The Bible is full of amazing verses for all different areas of our lives. These amazing verses can help us through difficult times, fearful times, but also happy times! One area where you might not have thought to use verses is when celebrating a birthday. We all have special people in our lives and on their special day sometimes we struggle to find the words to express our feelings. That is why I have come up with a list of the top five best birthday verses for the special women in your life and how they can be used as the perfect words on their birthdays.
Thessalonians 1:2-3: A birthday bible verse for your mom
One of the most special people in most of our lives is our mom. The Bible has a lot to say about motherhood. A verse that talks about the care of a mother is 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 stating ‘We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our LORD Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father.’
This is such a great descriptive verse of how much a mother cares for us. At Courage Candles, we loved this verse so much we decided to put it on our Mother's Care Candle. The Mother’s Care Candle is a great way to pair this beautiful verse with a gift and say Happy Birthday in a unique way.
Psalm 37:7: A birthday bible verse for your wife.
Another incredibly special woman is your wife. She takes care of your children, your home, and everything in between. One thing that the women in your life always forgets to do is to rest. Psalm 37:7 says, ‘Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.’ This verse is a great reminder because it encourages these beloved women to rest, not in themselves, but rest in the Lord. He will take care of all the things that are on their minds and in their hearts. It is a special blessing and reminder for them on their birthday to take time for themselves and to rest in the Lord.
Bible verse for the special women in your life, your daughter. Philippians 2:19-21
Daughters! Perhaps your daughter works at home raising little ones. Maybe she works outside the home as a working mother. Or maybe she isn’t a mother but she is always caring for others around her. Caregivers are all around us. No matter what your daughter does for work, she falls into the care-giving category in some way. A great verse for your caregiver is Philippians 2:19-21, ‘But I trust in the LORD Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. For I have no man like-minded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.’ Caregivers seek the things of others and not their own. This is a great verse for your daughter to let her know that you see her caring spirit.
1 John 1:7: A birthday bible verse for your sister
Sisters are friends for life. We start our lives normally walking with them in some form or another. Sometimes they are older and we get to hold their hand to steady ourselves and other times they are younger and we get to steady them as they learn to walk. This is a beautiful picture of love, friendship and sisterhood. This is also a great reminder of how we are to walk with the Lord. 1 John 1:7 says “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we are walking correctly before the Lord, we will be hand in hand with Christ and we also will be hand in hand with other believers.” If your sister is a believer, that is a double blessing. This verse can be found on the Courage to Walk Candle. It would make a beautiful present for a sister’s birthday.
Numbers 6:24-26: A birthday bible verse for your friend
Finally, there are special women in your life who perhaps do not fall into any of the previous categories. Sometimes we don’t know exactly what to wish for them on their birthday but because they are so special to us, we want them to know that God has them in His Hands. Jeremiah 29:11 says ‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.’ This verse gives a special blessing for a friend no matter where they are in life. Another great verse of blessing is Numbers 6:24-26: “The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” This verse is a type of prayer over their life and their year.
