19 Short Bible Verses for the Commander/Leader

As a Squadron Commander I began collecting Bible verses to help in both enlightening and challenging times and I continue to turn to these often.  No matter the season of life–reviewing these versus creates a sense of peace, understanding, and presence from the Lord.  Just thought I’d share… please let me know of others…

(Philippians 4:6-7) Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Seemed to help to add my name to this one…
(Matt 11:28-30) “Come to me, Bill when you are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you Bill and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
