    In some recent personal turmoil, I have been so blessed by scriptures that I feel the Lord has shown me. Do you have any specific ones that seem to bring healing to your heart?

    Recently, (actually last night) Joshua 1 (the entire chapter) brought me a great deal of comfort and assurance.

    Psalms 37:3-5 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
    4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
    5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

    Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

    Jeremiah 29:11

    "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

    Luke 18:9-14

    9And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: 10“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11“The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12‘I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.’ 13“But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, the sinner!’ 14“I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

    Tater, great topic, we all need to anchor our souls to God's word,especially in times of turmoil. Here is a good one:

    John 14:25-27 "All this I have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

    Another that goes a long with it:

    John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."

    When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. Psalm 34:17-19

    If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. Psalm 119:92
    I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your Word. Psa 119:16
    It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn your statutes. Psalm 119:71

    One thing have I desired of the LORD, that I shall seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
    Psalm 27:4-5

    You have shared some really nice passages. One I really like is Psalm 31:19-20 "How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you. In the shelter of your presence you hide them from the intrigues of men; in your dwelling palce you keep them safe from accusing tongues."

    I like that "shelter of your presence" idea

    I have found this passage to be of great comfort in times when I have been afraid.

    1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

    [​IMG]

    God's love is perfect. Why should I fear when God loves me. Nothing will happen to me that God doesn't give His approval for and if God approves it then, I not only don't fear it, but I want it.

    Who wouldn't want to be the person receiving that hug?
