Are there certain scripture passages that sustain you during times of troubles or sadness?

The scripture that sustains me as I travel to my congregations 5 hours away from home is " they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings like eagles they shall run and not get weary, WAIT ON THE LORD" Is'nt it not wonderful that no matter what our circumstances if we wait on the Lord we shall have new strength. Driving so far tires one physically but when i reach the place that God called me to minister in this year the peace that passes all understanding just floods my whole body as well as my 14 year old who travels with me every Friday. I thank God for this verse that carries me on eagles wings every day PRAISE THE LORD.THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM.

Pastor higgins thanks you for that wonderful scripture verse. And thank you for taking the gospel message 5 hours away. I used to teach violence prevention programs to students and teachers in rural areas in my state. I would be on a bus for a minimum of five hours also. Sometimes the little town would not be on a map!! God will reward you mightily for your faithfulness, God bless you my sister for your ministry. And thank your son for me also!!

Rev. Rogers,

Ah Rev. Rogers you have asked the right question again!!! Jesus said in John 15:5 that "apart from me you can do nothing". These words are a constant reminder to me that I should not attempt to do anything without the approval of Jesus. Now of course my human nature(flesh) is always fighting against the Holy Spirit but I pray that the Spirit will control my human nature(flesh) so that God's perfect will can be done in my life. These words of Jesus are a compelling truth about our lives that we cannot do anything without Jesus.
