The list grows longer every day, but the top 3 are Psalm 27, Romans 5:1-5, and Hebrews 11.

Is. 40:31; Gen. 12: 1-3; Matt. 11:12.

I could go on.

The entire Bible is a continuing source of "hope" and "strength" for the Psalmist has declared, "How sweet are thy words unto my taste, yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth. Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy WORD is a LAMP unto my feet, and a LIGHT unto my path." (Ps. 119:103 - 105) Yet the greatest hope that we can communicate to a world in need of spiritual food is the Apostle Paul's words to the Thessalonian believers in 1 Thessalonians 4: 13 - 18. It concludes by stating, "Wherefore, COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS."

My favorite Psalms is 73. It came to me at a time when I was trying to have a "Pitty Party". Phillipians 4:8 is my checklist of things to remind me how to think more positively. And when I feel overwhelmed the scripture comes to me that in this world you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer I (Jesus) have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

In Christ, Carmen
