Scripture to Lift my Heart
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
"For I know the plans I have for you," declare the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Romans 15:13 NIV
May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Psalm 127 3-5
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
Psalm 139 13-16
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
For he has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one;he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit
