“I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.”(Psalms 37:25 ESV)
Hebrews 6:18b-19 "Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sanctuary."Romans 4:17 "...in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives LIFE to the dead and calls into being that which does no exist."Romans 4:20-21 "yet with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief, but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God promised, He was also able to perform."Romans 8:11 and 15 "But if the Spirit off Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you...For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry 'Abba! Father!"Dueteronomy 23:5 "Never the less, the Lord your God was not willing to listen to Balaam, but the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you because the Lord your God loves you."These may not be your typical "pick-me-up" Bible Verses-- but I have found comfort and hope in the FACT that God keeps his promises, His promises are GOOD, He turns curses into blessings, and I am his child and have access to His inner santurary-- not the mention that His Spirit LIVES IN ME. I am never out of the reach of his power, love, and comfort. I am praying for you!Jennifer Scruggs
Found a couple more!Ps. 93:3 "The floods have lifted up their voices." No storm is so great, no wave is so high, no sea is so deep, no wind is so strong, that Jesus cannot either calm it or carry us through it."Difficult circumstances, though unwanted and often unjust, sometimes will shatter our superficial life and unearth a person deeper that skin. As painful as the process may be, it also shatter our fragility and frees us to walk with dignity and might to our destinies". --Beth MooreAs I was typing these quotes and scriptures, I was thinking of the DiCarlo family and how empty they might sound in the midst of their pain and loss. If that is who you are wanting to encourage, I would go to the psalms-- to what David wrote after he experienced loss and pain. Job is another place-- even Ecclesiasties (sp???). I am praying for them everyday-- that they would believe that God is still Good and that His Love would begin to comfort and carry them. Anyway-- I'll keep praying for Nicole, and for whomever you are seeking to encourage.
One that has helped me through some difficult times....."All sunshine and no rain makes a desert." *Hugs for whatever you're going through* :)
