Bible verses that give us comfort and encouragement

31 July, 2018

You may be going through a difficult situation. It is possible that pain and hopelessness have nestled in your heart and you are feeling drained of the strength to go on, without the courage to do even the simplest tasks.

Even the most emotionally strong people are affected by discouragement and discouragement at some point in their lives.

Sometimes it is simply that we lose the emotional strength to face a problem and sometimes it is that the situation seems so big that we think we cannot handle it.

In those moments of emotional loneliness and despair, the Word of God, the verses of the Bible, remind us that our way of seeing things is limited, that we can see them from God’s point of view. And to achieve this, there is nothing better than reading his word. That is why we have compiled some of the most encouraging and comforting texts from the Bible.
