Sometime Life doesn't go the way we want. 

Little pebbles tumble in the way and create road blocks. 

Tires go flat, accidents happen, sickness strikes.

Still at these moments, God shows His lovingkindness by letting the sun rise, freshening the air, and letting the water flow.

We all know someone who has had something fall into their path. I think of a little girl at my church who was recovering from leukemia, but recently had a relapse. Our church family is very concerned about her.

I think of the people in the Philippines for their lose of life and damage from the typhoon.

You may know someone who can't find their smile at work today.

Let's reach out and bless those whose are working through issues.

Share a blessing with those in your community.

And praise God for His presence.

Please share a comfort verse in the comment section.

I will have a book give away this weekend, choosing from recent author books to give to one commenter. You may enter as often as you like on this post. We love seeing the Bible verses.

PLEASE REMEMBER you must be a follower of this website and U.S. only to enter (sorry-postage is too high otherwise)


I will give the winner a choice of five books to choose one from.

  1. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, with prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

  2. This is the first comfort verse I had and it's been my favorite. It's stuck with me through thick or thin and still sticking today. "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." Psalm 121:1-2

    1. Fabulous verse, Barbara.

    2. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10. He loved us, you and me, Mary, knowing our hearts and thoughts, and sent His Son to pay for our wrongs. Jesus showed us we are worth dying for! That blows me away when I think on it. The ups and downs of life, the wonders and doubt's and insecurities we have...this verse changes everything
