With all that is going around in our world right now, I cannot help but think, “What do we do now?” We have heavy hearts for many different reasons…family members and friends who have suffered and died from Covid-19 and other diseases; our country is torn apart through division and distrust, and people are suffering all over the world for various reasons. It does not make sense to us. But we know that the Lord is still in control! We can trust Him!
Sometimes words escape me. There are many scriptures that we can hang on to when facing difficult times. Here are some scriptures you may find comforting, encouraging, and hopeful. I pray that you may find comfort in these scriptures. You may want to comment below by adding a verse where you find God’s comfort during these times.
