More “Highlights” - from Courtney Etzel

By Courtney Etzel

I have many Bible verses that I like. Some are for guidance, verses that spoke to me at a specific point in my life, and some are just reminders of God’s promises.  Here are a few of the verses that I have highlighted.

Philippians 4:6-7Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

I tend to be a worrier so this a verse I turn to time and time again. 

1 Corinthians 10:13 (MSG)No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.

What a great reminder that I am not the only one who is tested, nor am I the first to be tested. I love how the Message says it.

Joshua 23:10Each one of you will put to flight a thousand of the enemy, for the Lord your God fights for you, just as he has promised

 I love the reminder in that God is always in our corner, fighting for us.


These are just a few verses that I have book marked.  What verses have impacted you?
