  1. This is a great list. One of the verses we’re learning as a family now is “For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever and his faithfulness to all generations.” PSalm 100:5

  2. So grateful for scriptures, they turn us to peace and joy and knowledge.
    My favorite is “My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes. Thy friends do stand by thee, and they shall hail thee again with warm hearts and friendly hands.”
    D&C 121: 7 -- 9

    LOVE that promise.

  3. Someone else already mentioned it, but I have James 1:2 written out on my wall. There are so many verses meant to comfort our hearts, it’s hard to pick!
    Blessings,

  4. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you face trials of many kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverence. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
    How blessed we are to have a God who is our comfort and our sacrifice, and the most perfect example.

  5. This is a great list… I memorized the Psalm 23 for comfort just this year. I love that pinterest has come along and I can put beautiful images with the verses that I want in any emotion.
