For whatever was written …was written to teach us, so that by our steadfast and patient endurance and the encouragement drawn from the Scriptures, we might hold fast to and cherish hope. Romans 5:4.
It is good to have family and friends that can comfort us in hard times, but there can be no better place to find comfort and encouragement than in the Word of God. Can I encourage you to make a habit of regularly reading the Bible yourself? It is full of assuring words of God’s comfort and reminder that He never leaves, nor forsakes.
