Encouragement

eph 3:20

I was having a very difficult day yesterday. A few people had said some very hurtful things to me. They hurt all the way down to the deepest depths of me. I usually have a fairly thick skin… but these words pierced right down into the deep vulnerable parts of me. I was not angry or bitter. I was hurt and in pain. For me the pain was all it was. It was not about the people who had spoken the words, it was truly not about them. But even though I was not angry the hurt was still there. The tears still flowed.

I was so sad that I knew I had to turn to the pure available encouragement from the Word of God. NOTHING heals my wounds like those words. Kind words of support, hugs, a shoulder to cry on… those are all very much needed… but it does not compare to the precious words God has given us. So I took to Facebook… that crazy wonderful, horrible thing. Sometimes Facebook can be a black hole of negativity and selfishness, but we can also uplift each other in an incredible way through it. I posted this verse:

Isaiah

I said that I was having a hard day and that God’s words were so helpful. I also asked that my friends comment with a verse that meant a lot to them. WOW! I was so surprised and overjoyed with the outpouring of love I received! Here are the verses and photos I received: 

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find REST FOR YOUR SOULS!!

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

John 18:11 But Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword back into its sheath. Shall I not drink from the cup of suffering the Father has given me?”

Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.” 5

 John 16:33 I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. 

Psalm 61:1-3 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. 2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.

4Isaiah 26:3-4 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock. 

Romans 8:16-18 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.


2Isaiah 41:10 
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” 

 Isaiah 40:31  but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.1

Hebrews 13:5 “Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”

Col. 1:29 “I labor for this, striving with HIS STRENGTH that works powerfully in me” 

Rom. 8:1 “Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus” 3

2 Cor 12:9 “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”. 

Jeremiah 17:7-8 But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes: its leave are always green. It has no worries in the year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.

Psalm 42:5-8 Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me a prayer to the God of my life.

I have some pretty awesome friends and an even more AWESOME and AMAZING God! Don’t you think?
