100th Post ~ 100 Loved Verses

To commemorate my 100th blog post, I’d like to share with you 100 of my favorite Bible verses (this will be a very long post). In doing so, I honor Him, who has blessed me by giving me the opportunity to have this blog and share my thoughts. God’s Word is full of hope, comfort, wisdom, instruction, and love. All of these verses have done that and more for me. They are in Biblical order. Some may include more than one verse, while others may be a partial verse. Also, I have a tendency to use different versions of the Bible – the verse may be taken from the NIV, Amplified, NLT or NKJV. I hope you enjoy!
