Years ago when my husband and I experienced a particularly difficult trial, a friend took time to write out a page of Bible verses and mail it to us. They didn’t add anything–they just allowed God’s Word to comfort us and minister into our hurt. I still remember. Of all the meaningful cards and thoughtful words others expressed, this one action especially impacted me.
With that in mind, I’ve composed a list of several Scriptures that minister to me time and time again. God has spoken to me through these ancient words in the past, and He continues to use them in my present. I pray at least one of these verses will touch your heart exactly how you need it today. God’s Word is living and active (Heb. 4:12)—more powerful than we can comprehend.
May you savor these words of truth and allow them to sink deep into your soul.
In Christ’s Love,
