The First Aid Kit for Weary Pilgrims

Often I tell people to collect Bible verses to quickly remind them of God’s goodness in a time of need. Because when you’re feeling distressed you don’t have much energy to dig deep.

God Is at Work Behind the Scenes

God Is at Work Behind the Scenes

God is at work behind the scenes. In the world and in your life. No matter what is going on. God is in control and God is at work for you, in you, through you.

[Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] (John 14:27, AMP) God has not forgotten you. Rest in God and…
