Sometimes the encouragement we need has to come straight from God’s word for it to really speak to our hearts. While adding our own words can be helpful and encouraging, there are times when reading another’s thoughts just adds to the noise in our head.
I believe this happens because what we really need is for our Creator’s voice to speak directly into our hearts. We need Him. He is the only one who can fill that God-shaped hole in our heart.
His word is all powerful, all healing and wholly dependable.
So, this is the beginning of a long series of posts focused directly on what God says when we feel or need a certain thing.
Just His word.
Just for you.
Read them. Pray them. Write them. Add a few of your favorites. I trust however you use them, He will provide what you need.
