God's Word is powerful and effective! It gives us direction and guidance throughout our lives. It actually helps us to keep going. I've listed some of my favourite verses - I like to hold onto them and boldly declare what they say! I've found them very encouraging and full of wisdom. It's also good to work towards memorizing them.
I've used the New International Version (NIV) translation as I find that it's one of the Bible versions that's simple and easy for even a first time Bible reader to understand. I've put a link for you to compare translations - Bible versions
