When I (Rocky) asked for Scriptures or song lyrics that bring encouragement during a difficult time like this, Kim Hendrix was kind enough to reply. She pointed to a few words from the hymn, Be Still, My Soul; words like,"Leave to thy God to order and provide, in every change He faithful will remain... Be still, my soul! thy God doth undertake to guide the future as He has the past... Be still, my soul! the waves and winds still know His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below."
Kim also listed Psalm 56:3-4, which says, "When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You. In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?"
If our trust is in God, one day all "sorrow (will be) forgot, love's purest joys restored."
