comfort and hope - even on the darkest days
"I'm praying for you." How many times have I said those words only to realize, I probably didn't pray at all or enough over the request? This week was full of prayer requests. So much sadness, heartache, and so many unanswered questions. When a friend texted me early in the week asking for prayers, I made a point of looking up verses, specific to the situation that I could pray over. Little did I know that just two days later, I would need those same verses in a different situation that hit close to home.
Bad things happen. We can watch the nightly news or read about current events and we know that bad things happen. It's just so hard to watch bad things happen to good people. What are we to do when the only thing we want to do is ask why? I found comfort in His word. Maybe these verses will encourage or give you hope. If not you then maybe someone you know that is going through a rough patch.
