What’s Highlighted?


On occasion, I share some beautiful artwork from Pinterest. These pictures contain verses of Scripture and they allow my mind to visualize God’s Word. Another way I visualize God’s Word is by highlighting verses in my Bible.


DSCN0060Today, I thought I would share some of favorites…I’d love to know what verses you enjoy reading in God’s Word, so get your thinking cap on. I will ask the question at the end.


I find that as I read through my Bible there are verses that speak volumes. So I pull out my highlighter and mark it. I don’t use a specific color for a specific topic. I just use whatever color I pull out. Consequently, there are random colors throughout my Bible. I sure hope someone doesn’t try to figure out a pattern after I’m gone…they might go mad in the process. Here are some of my highlighted passages.


“And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.” (Deuteronomy 10:12-13 – NIV)


“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid: do not be discouraged.” (Deuteronomy 31:8 – NIV)


“Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.” (1 Samuel 1:18 – NIV)


“I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.” (Job 19:25 – NIV)


“I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the Lord with me let us exalt his name together.” (Psalm 34:1-3 – NIV)


“But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.” (Psalm 71:14 – NIV)


“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17 – NIV)


“…We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.” (2 Corinthians 1:8-9 – NIV)


“Pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.” (Colossians 4:3-4 – NIV)


“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7 – NIV)


“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called up by his own glory and goodness.” (1 Peter 1:3 – NIV)


“To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forever! Amen.” (Jude 1:24-25 – NIV)


Okay, now it’s your turn. What verses of Scripture stand out to you? What passages do you have underlined or highlighted in your Bible? Why did these verses catch your attention?


God’s Word is living and active and very relevant for our lives today. Let’s allow our eyes to be open to His message, let’s allow our hearts to be transformed by God’s Word and let’s share His message with the world…starting with your own sphere of influence. “May the word of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” (Psalm 19:14 – NIV)


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
