Had a rough week? The walk with me through one of the local parks. We’ll take our time, walk slowly, and enjoy the view while meditating on a verse that comforts us.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
2 Corinthians 4:8-9
fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.[a]
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
