My Mom and I recently... I love this picture!!! She's one of my absolute best friends! :-)
Some scripture verses that have been really encouraging to me recently that I've been trying to dwell on are Psalm 25:4-10:
"Make me to know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day long. Remember Your mercy, O Lord, and Your steadfast love, for they have been from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to Your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of Your goodness, O Lord! Good and upright is the Lord; therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way. All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep His covenant and His testimonies."
The psalmist seems to have such a deep understanding of God's unfailing and steadfast love. The OT is full of example after example of God's steadfast love. When I begin to feel down, depressed, or lonely it helps me to think on verses about God's steadfastness. It reminds me that He will never leave me and that I can trust Him completely with my life.
