10 Comfort From

10 Comfort From Scripture Psalm 23 “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Ezekiel 34:16 “I will… bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick.” 2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”

11 Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you.… Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation.” Here are the Characteristics of People Who Will be Helpful in Dealing with Grief: • They listen more than they speak. • They do not pass judgement on you or your feelings. • They do not tell you how to feel. • They don’t change the subject when you talk about your loss. • They are accepting of you. • They do not respond with cliches such as: “He’s in a better place now.” “It was God’s will.” “You can get married again.”
