  1. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening, reading and meditating over God’s word. These are beautiful Melanie. I particularly love Jeremiah 33:3…a verse which has spoken to my heart many times. I will be sharing this and please link up to our Tuesday Talk this week. There are so many who are in need of this. BTW…I went to church again this morning.

    1. Hey Michelle,

      Thanks for the encouragement! I love Jer. 33:3 as well!

      And, I am grateful you are sharing this link this week on Tuesday Talk. Thank you! I’m honored to be linked! Also, I’m enjoying meeting so many other bloggers each week when I link up.

      And, BTW, you go girl about the church thing! I wasn’t going to ask because I didn’t want to bug you. But, I do believe blessings follow obedience. Can’t wait to see how God blesses you for simply obeying Him!

  2. God is good to let me see this just when it is needed. I was not able to read it yesterday…but today, after reading a distressing email a few minutes ago, I get to this one. All I can say is, “Thank You Father, for Your perfect timing!” and also a “thank you” to you!

  3. I really loved several of the scriptures, especially Phil. 4;19. Thank you for so many encouraging words, just when they are needed at the right time. I just want say Thank you for all you pour in to your blog. You truly are a blessing to so many people that need encouragement , hope & love.

  4. Wow! Amazing. I too have been having a difficult week with struggles. These scriptures give me a renewed sense of hope and joy as I continue to trust in Him for everything I need. Then I am reminded by Him that He is working everything out for my good. Thank you. Blessings

  6. What encouraging verses! God’s word goes straight to the heart and never ceases to give me hope and peace. “The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me,” love that verse.

  7. I love that version of Psalm 34:10! I hadn’t read it before! Thank you, Melanie, for your heart of encouragement and message of hope in the midst of every difficult time!
