Pick me up Bible verses

Hello wonderful people,

Welcome back to this street.

Today I want to share with y’all some Bible verses that have been encouraging me since January.

Depending on the season I am going through, I find encouragement in each and every scripture.


“The Lines fallen to me in pleasant places;Yes,I have a good inheritance.’


`Weeping may endure for a night,But joy comes in the morning.’

+2 Peter 1:3

`As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.’

+Romans 8:32

`And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.’

+Daniel 11:32b

`but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.’

+Numbers 23:19

`God is not a man,that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?’


Ps: Writing this post has been therapeutic and re-energizing.

Do share a Bible verse that has gotten you through a season this year.

Words carry such pungent worldviews-Binyavanga Wainaina, One day I will Write About this Place

I love music and I’m constantly on the look out for new music. Bob Marley said, “One good thing about music is, when it hits you, there is no pain. ”
I believe that music is therapeutic.Music has power to change atmospheres. Music heals the soul.

In May, one of my friends got married. As she walked down the aisle, the song that was being sang caught my attention.
