16 Verses When You Need to Feel God Near
When I was thinking about what to write for my next post, my mind was drawn to this little book of Bible verses I’d put together for my husband a while back. Categorized by different things he may encounter along his path through this broken world, it really has become a handy “go-to” when he needs something to reach his heart fast.
What I’ve put together below are verses that have helped both my husband and me when we have felt low, alone, and pummeled by life’s unyielding fist…
The Soverign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?”
an ever-present help in trouble.
in the morning, I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.
seek his face always.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
