We all need encouragement. All of us. As a man who is staking all of his present virtue and future hope on Jesus Christ, my encouragement comes from the Holy Bible, an ancient library which gives us a picture of TRUTH as no other, where Truth is more than a concept but a concrete reality, a being who is love and the Fullness of Truth.
Here is some Scripture from which I have been encouraged. I hope it helps you as well:
“Blessed is the man whom you discipline, O Lord, and whom you teach out of your law, to give him rest from days of trouble, until a pit is dug for the wicked. For the Lord will not forsake his people; he will not abandon his heritage; for justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it.” (Psalm 94:12-15 ESV)
“Yet God my King is from of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.” (Psalm 74:12 ESV)
“He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.” (Isaiah 40:29 ESV)
“He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken. It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” (Isaiah 25:8-9 ESV)
”Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35 ESV)
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all. (2 Thessalonians 3:16 ESV)
