The Bible is full of many, many things.  It’s full of wisdom, encouragement, lessons, and lots of other valuable things to apply to your life.  I recently came across an article on Pinterest that had a list of “Bible emergency numbers” that apply to specific problems and struggles you might be going through.  Here are some key verses that can help!

  • For when you’re upset – John 14:1-4. Chelsea Crockett - Bible These verses focus on God’s perfect kingdom He has awaiting you.  It gives you hope and reassurance that there is so much more to life.  Don’t get upset over the little things!
  • For when you’re lonely – Psalm 23.  This chapter talks about how the Lord is your shepherd and is always with you.  It gives you comfort knowing that God is with you all the days of your life!
  • For when you’re anxious – Philippians 4:4-9.  Anxiety is a thing that everyone gets.  Whether it’s over a test or a sticky situation, give all your cares to God!
  • For when you’re depressed – Psalm 27.  This chapter is one of my favorites.  It ends with saying “wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”  There are the best days of your life ahead of you!
  • For when you’re lost – Psalm 73:23-26.  These verses talk about how God will guide you even if your flesh and heart fail you.  Seek His counsel because He has you in the palm of His hand!

I hope these help you beat your struggles one verse at a time!

3 Verses to Pray for Patience

We’re in the generation of wanting things at the snap of our fingers, right when we ask for it.  We often find it hard to trust that God’s plan is perfect and think that ours may be better in the long run.  It can sometimes get frustrating when we have to wait and be patient.  It may even start to feel like the wait is too much to bear.  Luckily, God gives us His word to help us turn to when we’re in need of patience!Chelsea Crockett - Patience Bible Verse

Proverbs 14:29 says, “Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.”  In this verse, God is telling us to be slow to anger.  We often get so frustrated when God doesn’t answer our prayers right away, or even at all.  We need to pray for understanding and self-control.  If you can’t change the outcome, change the perspective!

Ephesians 4:2 says, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”  This verse is a perfect verse to reflect on when struggling with patience with other people.  Be humble and kind, having love for even those who hurt and persecute you!

2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”  This is one of my favorite verses about patience.  God is never slow or absent, He is simply fulfilling His will for you (and His plan is perfect!)!  He is patient with us as we should be with Him!

I urge you all to pray for patience.  It will change your perspective and give you peace in all situations.

Love, Chelsea

How to Start Bible Journaling

Taking time out of your busy schedule to spend quiet time with God can be difficult. I know how busy life can be, but simply finding time to stop and sit down with a Bible will pay off big time. I know I’m not the only one whose mind starts to wander while praying or reading a devotional. I’ve learned a new method that makes me get 10x more out of my daily quiet time, and I encourage you to try it, too!

First comes first, you need the right tooChelsea Crockett - Journalingls. You also need to know which style of note taking you want to use. For me, I like underlining words or verses that stick out to me. Others like to use highlighters to do this. Whatever you prefer! You also need a pen or pencil to write notes and comments on the side.

Second, you need to understand what Bible journaling is. You don’t have to mark something on every page or worry about how nice your notes look. Let it be messy, it should be what speaks to you. If you like to doodle, use markers to create something like the picture on the left. If you’re looking for a Bible simply for journaling, they sell Bibles with extra wide margins with space to write your notes in! How perfect is that?

You can also buy sticker Post-It bookmarks to remind you where you left off or where a certain story or verse stuck out to you. I encourage you to get started and spend some quiet time with God!

Love, Chels
