Romans 15:4 For whatoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
I love this scripture! I reminds me of how much God's Word has edified me and brought me much comfort. He speaks to me through His Word. He has helped me cope with my health problems and renewed my strength in troubled depressing times. As I spent more and more intimate time with my Lord in prayer and studying His Word; my loneliness began to melt away. Happiness and the joy of the Lord filled me up. Not only did I learn to deal with my situation, I also gain much patience. The Lord put me back on my path. Most of all He gave me great comfort. I feel showered with God's love everyday. If you are out there and you are troubled by you weight, health, family problems, loneliness, depression, or something else just simply turn it over to the Lord! Turn to His Word! Pray! Our hope is in Christ Jesus!
