    A couple of my favorites have been mentioned already - Romans 12:1-2, 8:38-39, I Peter 5:6-7...so here's a few more --

    Romans 8:28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose

    Hebrews 12:1-2 - Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

    Psalm 32:7 - You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.

    Romans 8:18 - I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us

    hmm........tuff one I don't know that I can pick one, but at the moment I love Romans 12:9-21

    Romans 12
    9~Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
    10~Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
    11~Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
    12~Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
    13~Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
    14~Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
    15~Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
    16~Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[1] Do not be conceited.
    17~Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody.
    18~If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
    19~Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay,"[2] says the Lord.
    20~On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."[3]
    21~Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

    Ok so that's more then one verse, but it's SO hard to pick

    ACTS 18:30 GOD COMMANDS ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT. TO REPENT DOES NOT MEAN TO KEEP DOING SOMETHING OVER AND OVER AND ASKING FORGIVENESS. IF YOU HAVE REPENTED YOU STOPPED DOING WHAT EVER IT WAS YOU WERE DOING. READ LUKE 3:7-17

    My favorite is Psalm 139 v7-12;
    Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
    If I go up to heaven, you are there;
    If I make my bed in hell, you are there.
    If I rise on thewings of dawn, If I settle on the far side of the sea,
    Even there Your hand will guide me
    Your right hand will hold me fast.
    If I say, surely the darkness wil hide me,
    and the light become night around me,
    even the darkness will not be dark to You;
    the night will shine like day,
    for darkness is as light to You.

    I often struggle with depression and need to know I'not alone.

    I can't give favorites because the bible was never meant to be separated into verses that was added much later, but I am not a stick in the mud either I will give one I like.

    Ecclesiastes 5:11 As goods increase so do those who consume them and what benifit are they to the owner except to feast his eyes on them

    <SUP>1</SUP> O LORD , you have searched me&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (Psalms 139)
    and you know me.
    <SUP>2</SUP> You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
    <SUP>3</SUP> You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
    <SUP>4</SUP> Before a word is on my tongue
    you know it completely, O LORD .

    <SUP>5</SUP> You hem me in-behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    <SUP>6</SUP> Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    <SUP>7</SUP> Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
    <SUP>8</SUP> If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, <SUP>[1]</SUP> you are there.
    <SUP>9</SUP> If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
    <SUP>10</SUP> even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.

    <SUP>11</SUP> If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,"
    <SUP>12</SUP> even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

    <SUP>13</SUP> For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother's womb.
    <SUP>14</SUP> I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
    <SUP>15</SUP> My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place.
    When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
    <SUP>16</SUP> your eyes saw my unformed body.
    All the days ordained for me
    were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.

    <SUP>17</SUP> How precious to <SUP>[2]</SUP> me are your thoughts, O God!
    How vast is the sum of them!
    <SUP>18</SUP> Were I to count them,
    they would outnumber the grains of sand.
    When I awake,
    I am still with you.

    <SUP>19</SUP> If only you would slay the wicked, O God!
    Away from me, you bloodthirsty men!
    <SUP>20</SUP> They speak of you with evil intent;
    your adversaries misuse your name.
    <SUP>21</SUP> Do I not hate those who hate you, O LORD ,
    and abhor those who rise up against you?
    <SUP>22</SUP> I have nothing but hatred for them;
    I count them my enemies.

    <SUP>23</SUP> Search me, O God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
    <SUP>24</SUP> See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.
