What Keeps Me Going This Week: 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

When life is tough — or even when it’s not — I’ve found comfort in the Bible. My favorite parts change from month to month, week to week, or even day to day.  Honestly, I should read it more than I do, because I’ve also found that life is better when I hang on to its promises and truth.

Here’s the verse that’s speaking to me right now, 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17.

This is a meaningful verse, because God has encouraged me so much today! I need to remember the source of all lasting encouragement.

    Thanks for sharing that Bristol. My favorite scripture is Proverbs 3:5-6. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” <3
