Throughout history, Christ-followers have often found themselves drawn to a specific verse, and that verse becomes a rallying cry that guides and bring focus to a season of life. These verses can be hung onto for years or even decades. In a sense, it becomes “their” verse. Maybe it’s a truth, or a challenge, straight from God’s Word, that is especially meaningful. The tradition continues today, and you’re invited to participate. 

Give yourself time to take these verses in. As you read our suggestions, your Bible or talk with others about their verses … pray and ask God what words He has for you. 

As you find “your verse” – share it! Write it on a post-it note, and add it to the wall in the lobby.
