This is a list of bible verses that I've been adding to and will continue to add to. When I'm feeling some kind of way I usually try to look up bible verses that apply to how I'm feeling. Whether it's on cloud 9 or down in the dumps. There is always a reason or meaning behind how we feel and why we feel that way. If you have one that you love and don't see it on the list. Feel free to email me using the form in the CONTACT tab so I can add it! Tell me about what it means to you and when you like or need to say it. They're all from the NIV by the way.
