I was looking for some comforting scripture to send to my cousin, who is going through the biggest trial of her life. I found something for her, and as I sat there staring at the words on the page, I wondered if there was something for me, too. I can't explain where my head and heart is lately, but my mind has been so heavy. As I stared at the page, my eyes focused on this scripture:
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
I zoned in on “dismayed” and I realized that’s exactly what I am. Dismayed. It was very comforting to me to know that God understood exactly what I was feeling, and He let me know He’s always here for me. For you, too.
