verses that play on repeat

*verses that've been on repeat for me lately*


Jared and I have recently discussed about how sometimes it seems as if God repeatedly puts certain scriptures before our very eyes, just when we need them the most. And this got me to thinking about what verses God has been laying down right in front of my very eyes lately. The verses He wants me to hear and see and take heed to.

The verses that have been "speaking" and popping up repeatedly for me, as if on instant replay, are pictured above ^^.

Now, granted, I don't always see the words that God has laid (sometimes clearly apparent) in front of me when they first appear. Nope. I surely don't and I'm pretty sure it's because I am truly a stubborn one. Too stubborn for my own good at times. Admittedly, I usually have to come across a verse through multiple happenstances and "mediums" (i.e.- sermons, reading through my Bible, devotional books, tweets, fb comments/messages, pinterest boards, convos with friends and family and etc.) before I really start to pay attention to them, but then there are also those times when I rarely think twice about seeing a verse, until after the fact, when I finally find myself going through an extremely rough patch in my life. It's then that I know those words, given to me only a few days earlier, in a various array of seen and heard mediums, that I know that they were meant to prepare me to stand strongto learn to carry my cross and to live on.

God obviously knows my needs. Which is why those repetitious verses are not just repetitive to me anymore. Those verses are the planned and the purposed by God for us. Those verses are directions, a living map, a living comfort of hope and joy and peace to come.

Those verses are there to repeat and replay over and over again until they speak and set us free. So we should stay opened to hearing and seeing those mapped life-filled words, those Rhema-filled words. Because they were a beautifully written love letter, from Father to Child, with a message full of grace and redemption and wisdom and love, just for you and me to discover once we've learned to open up our eyes and see.

Are you listening? Are you keeping your eyes wide open? Do you think God places particular verses in your line of sight or hearing repeatedly? If so, what verse{s} has God spoken over you lately?

  1. Great post! I do believe God speaks His words into us directly for certain circumstances and so on. And I have seen this happen to me over and over and over in my own life. It's amazing, because His Word is ALIVE and it's so powerful!

    I think a verse I've thought of and been reminded of a lot lately would probably be Phil. 4:13. I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. I know this is a well known verse. But seriously, I need the reminder right now!!! :)

    1. Yes, I have seen God speak words over me throughout the years, but it's never really hit home so strongly with me before as it has right now this very week. Also, I am loving the book of Philippians right now too! Thank you for sharing that verse will me, Rachel! I hope you are doing well! =)

  2. I definitely believe that God places reminds us of certain verses! The two verses I've been thinking a lot of lately are James 4:13-14 and 1 Timothy 4:12. There are some others, but it would take a while to list them :)

    1. I love that you have too many verses to list here, Emily! ;)

  3. I would love to get all of these in prints :)

  4. You probably could on Etsy, Ameera! I hope you are having an excellent time teaching!! ;-)

  5. I always love your posts Sarah and this one is awesome. ;) When you mentioned certain verses sticking out I instantly thought of one.

    Lately Isaiah has been helping me through a rough past few months and the verse that has stuck out to me most is Isaiah 42:3:

    "A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment into truth"

    Perhaps it is just my interpretation, but I saw it as God promising to bruise and test us, but he will never fully break us. It was very encouraging to me at the time. I still see that verse as a reminder of His unfailing love and everlasting promises. Love all the other verses you listed. Philippians and Isaiah are my favorite books of the Bible. They are so full of promises and truths that we should take to heart.

    1. Aw, well, thanks, RJ! I'm so glad you feel at home here, with me and my writings. *blushes*

      Ah, I see...exactly what you do in that verse. I don't recall having heard that particular verse before, but that is so encouraging. Once we feel as though the world (or even God) has fully bruised and broken us down we can rest assured that He will never truly break us, but instead He will refine us and remake us, stronger and more well tempered than ever before. Thank you for sharing this verse with me!
