Best Self Bible Verses

Finding Inner Strength Through God's Word: A Bible-Based Guide to Cultivating Confidence and Boldness for Women

This page is dedicated to understanding God's purpose for your life, finding confidence in that purpose, and gaining boldness by believing and trusting in God. I have amassed a collection of short inspirational quotes, Scripture verses, and wise sayings on this topic and I share some of them below. I literally have binders and notebooks full of these little wise sayings! Whenever I hear something or a thought comes to me that I want to mull over later, I jot it down on a scrap paper and toss it in my binder! Someday, I will get to typing them all down, but for now, I give you a sample ☺


My optimistic, hopeful self prays that you will be forever changed when reading these quotes and verses! So, may God's light be shed abroad in your heart while you read, think, pray, and meditate on any of the wise words that may stick out to you! Oh, how we need the light of God's holy word to shine on us during hard times, don't we? "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Sometimes our heart aches so badly and we feel lost, then, we read a Bible verse or listen to a testimony that renews our hope, and puts everything into perspective --That's the power of God's spirit blessing us and directing our ways!

Revealing God's Purpose and Grace - Let My Sun & Shade Ministries Illuminate Your Journey

It's so easy to lose hope in what you feel God has called you to do, but you must stand firm in your faith. God's word says to cast our burdens, anxieties, grievances, offenses, cares, and fears off on Him and He will be your strength when you are weak.  If you feel called to a certain ministry, and it just isn't happening the way you thought it would, then use this as an opportunity to exercise your faith in God. Write those issues down on a piece of paper, offer the paper up to the Lord, then crumple it up and throw it in the trash. When you cast the paper onto the Lord, resolve within yourself to trust Him with those things that were written on the paper. Believe He will meet with you according to His will and then, be at peace.

Find Freedom in Believing: Let My Sun & Shade Ministries Lead You to a Brighter Path

As you learn to trust the Lord with your whole heart, and lean not on your own understanding of what you think you are called to do, but acknowledge God's ways are higher than your ways, and His thoughts are higher than your thoughts, then, the Lord will give you wisdom and understanding, and direct all of your ways. Do you want to walk in wisdom? Do you want understanding on how to live? Without this blessing from God, you can make disastrous decisions and cause much harm in your life and in the lives of others.

Open your heart to the Lord today, and ask Him to help you. Find freedom in your spirit as You relinquish long-standing issues, thoughts, and imaginations about yourself, and let Him lead you in the right way. Oftentimes what He has purposed for our life is much different than what we have imagined for ourselves.

Fear may be the one thing that is stopping you from functioning in the gifts God has given you, and if this is the case, you need to pray and ask for a release in your spirit.

We are filled with the Holy Spirit that we might have boldness to preach the gospel and to use the talents God has given to us. Speak these things and declare victory, "I am not ashamed to preach the Gospel of Christ," and "I am not afraid to use my talents to glorify God." Receive boldness, power, and a sound mind through the filling of God's spirit today. What good is your talent going to be if you aren't using it? God can give you boldness through the power of his Holy Spirit working in you.

Be Filled With Courage: Embrace Life's Ups and Downs With My Sun & Shade Ministries

Find a good Bible translation you can easily read, and begin turning the pages. Start reading anywhere you would like. Seek out a Bible reading plan, but don't waste too much time investigating a plan online, because that could be a distraction tactic of the enemy to steal away your time. When you begin reading, remember this tip, if there is something you don't understand, try reading that same verse in a different translation. Sometimes that helps me get a better picture of what the verse is about. Make a commitment in your heart to read a chapter or two every day.

Illuminate Your Journey: Discover the Power in the Word of God with My Sun & Shade Ministries.

So many people profess to be called Christians, but don't follow anything that is written in the Bible. Yes, these people are hypocrites and I pray the Lord apprehends them sooner than later. But, you can pray the Lord enlightens your understanding of how to conduct your life as a Christian woman, so to bring glory and honor to His name. His spirit will begin to direct you on matters of the heart that affect your countenance, your words and your actions. Living a life of a Christian brings such assurance when we walk in God's ways. When we know He is pleased with us, nothing can come against us, for we know the Lord is on our side.
