Meat of It

I am often asked, what scriptures sustained me while going through tough times. Listed below are some of the scriptures that I read in the midst and continue to read. As I moved through the storm certain scriptures I read several times, each time getting new revelation. That’s the beauty of the word of God, his word became life to me. It was as if the words jumped off the page and into my heart. In this season I learned every person can read the word of God and discern for themselves. I always knew that to be true, it just really sunk in, in this season. I am using various translations of scriptures and are denoted accordingly.

Love

Is not Israel still my son, my darling child? says the Lord. I often have to punish him, but I still love him. That’s why I long for him and surely will have mercy on him. Jeremiah 31:20

his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:22 & 23

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8

This way, with all of God’s people you will be able to understand how wide, long, high, and deep his love is. You will know Christ’s love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. I am praying this so that you may be completely filled with God. Ephesians 3:18-19

Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Hebrews 11:1

Women

A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands. Proverbs 14:1 nlt

God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful. 1 Thess. 5:24
