Comfort --Scripture Challange




Our word for the week is COMFORT and Ive really enjoyed spending the time in the Word of God this week studying this word and thinking about the way that it has effected my life my journaling on this page reads ,

Sadly enough sometimes we only turn to our Wonderful Savior when we are in search of comfort And what im starting to realize is that Gods there always to comfort us us during the good times and the bad and to give us the strength to also be there and comfort those in need !

And in searching for the verses for this word I found 3 that I really liked alot one really goes well with my journaling I think





2 Corinthians 1:3[ The Rescue ] All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too.




Matthew 5:11"Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don't like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.



Psalm 119:73With your very own hands you formed me; now breathe your wisdom over me so I can understand you. When they see me waiting, expecting your Word, those who fear you will take heart and be glad. I can see now, God, that your decisions are right; your testing has taught me what's true and right. Oh, love me—and right now!—hold me tight! just the way you promised. Now comfort me so I can live, really live; your revelation is the tune I dance to. Let the fast-talking tricksters be exposed as frauds; they tried to sell me a bill of goods, but I kept my mind fixed on your counsel. Let those who fear you turn to me for evidence of your wise guidance. And let me live whole and holy, soul and body, so I can always walk with my head held high.


And the Song that stands out to me right now is by Matthew West
