I don't know if I'd call this a life verse, exactly, but it's been important to me since I found it during a Bible Study Fellowship lesson:
Micah 4:6-8. "In that day", declares the Lord, "I will gather the lame; I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. I will make the lame a remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The Lord will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever. As for you, O watchtower of the flock, O stronghold of the Daughter of Zion, the former dominion will be restored to you; kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem."
My cerebral palsy has always made me awkward (lame) in one way or another, and I've frequently felt on the outside of things. More an observer than a participant, but this verse appears to say that God values me.
