My God is greater than the feelings of sadness that are overwhelming me tonight. My God is stronger than the things that stand against us and those we love. Missing a wayward friend. Missing loved ones that are no longer with us. Feeling the sting of death and sin. Angry at the enemy. Received some difficult news today that increased the sorrow and frustration that was already felt.
Praying for comfort and peace. Looking to the only one that can supply them.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you;he will never let the righteous fall.
Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit
The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed... So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
