For every Christian, the Bible is the most valuable book which one can read. Not only that it bears some of the most beautiful messages, but also it will give you something to think about and ponder upon.
Dwelling on the thoughts in the Bible will definitely bring you closer to God and will change your life – for the better of course.
I am a devoted Christian and I truly believe that the words of wisdom and faith truly act as the God’s own hand which has helped me so many times in life that I couldn’t even count. Precisely because of it, I feel the need to share with you the way in which I approach to the reading of the Bible. Perhaps if you like it, you can do it for yourself, too.
If you really want to change your life by reading the Bible I suggest you do the following: read the Bible as much as you like and in no specific order. Once you come across a verse that speaks to you note it down and write your thoughts, perhaps you could use a diary or something similar. Then you can go back to these thoughts later on and edit them with new thoughts and observations.
Here are (in my humble opinion) some of the greatest verses in the Bible which always manage to cheer me up, as well as give me hope and something to think about and pray for. God Bless!

9. Matt 11:28: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
