I need your help BLOG friends!!! Please send scripture you cling to and pass on to others in the most difficult of times. My friend, is facing a mountain! I will post later what God has laid on my heart for this family. Here is what I have so far....

Jeremiah 29:11

Romans 8:28

Psalms 37:5-6

Proverbs 3:5-6

Joshua 1:9

Isaiah 26:12

Can't wait to hear what God has laid on your heart for "Mam."

Hebrews 13:5b
Before translation this read, "I will not, I will not, I will not ever leave you or forsake you." The only time a triple negative was used.

1 Peter 5:8-11 "Be on your guard and stay awake. Your enemy, the devil, is like a roaring lion, sneaking around to find someone to attack. But YOU must RESIST the devil and stay strong in your faith. You know that all over the world the Lord's followers are suffering just as you are. But God shows undeserved kindness to everyone. That's why He appointed Christ Jesus to CHOOSE YOU to share in His Eternal Glory. You will suffer for a WHILE, but GOD WILL MAKE YOU COMPLETE, STEADY, STRONG, AND FIRM. GOD WILL BE IN CONTROL FOREVER!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!!"
This got us through the foster care system for the 3 years it took to adopt our Joshua, Sarah, & Elizabeth. We felt so attacked and defeated, but this verse still hangs in our closet as a reminder of who really is in control!

This one is one of my favs.

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble.
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. (Psalm 9:9-10)

Hey, Melanie. Thanks for FB message and asking me personally. That meant so much! Here are just a few "cling to" verses from my pesonal walk with the Lord and I enjoyed gathering them for you:

Psalm 91:1-2
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."

Matthew 8:23-27
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying "Lord, Save us! We're going to drown." He replied, "You of little faith. Why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all - how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Romans 8:38 For I am convinced that neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

Hey Girl! I'm glad you invited me over to your post - I have been wanting to pop in on all of my bloggy friends - and with my daughter sleeping in this morning - I got the chance! Perfect.

Anyway - the scripture that comes to mind is Ephesians 6:13-18. These verses give me strength and courage and peace.

I have already said a prayer for your friend.

Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend!

My "go to" is awlays the serenity prayer. It has helped me get through things that I thought would break me.
