Clinging to Scripture

"What Scripture verse are you clinging to?"

Years ago, a friend asked me this. At the time, I was dealing with some issues, and in a rare moment of vulnerability, I shared with her what I was struggling with.

"What verse is getting you through this?" she asked.

Although I'd never thought of it this way before, I knew immediately which verse I'd been clinging to for dear life.
Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 NLT
In it, I'd found the comfort and strength I desperately needed.

Over the years, I've gone back to that same questionoften reminding myself and sometimes asking others...

Where in God's Word are you finding what you need to get through your current struggle?

In Christ,

  1. I am clinging to Scripture too, my friend... Psalm 34:14b: "Embrace peace-- don't let it get away!"

    AMEN friend, Amen.

  2. I like to collect questions to help me through times and this one is a great one to add to my list. I usually have a yearly verse to guide me too. This year I am daily praying Psalm 27:4. But always open to other verses God sends my way.

  3. Laura, I am so grateful we have Scripture to hold onto. This year my focus is on Luke 8:50 but from week to week, I have others which speak into my heart that which I need at that very moment. Wonderful post!
