20 Bible Verses for When You Need God’s Light

Although I prefer the KJV, this post is excellent for bringing one’s spirit back to peace when life is throwing lemons. I’d like to add one more: Romans 8:28–And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. I love knowing that no matter what happens in my life: tragedy, illness, death, or a colossal moral mistake, God is able to use it for my good and His glory, if I just give the situation to Him and not allow it to make me bitter, angry, or doubtful.

Here is another fine set of scripture verses by one of my favorite bloggers, Heather C. King

Psalm 27:1 ESV

The Lord is the stronghold of my life;

Psalm 119:105 ESV

and a light to my path.

Psalm 119:130 ESV

it imparts understanding to the simple.

Ecclesiastes 2:13 ESV

  1. Hi Kay

    Thanks for the reblog. I enjoyed the original very much. I am a KJV kind of guy myself, to tell the truth. Most anything I write uses it. But, they were a great collection of verses.

    Hope you are having a great day!


    1. Thanks. Yes, having a great day. Have listened to some of the podcasts from The Self-Publishing Success Summit hosted by Chandler Bolt. Have already learned some tips that may work for me, like scheduling my blog post–I write the blog ahead of time, then schedule it to post when I want it to (dropping back to 2x weekly). This allows me time to whittle down my email (went through over 200 today!) and do some other things I enjoy doing. May sign up for free novel writing course next month–lasts just for the month.
