Comforting Scriptures For the Unknown: Bible Verses for Comfort | Keep God in Life
We live in turbulent times. You wake up one day and it looks nothing like the last. News changes, people change, work changes. It can be hard to get a grip and sometimes it feels as if we are reaching out trying to grasp any sense of stability we can get.
The antidote? Just let go.
The minute you accept the fact that life is turbulent, that life has no structure, no day to day safety net, that is the day you are free. Fall back on the Lord to give you strength in the unknown, to guide and protect you as you navigate an ever-changing world. Here are some scriptures to remind you of the strength God provides when you need it most.
