Daily Devotional from the Upper Room

Praise be to the . . . Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
- 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)
Toward the end of her life, my grandmother went into a nursing home. I wanted to lift her spirits by finding a comforting Bible verse to send her each week. She was an amazing woman of faith, so I knew she would enjoy reading the verses. Because I was new to the Bible, I learned a lot as I searched for the right verses to encourage her. Many of the uplifting verses I found were in the Book of Psalms (18:2, 46:1, 62:8); but I also looked for verses she might not know as well -- such as Habakkuk 3:18-19 and Zephaniah 3:17. I wrote the verses in a notebook so that I wouldn't accidentally send the same verse twice. I compiled a list of 150 verses before my grandmother died.
Afterward, I bought a small journal, wrote the verses in it (one verse per page), and gave it to my mom, who suffers from depression. I also made journals for my mother-in-law, sister, and grandson. Then my sister made one for me, which I carry in my purse. I pull out my journal when I want a new verse to memorize or need a pick-me-up. Through these journals, my family members have shared God's comfort with one another.
