In three short Instagram videos this past week, actress and outspoken Christian Candace Cameron Bure shared Scripture passages to show how she perseveres through difficult circumstances in life. The videos are part of a series Bure is doing to help her followers focus on God.
“I wanted to give you some fightin’ words, some spiritual encouragement straight from the Word of God,” said Bure in her first video posted last week. “A lot of people ask me, especially when times are tough, whether we are struggling mentally or with relationships or at work or just life, where do I go to in the Scriptures? And so I’m going to give you a few of my favorite verses.”

Candace Cameron Bure’s ‘Go-To’ Bible Verses
Candace Cameron Bure is an actress known for starring in “Full House” and “Fuller House,” as well as in a variety of Hallmark movies. In the caption of her first video, she said that when she is feeling discouraged, “I camp my mind on what Scripture says, meditate over it and redirect my thoughts to God’s Word.”
Bure’s purpose with the videos is not to address or comment on the significance of any particular event happening in the world, but to share Bible passages that help her personally.
In her first video, Bure read Philippians 4:6-9, which says:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, 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. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Bure said that focusing her mind on the truths the Philippians passage outlines is how she stays “positive, knowing God’s hand is in control of everything. I trust that and I focus my mind on what is good and right.”
In the second video in her series, posted several days later, Bure read Ephesians 6:12-18.
