In times of need

Many Christians seek the Holy Bible for comfort during trials and difficult moments. These are a few of my favorite bible verses in times when I need to be reminded of God's love. Finding encouragement in the Bible is a good way to reconnect ourselves with the teachings and mysteries of the Good Book.

For Strength and Guidance

"Yet, I am always with you; you hold me

by my right hand.You guide me with

your counsel, and afterward you will

take into glory. " - Psalms 73:23,24

"In all your ways acknowledge Him,

and he will make your paths

straight."- Proverbs 3:6

"Why are you downcast, O my

soul? Why so disturbed within

me? Put your hope in God,

for I will praise him,my Savior

and my God"- Psalms 42:11

" The lord is my rock, My fortress and my

deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom

I take refuge. He is my shield and the

horn of my salvation, my stronghold."

-♥ Lamentations 3:31-33

"The faith and love that spring from

the hope that is stored for you in

heaven and that you have already

heard about in the word of truth,

the gospel." -♥ Colossians 1:5

"...which is Christ in you,

the hope of glory."-♥ Colossians 1:27

"Be strong and take heart, all you who

have hope in the Lord"- ♥Psalm 31:24


"I will be a Father to you, and you

will be my sons and daughters,

says the Lord Almighty"

-♥ 2 Corinthians 6:18

"I am with you and will watch over

you wherever you go, and I will

bring you back to this land.

I will not leave you until I have

done what I have promised you."

-♥ Genesis 28:15

Trust in God

"But when the kindness and love

of God our Savior appeared, he

saved us, not because of

righteous things we have done,

but because of his mercy. He

saved us through the washing

of rebirth and renewal by the

Holy Spirit, whom he poured

out on us generously through

Jesus Christ our Savior."

-♥ Titus 3:4-6

For these are a handful of verses that brings so many the comfort of the scriptures. But from all the rest this one is my favorite;

" Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,

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 minds in Christ Jesus."

- Philippians 4:6,7

What about you?

Can you find comfort in the pages of your Bible when you need it?
