Bibleverses.com – Aspiring to Serve Others

Are you like me, always trying to find that specific bible verse to fit the current circumstance you are in? Sometimes it is a good situation and other times not so much.

In today’s world, the internet is bringing information to us at record speeds. Fortunately, there are sites available that help put God’s Word at our fingertips, helping to counteract an overwhelming and never-ending stream of thoughts that seem to bombard us daily. With a few key strokes, we can find comfort, compassion, mercy, and grace.

Bibleverses.com is one such site.

In 2015, the site was restructured to not only accommodate those who see without issue, but to also be accessible by those who may suffer some type of visual impairment, such as low vision or color blindness. This is truly a unique aspect of the site.

Along with providing free access to the entire Bible online, subscribers can receive a verse of the day sent directly to their email. The site also offers a quick reference list of the top verses on specific topics, such as children, marriage, healing, and worry, just to name a few.

Another defining characteristic of the site is the associated blog. The posts contained within the blog are from both site administrators as well as Christian bloggers across the nation. I have had the pleasure of contributing to the site myself, and you can see those contributions here:

In addition, you may search for specific scriptures using the website’s search engine. And don’t forget to follow them via your favorite social media outlet: Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

As the site continues to grow, be on the look out for more resources, posts, and site extras!

Seven Verses for Your Week!

Let’s take a few minutes to start our week off right. This post has seven scriptures – one for each day! Let these verses speak to you and create a sense of peace and hope within you that you may not have experienced last week.

Sunday – The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Monday – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Tuesday – For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5

Wednesday – Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Thursday – Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Friday – So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Saturday – Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” John 6:35

I believe God never wastes a word. When we read scripture, we sometimes think that we have happened upon them. But I believe they are put before us for a reason. When we slow down and allow God to work on our hearts through the words we read, something changes on the inside of us. Each change brings us closer and closer to Him. And that is just where I want to be! How about you?

Twelve Scriptures of Christmas

Nativity scene

Today, I want to share 12 sets of scriptures that I reflect upon during Christmas. Some of them may be familiar verses heard at Christmas, and others are a deeper reflection of the promised Savior. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John 1:1-5

“For the time is coming,” says the Lord, “when I will raise up a righteous descendant from King David’s line. He will be a King who rules with wisdom. He will do what is just and right throughout the land. And this will be his name: ‘The Lord Is Our Righteousness.’ In that day Judah will be saved, and Israel will live in safety. Jeremiah 23:5-6

So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. John 1:14

“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’” Matthew 1:23
