SWEET IS THE WORD! MY GO-TO SCRIPTURES FOR COMFORT & COURAGE.

Sunday, May 1, 2016
Pic via: the front porch. Ryan pulled a camping chair out there one sunny day to study his law stuff, and I jumped in it one morning to the good word. The air was fresh and morning birds were chirping and all was well. 

Entry from Sunday, April 24
Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."


Matthew 6:33
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you."

Matthew 7:7
"Ask, and it shall be given you."

2 Nephi 4:19
"I know in whom I have trusted."

Mosiah 4:9
"Believe in God...believe that he has all wisdom and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all that the Lord can comprehend."

D&C 6:33, 34, 36
"Fear not to do good my sons, for whatsoever ye sow that shall ye also reap; therefore if ye sow good ye shall also reap good for your reward. 
"Therefore, fear not little flock, do good; let earth and hell combine against you, for if ye are built on my rock, they cannot prevail.
"Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not."

Seeking comfort and encouragement today. I'm feeling a little stressed about the changes coming our way. San Diego is around the corner, I've been working so hard at changing my blog to accommodate my goals for that space (just FYI - I'll share those details in a post here tomorrow!). Ryan is enshrouded with finals, which means life with him as we normally know it and always like it is on hold. These pressures are all associated with progress and positive change and I'm grateful for them. But standing between your present and your future can be such an uncomfortable, stressful state of limbo.

So I'm grateful for these scriptures. I'll lean on them this week.

//

Post script: I did lean on them and I did make it through this week! But if you're reading this, I want to hear what your go-to scriptures are for comfort, because can you ever get enough of the good word that calms your nerves and fills your heart with courage? What are your go-to scriptures when you need peace? Comment below or on FB if you're reading there or even email me, too. I'd love nothing more than to be bolstered by your faith and experiences with the sweet, good word!
