8 Bible Verses for Depression to Shine Light Into Darkness
Verse #1: God Will Never Leave You It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed (Deuteronomy 31:8).
The angels’ message on that first Christmas concluded with, “…and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.”
That hopeful greeting, “Peace on Earth,” is often etched on Christmas cards and sung about in carols. But frankly, it doesn’t seem to be working.
There’s so much turmoil around us. The entire world is living nervously under the threat of nuclear war.
The United States is sharply divided by politics.
Can Our Country Care for the Caravan?

My wife is writing a book about hospitality. I think she’s qualified. Over the past fifty years, Judy has entertained over 1000 preachers and missionaries. And, I have on several occasions, without advance warning, brought homeless and hurting people to our house and we’ve kept them in our home overnight. She wasn’t thrilled about that, but she quickly made provision. Big, planned parties and small impromptu get-togethers have occurred often in our home. The Bible instructs us to, “Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” My wife has obeyed that command often over the years.
Peace of Mind
2 Corinthians 2:12-17
12 Now when I went to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ and found that the Lord had opened a door for me, 13 I still had no peace of mind, because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I said goodbye to them and went on to Macedonia.
14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. 15 For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task? 17 Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.”
