What Keeps Me Going This Week: Proverbs 17:17

What Keeps Me Going This Week: Proverbs 17:17 December 10, 2012

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, Proverbs 17:17.

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

I am so thankful for the friendships God has given me. They are certainly a treasure.

This week, what verses are especially meaningful to you?

  • God has sent us a text message and we need to read it. I am glad that you are finding comfort where the Lord leads you in His word. Nice post!

    My favorite is Mathew where it says anyone who marries you will be guilty of adultery. There are some great parts in there that tell you what your son is too. enjoy:)

      Seriously,…… Don’t bother to even say anything if you cannot say anything nice. I do believe that we are not here to judge, so instead we will all pray for you and not judge, but please move on….

      A Christian man would not be committing adultery by marrying Bristol because she has never been married and both Bristol, and her beautiful son Tripp, are children of the Lord. I suggest you actually read Matthew instead of pretending to know what is says, especially Mt 7:1 “Do not judge others or you too will be judged.” Mt 7:5 “You hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye before looking for the speck in another’s eye.”

    Hebrews 11:1. Bristol, I’ve been using a wonderful devotion book that you may enjoy. Here’s a link to it:

    Matthew 22:21. ….At that He said to them, “Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”. If only our churches (especially my Catholic faith) had remembered this better we would not be in the state we are in presently. I defy any clergy to show me where Jesus said the acts of mercy and charity are Caesar’s province!

  • Sweet Bristol- thank you for sharing – obviously some people don’t read or know their Bible very well- God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17 and Mercy triumphs over judgement- James 2:13 We are gloriously saved and mercifully being transformed into His image! Hugs

    Blessings to you and your family…Praise God for your faithfulness and courage to share your testimoney with the world.I loved your family’s t.v. Series.I love your moms book. More people should read its. We do NOT have a good word church here so I get wonderful teachings from Christian t.f….DAYSTAR and T.B.N. Andrew Wommack has a fantastic site with revelation teachings and he gives out free material if people can’t or WON’T pay for it! I have learned so much . He has corrected so many teachings that I have that are error……. He has a huge Bible college and adding to it daily! I also have great respect for Joseph Prince who has a huge church in Singapore. If you checked out these anointed ministries, you will be so blessed and knowledgeable in the word. Dont let the world get to you…..they are ignorant.. We are told to pray for our enemies…someday their knees will bow and their tongues will confess that “Jesus is Lord. ” I am a seventy year old mother and grandmother. I have lots of experience. The Lord has brought me through being a widow, my first born son going to Heaven at a young age, and healing me of cancer when the doctors gave me no hope. Praise the name lof Jesus. I love your family ……….May you be continually blessed as you all continue your walk with The Lord…….Joseph Prince has a wonderful daily devotional..5 minutes a day will totally change your life and your parents.
