Whatever kind of country rooster clip art you like for your decor - you can find it from Trina

It's been such a fun weekend of country kitchen roosters and enjoying site-seeing such lovely rooster collectibles from dinnerware dishes to ceramic roosters and even our Webkinz Rooster and the cute rooster clipart like my little friend above. And if you've popped over from the delightful "Show Me Your Roosters" blog party being held by Barb at Bella Vista, just click here to see my country rooster kitchen decor and Christmas tree ornament, among other goodies. 🙂

Even in the midst of all the fun though, it's also been a difficult week for several of my friends – both online and off. Two have been given sad news at the doctor's office, others are struggling with health issues from Alzheimer's Disease to cancer. Still others range from being hit with one illness after another and not able come up for air in between to missing loved ones who have recently gone to be with the Lord. For all of them, I've spent much time in prayer, with my own heart grieving for and with them.

Prayer - comforting Bible verses - and uplifiting praise and worship music are ways I am encouraged and ways I love to encourage others

I remember when my beloved husband died. He loved the Lord and I rested in God's perfect timing, clinging mightily to "…my times are in Thy hand." But I remember thinking so often the first few weeks, "How can the world go on like normal when we are in the middle of this?" And now, my world is going on normally, while so many of my beloveds are in the middle of a crisis. But, as Paul reminds me often, "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 affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

One thing that so blessed me then, that I now love to share with others, is God's Word – written and sung. That's the reason for this Comforting and Encouraging Bible Verses series at SandwichINK. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make everything better instantly. But I can't. And I suspect that when we are in heaven, we'll discover some wonderful reasons why that wasn't the right approach. In fact, as I've studied Romans 5 this week, verses 3 and 4 reminded me that we truly are blessed through our trials and tribulations, hard though it may be. And one of the many blessings that comes from them is that problems drive us to God's Word where we can find such comfort and solace.

Isaiah is a favorite book of mine and Isaiah 41:10 is one of my favorite comforting and encouraging Bible verses in that book, though there are many I love. I particularly appreciate Isaiah 41: 10 in the New American Standard Version:

'Do not fear, for I AM with you;

Do not anxiously look about you,

for I AM your God.

I WILL strengthen you,

SURELY

I WILL help you,

SURELY

I WILL uphold you

with MY righteous right hand.'

I LOVE all those SURELY's! The King James Version uses YEA, which is good but not as strong as SURELY. For some reason, the NIV leaves them out entirely. But oh, what a blessing those SURELYs have been to me down through the years. I pray they will be a blessing to you as well!

Isaiah 41 10 - Do not fear for I AM with you - one of my favorite comforting Bible verses

I also found some wonderful praise and worship music for this encouraging Bible verse. Erica Lane sings Isaiah 41:10 which is from her album, Beautiful City, Revisited. It is very soft and sweet and perfect when everything is crazy around you and you are in need of some quiet peace and encouragement. Here it is in a  Smilebox eCard. 🙂

I hope and pray this lovely praise and worship music and the comforting Bible verses incorporated in the song have been a blessing to you today and will be in the future. The Sandwich Generation issues of caring for elderly parents as well as helping with grandchildren pretty much guarantee we will need comfort off and on throughout our lives. For that matter, life in general pretty much guarantees that. What a blessing that we have an even better guarantee in all the wonderful promises of our precious Lord God in the Bible!
