Verses Chain

edited December 1969 in Random Issues
Hey Everyone,

I was looking at the prayer chain and I was thinking let's all do a verse chain. I'll start and you guys just tell me your favorite verse. It's a way to get to know ppl. You also have to tell about something in your life that most ppl dont know. You gotta tell the story behind the verse or where you find it. Let me start:

My favorite verse is: Lord, you know all things, you know that I love you. Simon Peter said this when the Lord asked him 3 times if he loved him.

Someting about me that most people don't know is my beirthday is on July 9th.


  • "These things i have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. in the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, i have overcome the world" (John 16:33)

    my favorite part in the tasbeha is the fourth hos
  • I agree MarMar91 every word Jesus said is absolutely great!
    but this is one of my fav. verses
    1 John 2:17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

  • "Jesus replied, 'If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, Be uprooted and planted in the sea," and it will obey you.' " (17:5-6)
  • "Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle" Psalm 144:1

    O man, this verse is awesome. I realize it was David speaking right before he went off to war, but the cool thing is I read it during a break from studying for my chem final. The awesome thing was, it was the first verse I came across during that break, and I had to take the break b/c I became soo stressed about the final during my studying. I got my grade back after the final and I was just like wooow, haha, He prepared my fingers for battle (taking the test!)

  • I really love John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, for whom shall ever believe in him shall not perish, put have eternal life" I really like that verse, it shows you how much was done for you and if you do just as much as believe you will have eternal life.

    the verse is.. "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed" Proverbs 16:3

    this verse kept popping up in my life when i had so much happening and it was a stressful time but God never left me and he kept giving me interesting signs...God kept sending this verse to different places at different times....
    one time was my birthday..i recieved this cool magnet that said this verse..

    2nd time was at my brothers wedding..his wifes bouquet was a bunch of flowers so once she through it..all the girls were able to catch a flower and each flower had a verse attached to it..i got the flower that had the same verse as above!!! freaky huh?

  • These are some of my fav. verses..
    because they really comforted me and lifted me up when i was down ;)
    Matthew 11:28-29
    Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
    Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

    I just think these verses have a really comforting message so whenever you feel overwhelmed or stressed u can always come to God who is always there to help you and help carry your burdens and it helped me to realize that everything is in God's hands and God will take care of everything! :)

    God bless!! ;D
  • I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • Isaiah 12:2 "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also become my salvation.

    I donno why i like this verse so much ........maybe because there is so much meaning to it
  • Isaih 40:31, "But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint."
  • heres another one


    For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

    Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.
  • Psalms

    But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

    O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
  • quote"If the world hates you, know that it hated me befoer it hated you" quote

  • [quote author=MarMar91 link=board=11;threadid=1850;start=30#msg32438 date=1121399117]
    OKay, the following phrase I absolutly love... it might be in the bible, its in st. mena's doxology, and currently my signature:
    "What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?

    its a lot to think about.. I love, and I hope u love it too... keep postin....

    lol yeah its in the bible. Matt. 16:26, Mk. 8:36, and Lk. 9:25

    I LOVE the Gospel of John! there are so many comforting words in it.
    John 15-9-17

    9 As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
    10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.
    11 These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
    12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
    13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.
    14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
    15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
    16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
    17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

    i also like those verses "if the world hates you keep in mind that the world hated me first"


  • sry its just im really lazy about copying these verses from the bible, and a lot of ppl have run out... although i think thats impossible... :)

    i really like this verse, "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Whe Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?" Psalm 27:1 :)

    i like this one too "Do not hide your face from me; do not turn your face away in anger; you have been my help; do not leave me or forsake me, O God of my salvation." Psalm 27:9

    I also like this one- " If anyone thirsts let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water" :)

He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of the water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall not prosper.
