When times get tough it is an automatic response to look for comfort in God's Word. I can't count the number of times when my heart was troubled over something and I opened Psalms or Ecclesiastes seeking peace and hope. Of course prayer is a big help during those times, however adding scripture to that prayer time seems to help my heart so much more.
I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. - Psalm 34:4
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Psalm 23:4
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven - Ecclesiastes 3:1
(but keep reading past because it is some of the most beautiful and helpful scripture in all of the bible.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. - James 1:2-4
