Inspiring Bible verses & promises 2018

So first of all I just have to say, I know we can’t always just isolate one or two verses from the Bible, we have to read everything in context. With that said there are still verses and promises that is so inspiring and if at any time of the year you need some inspiration and more faith please refer not only to this post but to your Bible and read, pray and meditate on God’s word.

I have a post all on my favorite quotes for 2018 and while that is often very motivating, nothing can beat God’s word and His promises because what He speaks is true!

b1We are not guaranteed to be free from troubles, pain and sorrows, but we are most definitely guaranteed that we are not alone, no matter what, you are never alone and therefore holding onto God’s word not only in hard times but in good times as well, in my opinion, is surely the key to a happy and healthy life. Praise Him even in the most difficult times.

b2You see fear is not from God and no matter how hard it is, I have to constantly remind myself that I should not fear, but speaking God’s word into my life and over situations has changed my approach toward difficult situations completely. And know, it doesn’t mean that I don’t have fear, but does help me to focus more on God and trust Him no matter the situation because He knows best! I am not in control, He is.

b5If you are dealing with anxiety in any way, please remember this, such a short and easy verse to remember but so powerful! He loves us so much more than we can ever imagine!

Now you see I could actually quote the whole Bible because this book of life has no set few verses that we should keep close to our heart, we should keep all of it, believe it, pray it and speak it. With that being said I do want to leave you today with one last one, really short but so important especially in the world we life in today…b4

My favorite quotes for 2018

So instead of creating a list with a bunch of quotes, which I actually will if I don’t control myself because I have so many favorite quotes, I have decided to share with you only a few that really inspires me for this year. I will also be sharing with you why I picked them.

q2Albert Einstein once said, “Strive not to be a success, but rather of value” and oh my did this stick in my head for this year! You see the time and place where I find myself in life now, it can be so easy to fall in the mindset of being successful. Now yes I do want to be successful but I have come to the conclusion that being of value, whether it is in someone’s time of need or in your work space or just in life already enables you to be more successful. I mean how can you be a success in the long term if you are not of value anyways? If we focus more on people and relationships success will follow… In this point in my life I am still building a career for myself and personally I have many interests and also many jobs so I can very easily feel like I’m getting nowhere, but I have found that in my head I am constantly reminded of this quote going into this year.

q1This next quote seems to have an unknown author, but regardless this one is so incredibly true and inspiring every time I want to do something and I really just don’t feel capable of it… “one day or day one, you decide.” I mean how straight forward and true is that!ย  Whenever you feel like doing something especially something for your life, career etc. please keep this quote in mind because I know even in my life I find myself always speaking of a dream of mine as “one day when…” and actually that one day will never came if we don’t start now… So no more one days and more day ones, unless it’s something you really need more time for…

q3And lastly, like I have said I have so many quotes I love but I really wanted to narrow it down, “if it costs you your peace, it’s too expensive” – unknown. This is so relevant in all the aspects of our lives and I think it’s important to keep this one in mind. Life is so short and I have learned that we really don’t need toxic people and toxic situations in our lives, it’s best avoiding it where possible. And if you find yourself in a situation where it is unavoidable, please pray to gain the strength to get through it!

And that my lovelies is where I leave you, remember so much can happen in a year so don’t ever give up!
