24 Encouraging Scripture Verses; HE heals the broken-hearted


24 Encouraging Scripture Verses; HE heals the broken-hearted

The Scripture Verses from last week (1) and this week (2) are from Psalm 121.

There is a personal story connected with this song/Psalm. And it goes like this:

Once upon a time I was lucky to own a dog named Song. She was gorgeous in personality as well as looks and we were all head over heels with Song. She was a Mastiff/Dane cross, with a beautiful cream colour coat and at 65 kilos she was a force to be reckoned with. Not that she ever exercised her authority. The most she would ever do was get up on her feet and gently place herself between the aggressor and the other person. That is all she ever really needed to do.

Song made us all feel safe from predators and aggressive people. When we slept, I knew that she had our back. When we, as three girls, travelled unknown towns with Song, no one ever approached us. Her imposing looks, kept us safe from predators.  I did not realise how much I counted on her presence till she died at the ripe old (dog) age of 14. I was absolutely devastated. Now what? I missed my lovely friend as well as our protector.

As usual, when I’m distressed, I opened up the Bible for comfort. The Bible fell open at Psalm 121 and I read,

I will lift up my eyes

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.
Psalm 121

My Help Comes From The Lord

Instantly my mind was at peace and I realised that it was not my dog Song that had kept my family safe all these years. It was our Father in Heaven that looked over us. Sure, no doubt, he uses guardian angels, and Song may well have been one of those. But bottom line is, that it is God who takes care of our well being and keeps us safe. It is not man nor animal. Now we feel inspired to sing Psalm 121 whenever we go out in the car, knowing that protection comes from above.

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:2

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:2

We’re bound to be disappointed when we count on people to help us and keep us from harm. The Lord however, keeps all his promises and has never disappointed me.

The Healing Power of Prayer; 24 encouraging Scripture verses for people with major illness


The Healing Power of Prayer; 24 encouraging Scripture verses for people with major illness  

A friend of mine, let’s call her Isabella, was recently diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening condition. After weeks of anxiety, tests and an operation, Isabella will now undergo radiation treatment.

It is an awful thing to be diagnosed with a major illness. And often we are at a loss as on how to proceed. The doctors say one thing. Friends, family, and neighbours all want to have their say also and the whole process of testing and treating can be a confusing and challenging time.

Our Lives are in God’s Hands

As friends, we may not always know what to do and how to help. All I really want to do  is hold Isabella in a tight hug and tell her that it will be OK. I want to tell her that our lives are in God’s hands and that he has good plans for her.

I think about my friend often and as usual, when I’m distressed about something, I find comfort in God’s Word. Prayer is known to reduce stress and inflammation in the body.

There is Healing Power in God’s Holy Word

People who pray are found to heal faster and have more peace of mind than people who don’t pray. And the same goes for people who are prayed for, regardless if they know that they are prayed for or not. Mmmm, interesting, isn’t it?

Does the strength of the healing power depend on the faith of the person praying? Sometimes, yes. But not always. 

There is healing power in God’s Holy Word which is as true today as it was thousands of years ago. We can claim the promises from God’s Holy Word as our own. It is as easy as that.

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR PEOPLE WITH MAJOR ILLNESS

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR PEOPLE WITH MAJOR ILLNESS

Isabella told me the other day that 25 radiation treatments have been scheduled ‘as a precaution.’ I found 25 Scripture verses to encourage my friend and others on a similar journey. One for each day of treatment.
The first Scripture Verse is below and the others will follow to help and encourage anyone needing comfort and encouragement during medical treatment of any kind.

The Lord Will Keep You

You can right-click your mouse on the Scripture Verses to ‘save image as’ to your computer and use them as a screensaver.

The Lord will keep you from all harm.. Psalm 121:7

The Lord will keep you from all harm.. Psalm 121:7

May the Lord hold you close, Isabella. And may he comfort you and others who are on a similar journey, and carry you through this period of therapy.

Much love to you my dear friend. I’m looking forward to our next gettogether.
