"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

OK God!

You know how bad I was falling apart Tuesday God?  I kept asking You and Bro. Tom for verses? Well I didn't do my normal Bible study Tuesday but was trying to look in the index for stuff on grief, death, whatever... nothing was helping.
Hmm.. maybe I should have done my study for Tuesday 'cause guess what!?! It gave me what I needed.... Ok this will be long but this is from Tuesday and Wednesday's Bible study from my Mom's Devotional Bible.

 "Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer
or withheld His love from me!" Psalm 66:20

James 1:2-5 (THIS ONE IS A GOOD ONE! but aren't they all?)
Trials and Temptations
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5
The God of All Comfort
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. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

and love this one!!
2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

I just copied these from Bible Gateway since it was quicker than typing them all.
Man these might have come in handy yesterday but with all I was going through at the time too I just might not have seen it or understand it. Today when I was reading it, the first one, I was laughing, saying, "Alright God, I got it!!" See I think those are the times when I usually ask Him to reach down and smack me to show me something, that He does! Then I have to laugh and say alright, alright, I get it!! Thank You!!!! Pin It

He has the answers.....and I am so thankful that we do not always have to know them but can rest in His love and trust His sovereign grace.

Very very true!! It is so funny how things just fall into place and if you don't hear that silent voice that you know is Him talking to you, that He shows you in other ways! I am constantly laughing and saying, "I get it! Thank you Jesus!!"
