There is plenty of the Bible that I haven't read but I really love Proverbs 31 and Colossians 3. Both just seem to give clear instruction even if applying it to real life consistently isn't easy. I like that it is straightforward and there isn't really any way of wriggling out of the message and instruction.
Isaiah 61:1-3 God gives us beauty for ashes. So many times all I can give him is 'ashes' and He blesses and comforts me by turning my circumstances/situation into something beautiful e.g my DC out of a broken marriage.
