Verses that Inspire [Me]

I thought that today I would share some of the Bible verses that have stood out to me recently during my [attempt at] daily Bible reading. I've actually been writing each of them down on an index card to add to my God wad, but so far I've failed to memorize even one.

(I'll send out another plea - anyone up for some Scripture memorization accountability??)

Some of these struck me because of the deeper thoughts they invoked.  Others were simply good reminders of things I should focus on on a daily basis but oftentimes let slip from my mind.

I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.
 - Psalm 3:5

In your anger, do not sin;
when you are on your beds,
search your hearts and be silent.
 - Psalm 4:4

Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you.
 - Psalm 55:22

My soul finds rest in God alone;
    my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
 - Psalm 62:1-2

Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.
 - Psalm 62:8

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.  Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.
 - 1 Samuel 16:7

Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
keep watch over the door of my lips.
 - Psalm 141:3

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
 - Psalm 34:18

Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
 - Psalm 34:14

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
 - Psalm 27:14

Those are just a few of my index cards.  If you have any Bible verses that have stood out to you lately, please do share. :)
