Words to chew on...

I had a wonderful talk with a friend yesterday. In the course of the talk, she asked if I had a list of scriptures I use to battle discouragement. It just so happens, I do. This list has grown over time, and will continue to grow. But these I have either memorized or referred to often to battle the devil when he would speak lies to or about me. I counter with these precious truths. These are words to meditate upon, and chew over and over and digest. And I figured that since I had typed them as a list, I would share with all of you. I know you will find them encouraging as well.

Psalm 121:1-4 Psalm 121:5-8 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Isaiah 63:7-9; Romans 8:1-2; Romans 8:12-17;
Romans 8:18-19; Romans 8:23-24; Romans 8:26-30;

Thanks, Chris. I want to write these down and go through them. I also have passed them on to another friend that I have recently gotten to know.
