In the midst of an ever changing world, the source of my peace is Jesus.
For He Himself is our peace.
In the midst of frightening circumstances, the source of my refuge and trust is Jesus.
What time I am afraid, I will trust in You.
In the midst of losing loved ones to death, the source of my hope is Jesus.
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
In the midst of experiencing aging and its limitations, the source of my strength is Jesus.
The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and He will make me walk on my high hills.
In the midst of Satan’s temptations, the source of my escape and salvation is Jesus.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
In the midst of confusion and doubt, the source of my faith is Jesus.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
In the midst of sadness, the source of my comfort is the Spirit of God.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
The source of my joy is God’s everlasting love revealed through His Spirit and declared through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ.
These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
