Words of Promise, Comfort and Encouragement
Yesterday, in my post Weekend Gratitude: In Every Situation on one of my other blogs, I mentioned that I had compiled a box of Scripture encouragement cards as a gift for my cousin Jean. These are some of the passages I included. I can think of many others that I would like to have copied out for her but I have an injured writing hand just now. It's even been a little hard just to copy and paste today from www.BibleGateway.com. I'll try to make a list of them later. :-) These verses are all NIV, most of them from the 1984 edition that I prefer.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:13, 17-18
Grace and peace to your and your family today,
