Daily Living Made Easier

Comforting Bible verses are so encouraging to all of us in the Sandwich Generation when we walk through various trials. Dealing with all ages – from grandkids to adult kids to elderly parents – it’s such a blessing that my favorite encouraging Bible verses are a “one size fits all!” 🙂

Because of aging eye changes I use the NIV Life Application Large Print Study Bible but I also love the Amplified Bible

I was reminded of that this week as I prayed for several young friends in different parts of the country who are dealing with health problems. Yesterday, when I was chatting with one of them, I asked her what her favorite comforting Bible verse was. What a delight to discover she picked Psalm 27:13-14 which is on my list as well!

I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.

I noticed she joined with me in preferring the New American Standard version of these encouraging Bible verses. Nowadays, thanks to aging eye changes, I use my NIV Life Application Large Print Study Bible. But my favorite version is still the New American Standard Life Application Bible and that’s the version I used to memorize this passage and I love it. I have to say, though, I also love the Amplified version. When I really need to “soak myself” in this passage, that’s a great one.

[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living! Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

Perfect words for the Sandwich Generation juggling the issues of caring for elderly parents and grandkids! Perfect words for all ages from grandkids up to seniors! A wonderful gift from our God that we can truly be thankful for!

It’s certainly what God hoped the nation of Israel would do when He delivered them from Egypt and even took them right through the Red Sea, totally protecting them from the hordes of Egyptians who were about to attack them! Sadly, they did not, but we can! 

When things look bleak, I read these encouraging Bible verses over and over, and remind myself that the God Who parted the Red Sea is the same God Who is still in control and overseeing me and any or all of the trials we may deal with over the years. I find that so comforting as I walk through the valleys that often come after the sweet pastures of rest.

During dark times, I also find myself listening more often to praise and worship hymn songs and music that remind me of God’s awesome power and His wondrous ability to, truly, work all things, even the sad or difficult things, for my good, because I love Him and because I am in Christ. That includes How Great Thou Art.

Lawrence Welk praise and worship music can be full of family memories for those caring for elderly parents

I was thrilled to discover it is one of the praise and worship hymn songs from Lawrence Welk’s worship music album, Songs of Faith. According to, it is sung by Ralna English and chorus. I have such lovely family memories of watching Lawrence Welk with my grandparents so that makes this song an extra treat! 🙂

I’ve just come out of one trial. Another could be right around the corner. That’s very common for the Sandwich Generation! At this moment in time, though, I am in a bit of a restful “pasture.” Even so, I found that song so uplifting and encouraging. I especially love the words, “When Christ shall come, With shouts of acclamation, And take me home, What joy shall fill my heart!”

I pray it blessed your heart as well, as you deal with your own Sandwich Generation issues while caring for your elderly parents and grandchildren.

Spiritual Sundays are full of encouraging Bible verses and delightful praise and worship hymn songs and music

    this is such a great post! that scripture is the one
    the Lord gave me for our fifth child, who is now 18!

    one of my fondest memories is of my grandmother
    rolling my hair on saturday evenings while we
    watched lawrence welk. 🙂

  6. Awwww, Lea, I love your sweet family memories!!! And what a special gift to receive such an awesome and encouraging Bible verse for your child. I never thought to do that. I grew up in a church most of my life, but didn’t really commit my life to the Lord til the year I got pregnant. So I had a lot of spiritual growing up going on as my kids were growing physically. 🙂 I’ll have to remember that idea! Thank you for sharing these with us. 🙂

    Thanks for this article.
    God’s word is the best. In my book, Preparing My Heart for Grandparenting, I encourage grandparents to pass on a love for God’s Word. I also share ideas to use scripture to pray for our grandkids.

    I’m thankful for my five GRANDS, who teach me so much.

    Hi Lydia, You’re welcome. I’m right there with you! To me, sharing the Love of God and His Word with our grandchildren is one of the most important goals for each grandparent! Your book, Preparing My Heart for Grandparenting, looks GRAND! 🙂 Thanks for letting us know about it. 🙂

    Hi Kaye,
    I think lots of grandparents feel like we both do. We don’t need riches to pass on a rich heritage. This book helps grandparents be intentional about passing on eternal values.

    As I wrote Preparing My Heart for Grandparenting, our kids announced another grandchild was on the way. How exciting! And Anna Joy, born on Father’s Day, is a keeper, just like all the rest. Each grandchild is so unique and special.

    Thanks for sharing with all of us.
