In these times, these verses from the Psalms bring me great comfort. I hope they will do the same for you.
Psalm 139:13-15 (ESV) For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Psalm 18:19 (NIV) He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.
Psalm 34:4-5 (NIV) I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
Psalm 46:10 (NIV) He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalm 57:1 (NIV) Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.
Psalm 119:49-50 (NIV) Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
Psalm 119:165-166 (NIV) Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. I wait for your salvation, Lord, and I follow your commands.
Psalm 131:1-2 (NIV) My heart is not proud, Lord my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Psalm 150:6 (ESV) Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord.
Until next time …
