What Keeps Me Going This Week: Romans 15:4

What Keeps Me Going This Week: Romans 15:4 September 21, 2012

When life is tough — or even when it’s not — I’ve found comfort in the Bible. My favorite parts change from month to month, week to week, or even day to day.  Honestly, I should read it more than I do, because I’ve also found that life is better when I hang on to its promises and truth.

Here’s the verse that’s speaking to me right now, Romans 15:4.

Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

The Bible is filled with all that we need to live the Christian life. It’s amazing that God loves me enough not only to provide wisdom, but encouragement for the path as well.

This week, what verses give you hope?

    Don’t ever leave the Word of God. It is a light unto your path and instruction on how to live your life so that you may be a shining example of what he can do for you and others

    Isaaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    Deuteronomy 31:6
    6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

    I love that you are not afraid to share your Christianity with us, so thank you so much for sharing your faith with us Bristol!!! I find my comfort in the bible too, and just like you I feel I should read it more than I do, because you are right, it does make life better when we have those promises and truths to hang on too 🙂

    Thank you again Bristol, keep letting your beautiful light shine 🙂

    Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

  • bellagrazi

    Amen. I have no doubt that God’s path will lead you to the right place, Bristol. You just have to follow it. Which is not always easy. But it is a blessing in disguise.

    Bristol, I really appreciate where you stand in your relationship with God; you’re an awesome woman of God!
    Here’s one of my favorite scriptures: “I can do all thing through Christ who strengthens me.” – Phillipians 4:13

    Psalm 119 ( all 176 verses!)
    Long ago I went through a time of affliction and tribulation and because of it grew very close to the Lord. Today I am glad I went through all that, because it has opened my eyes to the Goodness of God.
    Verse 71 of Psalm 119 sums it up:
    71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

    Bristol, It’s so nice to be able to have Scripture Sharing with you and everyone here even though we’re all not able to be sitting together in my living room with our Bibles open, a fresh pot of coffee brewing and something delicious baking in my oven 🙂
    My scripture today is close to my heart and has helped me get through the many times when I was terribly afraid.
    Isaiah 41:10
    So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

  • But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in[a] Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.

    Philippians 3:7-9
