life's verse and a note for contest winners

For those of you who won the contest -- remember that you need to now offer three prizes on your blog!  

And now, for today's post...

My life's verses are Romans 12:1-2.  I'm not sure when or why they became that.  I don't remember actually picking them.  I was going to say that they are the verses that I try to live by, but I guess I try to live by all of them.  But these are uppermost in my mind.
To me a life's verse and a favorite verse are not the same thing.  My favorite verses are those that encourage me and give me joy.  I guess my life's verse is the one that I feel like is the theme of my life?  Does that sound right?

1Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

As for my favorite verse - I could never even begin to choose.  There are hundreds!

So, tell me.  What is your life's verse?  And if you have a favorite, share that as well.


  1. Romans 12: 1 & 2 are great verses to live by. My favorite part of the Bible is Psalm.

  2. Colossians 2:8

    (Also love Col. 1:27 and Acts 2:40 and your selections, too.)

  3. I selected 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 as my life verse some time ago because God has carried me through some difficult times and I hope to be a comfort to others with the love and comfort HE showered and still showers on me.

    "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."

    I have many verses that are favorites like you do too Kay... I wouldn't know where to begin.


I love to hear your thoughts!
