Memorizing Bible verses can be a comfort in so many ways. Recalling familiar Scriptures can carry me through the day, help when a crisis comes, encourage others, bring strength for suffering, and lift me up when I am under pressure.
My personal life-long Bible verse is Isaiah 41:10:
God says, “Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
