I agree that there’s so many to share. What’s coming to mind right now is Hebrews 4:15 – “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.” I find it so encouraging that Christ knows, understands, and most of all, saves.
