14 Uplifting Scriptures for a Joyous Day

Start your day off right

The first few moments of your day can easily set the tone for what’s to come. As women we have so much to deal with; some of it rewarding, and some of it stressful (to say the least). At times we need reminders to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world, Matthew 5:13-16. So at the beginning of your day, it can be tremendously helpful to read God’s word and speak truth and love over your life.

With that in mind, I have put together a list of 14 encouraging scriptures I find helpful when I start my day. However, these verses can easily be prayed or recited throughout your day to remind yourself of whose you are. You are a daughter of the almighty God. He loves you beyond measure, and nothing will ever change that. The Lord has placed you here for a unique purpose, be encouraged in Him.

14 Uplifting Scriptures for a Joyous Day
Be strong in the Lord, do not fear

For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)

But as for you, be strong and courageous, for your work will be rewarded.                  2 Chronicles 15:7 (NLT)

God is in the center of her. She will not be moved. God will help her when the morning comes. Psalm 46:5 (NLV)

Develop a spirit of love for others

 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 (NLT)

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)

You must be kind to each other. Think of the other person. Forgive other people just as God forgave you because of Christ’s death on the cross. Ephesians 4:32 (NLV)

God created you in His image

“You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way.” Song of Solomon 4:7 (NLT)

Do not let your beauty come from the outside. It should not be the way you comb your hair or the wearing of gold or the wearing of fine clothes. Your beauty should come from the inside. It should come from the heart. This is the kind that lasts. Your beauty should be a gentle and quiet spirit. In God’s sight this is of great worth and no amount of money can buy it. 1 Peter 3:3-4 (NLV)

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14 (NIV)

Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone Colossians 4:6 (NIV)

The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences. Proverbs 18:21 (NLT)

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

Wrapping it up

Every day we must arm ourselves for battle against the enemy, by calling on our Lord and Savior. It is my hope that these scriptures will encourage you to be your best self for the Kingdom. Beginning your day with the Lord and His word will undoubtedly bring you peace and joy.
