5 Verses Every Woman Should Know

One of the coolest things about the Bible is that there’s a verse or passage for almost any situation you could be going through. I know for me, I always stumble upon the right verse at the right time.

There are so many verses in the Bible that talk about the strength of a godly woman and how God fulfills his promises to those that are faithful. These five verses especially are good reminders of how much God loves us and how he wants us to view ourselves!

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” – Proverbs 31:25

God reminds us who we are and how he sees us through his eyes. Especially in the book of Proverbs, the Bible talks about a godly woman who puts her faith and hope in Jesus Christ. In Proverbs 31:25, the Bible talks about a woman who is strong, bold, and confident in the Lord and her future. It’s one of my favorite verses to remind myself of daily.

“Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.” – Luke 1:45

When we talk to God, we shouldn’t be sitting around and wondering if he’s listening. When we trust fully in God and put our faith in him, he will fulfill his promises. A woman of great faith and trust is truly blessed by Christ.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalms 139:14

When you’re feeling low or down on yourself, read this verse as many times as you have to. YOU are fearfully and wonderfully made. God created you in his image, and all of his creations are made without flaw, including you! It’s a verse that brings me peace knowing that the creator of the universe wonderfully created me, too.

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is in vain. But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” – Proverbs 31:30

To fear the Lord doesn’t mean to be scared of the Lord. It means to be aware of his authority over our lives, and to fear his judgement and power. When we submit to him and what he wants for our lives, the best is yet to come. God’s plan is so much better than ours, we just have to trust in him!

“God is within her, she will not fail.” – Psalm 46:5

This verse doesn’t say she might fail or she could possibly fail. It says she will not fail, which is something we can put our trust in and a promise that God reassures us with. Things fall apart so better things can fall together. So, if you think you’ve failed, see how God uses that to lead to something so much better.

Meditate on these verses and memorize them if you have to! Knowing God’s scripture and having them ready in your head to think back on is always helpful. Are you scared for an important opportunity coming up? Remember Psalm 46:5. Are you feeling low and down on yourself? Remember Psalms 139:14.

There is something in the Bible for every situation you could be going through! You just have to search for it. 🙂

“I Will Not Be Shaken”

“Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My…

“Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.” – Psalm 62: 5-7

Psalm 62:5-7 gives me endless comfort and strength throughout the hardest days of my life.

It’s a passage from the Bible that gives me a sense of power, pride, and security in God, our rock and our refuge!

There are so many different characters from stories and parables in the Bible that show an amazing display of strength and refusing to let the devil shake them.

If we think of the story from the Bible of when Jesus calmed the storm, we see a beautiful display of faith by Peter, one of his disciples. As Jesus calmed the wind and the waves, he walked on water and called Peter out to do the same.

Peter walked toward Jesus but began to sink due to his fear of the storm around him.  When his faith was shaken, he sank, but when he listened to Jesus and put his trust in him, he was able to walk on water alongside the Son of God!

This is a perfect metaphor as to how we should live our lives, as well. When our faith falters, we sink and drown in our own worries and fears. But when we put our trust in God, we can walk on water right alongside him.

Let’s take a look at another example of a fearless leader and devoted Christ follower.

David, Ephrathite’s youngest son from Bethlehem, faced a 9-foot giant named Goliath and was face-to-face with his sword and spear. David carried just a sling and a stone and faced the giant with full confidence that the Lord would deliver.

After killing Goliath and winning the victory for his people, his faith in the Lord was proven steadfast and unwavering. David declared, “I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty.” He had God on his side and was able to face his battle knowing God would fight it for him!

What do these two stories have in common?

Faith.

These two people would not be shaken due to their unwavering faith in God.

When I go through a hard time in my life, I oftentimes lean too much on my own control and not enough on God’s control. God is our mighty rock, and we shouldn’t forget that he’s always there to pick us back up when we fall!

When we need a friend to lean on and go to for help, make that person your heavenly father. When your faith grows stronger, your fears grow weaker.

So… stop holding back! Put your trust in God and watch him fight your battles for you. At the end of the day, let the world know that you will not be shaken because you have God on your side! 🙂

If It Doesn’t Open, It’s Not Your Door

Have you ever wanted something so badly that when it fails to happen you feel defeated and alone? Take situations in my life for example. In high school, I would…

Have you ever wanted something so badly that when it fails to happen you feel defeated and alone?

Take situations in my life for example. In high school, I would fall head over heels for a boy just to find out he has no interest in me. I would get excited about possible work opportunities to find out they’ve already contacted someone else for the job.

Life’s not always easy when an opened door that you wanted and hoped for ends up closing with little to no explanation. You thought life was working itself out only to find out that God doesn’t want you there at all.

There’s a concept that I heard a long time ago that never really made sense until now: If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.

I would more often than not find myself getting so frustrated at God when things didn’t go my way. I would want something so badly only to watch it disappear right in front of me.

With that being said, how do you know which doors God opens for you?

Psalm 25:4-5,9 says, “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.”

First, comes prayer. Prayer is so much more powerful than you think! Although we may not see our prayers answered right before our eyes, God is always working on our behalf.

Pray for guidance and knowledge. Pray for God’s plan to be revealed to you amidst the confusion and uncertainty. God wants us to call out to him, not lean on our own control.

Luke 11:9 says, “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

If you want something so badly you can’t stand it, ask for it. All God wants from us is to simply look to him. How can something we want be given to us if we don’t even ask for it to begin with? If we seek something with all our heart, God will deliver. And if he doesn’t, then he didn’t for a reason.

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. And if God closes a door in your life, realize that. Don’t try to force something that isn’t there.

Lastly, I’ll leave you with a quote that I think so many of us need to hear:

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.”

I love the way this is phrased! You may think one door leads to so much happiness but behind it is actually the opposite. Trust God and trust his plan. You’ll be happy you did!

Psalm 23:4 says “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” It is easy to get caught up in fear.

It is much easier to give into the feelings of fear instead of standing our ground. Even though we walk through dark times, times of sadness and anxiety, we don’t have to fear because God is with us. When I am feeling particularly fearful, I stop and pray and ask God to calm my heart. I ask Him to remind me that He has everything under control, and that I don’t need to fear because He is right beside me. I cannot tell you how relieving it is to remember that God has got it all figured out, and I just need to let Him do His thing.

In times of fear or uncertianty, just remember who is behind fear and who is the author of peace!

Why You Should Learn to Love Yourself Before Loving Him

Relationships can be tricky.  At our age, we’re experiencing a crucial time of self-growth, love, and confidence.  When I first started my YouTube channel, I didn’t expect to grow so much, so quickly.  With that growth, I experienced both good and bad feedback, both nice and hurtful comments.  DespiteChelsea Crockett - Love Yourself Quote the negativity, I discovered who I was over the years and have learned a few reasons why you should love yourself before loving someone else!

Self-confidence is a wonderful thing to have, but it can be so hard to attain.  Whenever I feel down or start to doubt myself, I always turn to the Bible for advice.  On the subject of loving myself, I also refer to Psalm 139:14.  It says, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.”  This is a verse that you can always lean on for a little boost! 🙂

As far as the reasons why this factor is so important before starting a relationship, there are many!  I’ve learned from experience that if you are still trying to find who you are as a person, it will be 10x harder when you’re looking to someone else for reassurance.  When you love who you are and are 100% confident with your own values, morals, and beliefs, that’s when you should share your life with another person!  I promise you, you will be so much happier.

Learn to love yourself and you’ll be so happy you did!

Love, Chels
