Monday Morning Motivation....Scriptures of Hope
Those of you that know me know that I am writing a book. This book is about the pain and shock of being abandoned, the most painful event in my life, and my journey back to joy. I was looking over the scriptures in my book, scriptures of hope that helped me survive the early days of my trauma. I feel these verses could be a comfort at anytime in our lives....
2 Corinthians 12:9a 2 Corinthians 4:16
Deuteronomy 31:8 Deuteronomy 31:6
Jeremiah 17:7-8 Jeremiah 29:11
1 Kings 19:12
Matthew 5:4 Matthew 11:28-29
1 Peter 5:7
Psalm 16:8 Psalm 23 Psalm 25:5 Psalm 28:7a Psalm 32:8 Psalm 34:4 Psalm 34:18 Psalm 40:1-2
Psalm 46:1 Psalm 46:10 Psalm 55:22 Psalm 56:3 Psalm 56:8 Psalm 57:1 Psalm 73:26 Psalm 86:7
Psalm 91:4 Psalm 119:105 Psalm 121:1-2 Psalm 121:5 Psalm 138:3
2 Samuel 22:29
As you can see most of my comfort comes from the Psalms. I thought I would share just a few to get us started on our week.
“Don’t be afraid for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged
for I am you God. I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand”
“When I called to you for help, you answered me and gave me strength”
“The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me”
“Your word is a lamp that guides my steps,
a light that shows the path I should take”
Have a great week everyone.
