8 Verses You Don’t Know But Totally Should

The Bible is a large book. We have our life verses, our memory verses and our bumper sticker verses that we have heard quoted a hundred and two times throughout our lives. We all have those verses we have heard so many times we can quote them from memory even though we have no idea where they actually are in scripture…or if they’re even in scripture. (Example - Cleanliness is next to godliness. Heard this my whole life. Can quote it. Found out in my late teens it’s not even in the Bible. Anyways, I digress.)

Today I wanted to share a handful of verses that I love but I feel like they could use some more love. These are verses that are awesome (as all scripture is) but we just don’t hear them quoted as often as others and that okay. That makes these like hidden treasures!

4 Life Changing Verses for Those Who Feel Forgotten

A Christian looks up from the struggles one day and realizes he doesn't remember the last time he felt the presence of God. He doesn't remember the last thing he heard Him say. He acknowledges that in the busyness of ministry he may have neglected his relationship with the Lord but he is startled by how far away He feels. The distance causes guilt and shame which is used by the enemy to deceive. The Christian feels forgotten.

This feeling comes in many packages. Each unique and each painful.

No one likes to be forgotten. No one likes to feel like everyone's hanging out without them. It hurts when we fill like we're nothing but an afterthought to those we love. Here are four of my favorite scriptures for when I'm feeling forgotten.

Verses for the Overwhelmed Heart - 4 Scriptures to Fight Overwhelm & Fatigue

     We all know how it feels to be completely overwhelmed. I feel like I have been super acquainted with this feeling lately. From planning a wedding in less than three months to quitting my job to pursue my dreams, I have been a little overwhelmed. I currently feel like I am standing on a cliff looking across a huge Grand Canyon sized valley at my success with nothing but a couple 2x4's and a hammer at my feet trying to figure out how to even start building the bridge to get over there.

If you are in this place today as well, then here are some of my favorite scriptures for when life is just plain overwhelming. If you are not in this place you should still maybe jot these scriptures down for next time life sneaks up behind you and starts pelting you with expectations and deadlines.

Verses For When You Are Lonely - Faith

Loneliness is an emotion we are all familiar with. I don’t think I have ever met a person that has never walked through a season of feeling lonely. Loneliness can be interpreted in many different ways to different people but the type of lonely I am talking about is that feeling that you are completely alone even when surrounded by people. It is especially upsetting if you care about those people. I am referring to the type of loneliness that whispers to your heart that no one understands you or your problems. The loneliness that drains you and causes you to isolate yourself. It’s that feeling that no one cares about what’s happening to me so I am going to disconnect from everyone.

The More I Seek You

I wanna sit at Your feet
Drink from the cup in Your hand
Lay back against You and breathe
Feel Your heartbeat
This love is so deep, It's more than I can standI melt in Your peace, It's overwhelming.
Guys, this song has been on repeat in my mind all day. They even played at church this evening. That line... "Lay back against You and breathe, feel Your heartbeat" Is my prayer. I just want to fall into His embrace. It's the only place that I know of to run to knowing I can just rest.  In His presence I can breathe. His presence is like breathing and I have one of those moments where I realize that I have been holding my breath for far too long. I just need Him closer than my skin. I can't stand any space between us. I want to hear His heartbeat. I want to memorize His heart. 
I don't know if this is making any sense. I just keep thinking of Psalm 42 where David says, "Like the deer pants for the water, so my soul pants for you God. When can I get to this God?" I am desperate for this God. I can't live without Him. I can't breathe without Him. 
My soul is hungry for more of Him this evening. I love these kind of evening. May they never fade.
