Hey everyone! As I’ve been walking along this summer, people have encouraged me so much I thought I would extend that to you also. Here are some cool verses that people gave me and I’ve discovered:
“He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks lead me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.” (Psalm 23:2 TPT)
“Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have! You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way. Your authority is my strength and my peace. The comfort of your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.” (Psalm 23:4 TPT)
“You lead me with your secret wisdom. And following you brings me into your brightness and glory!” (Psalm 63:24 TPT)
“Some of us once wandered in the wilderness like desert nomads, with no true direction or dwelling place. Starving, thirsting, staggering, we became desperate and filled with despair.
“Then we cried out, ‘Lord, help us! Rescue us!’ And he did! He led us right into a place of safety and abundance, a suitable city to dwell in.
“So lift your hands and thank God for his marvelous kindness and for all his miracles of mercy for those he loves. How he satisfies the souls of thirsty ones and fills the hungry with all that is good!” (Psalm 107:4-9 TPT)
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (James 1:2-4 NIV)
This last one really hit me…probably because I was actually going through hard times and I forgot about it. It is a popular set of verses and it seems like it’s quoted often, but it wasn’t to me. When my friend’s mom said it to me, I was like, “Woah! This so applies!” Anyway, that was a side note 🙂
These are just a small amount of the encouragement from my sisters, coworkers, friends, and my mom. Thank you all for your encouragement that literally helped me make it through this summer at camp. I have one week left!
