9 Verses of Comfort

Comfort can be as elusive as love. When solace is longed for, resilience flounders.

"I've learned that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand". ~ Andy Rooney

Jesus still offers both His hand and His heart:

  1. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
  2. Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22)
  3. Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior who daily bears our burdens. (Psalm 68:19)
  4. Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
  5. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 29:13-14)
  6. ‘Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.’ (Matthew 11:28-30)
  7. He who comes to Me I will never drive away. (John 6:37)
  8. On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, ‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink’. (John 7:37)
  9. Cast all your anxiety upon Him because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)

Jesus carried all your sins so He can also carry all your pain.

Draw close to Him for He loves to draw close to you.
