Birthday Verses


For the last eight years on my birthday, I’ve looked through the Bible to find my age in verses that are numbered my age. For instance, this year I found 24 verses that are each verse 24 in their respective chapters. I’ve enjoyed this tradition quite a lot. I love God’s Word and this is a special way to connect His Word to my birthday.

I thought I would share all the verses from the last eight years in one place. So as a fair warning, this post will be fairly long. I hope you’re encouraged and drawn closer to God while reading these verses. And maybe on your next birthday, you might want to do the same. 🙂
