Life.

Keeping in tune with yesterday’s post, today I am including bible verses focused on the sanctity of your life. I’ve found within the last year that looking to the Bible for guidance in times of need has really helped. *Shoutout to Catholic education for making me [eventually] realize this.*

1 Peter 3:10-11 For, Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech. They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.

1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

Ecclesiastes 7:10 Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.

Ephesians 5:15-16 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Proverbs 13:3 Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.

Proverbs 21:21 Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor.

Keep on keepin’ on, my friends. xoxo.

L O V E.

There has been so much love in the air lately, that it’s hard not to get caught up in the madness! Between Valentine’s Day, and of course, scrolling through your social media feed and seeing a new engagement/wedding/pregnancy announcement post every single day will get you in the mood to radiate nothing but these positive, loving vibes.

I did this before back in January regarding strength, so it only seemed fitting do do it again with love. Here’s some of my favorite verses describing none other than this wonderful feeling!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. but there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”

1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

1 John 3:16-18 “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If any one has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

1 John 4:18-19 “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.”

1 Peter 4:8 “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.”

Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”

Mark 12:31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as your self. There is no commandment greater than these.'”

Proverbs 3:3-4 “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”

Romans 12:9-10 “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”

Romans 13:10 “Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”

For anyone out there who needs it at this time:
