Sharing these with you today…
A reminder just when you need it: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble.” Psalm 46:1
My family has always said this was my sister’s verse. Jesus was commissioning the disciples and as he was finishing, he took a moment to speak specifically to her 😉 (but, of course, his words are comforting to all): “And, lo, I am with you always, even until the end of the age.” Matt. 28:20
“…And if I perish, I perish.” Esther 4:16b. These words out of Esther’s lips are an amazing example of true bravery
“There is no greater love than this – that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends.” John 15:13. I want to be that kind of friend.
“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Cor. 13:7. Always.
When I need it, “He restores my soul…” Pslam 23:3a
“Come to me all you who are burdened and weary and I will give you rest.” Matt. 11:28. Words of comfort from Jesus.
“She will give birth to a son and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.'” Matt. 1:23. God with us (sensing a theme?)
Yes, it’s the most well-known verse on the planet. It also has a powerful beginning: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world…” John 3:16. Not just loved, but so loved. More than we can ever know.
