Scripture Challenge Week 43- Encourage

I am sorry I am late with this weeks page, understandably there has been a lot going on this week and last week when I did my study little did I know then that these scriptures would be very much needed to me.
I normally have everything I want to say typed and ready to go a week in advance. I didn't feel it last week so I let it go. That's not like me normally I might mull it over a day , but it gets done. Then Thursdays events unfolded here at Fort Hood. It has touched me in ways I could not have imagined. Even though my family was not permanently changed by this forever, it had left me with some sort of PTSD. Strange to say it but have you seen the footage that a soldier took with the alarms going off in the background? Well I heard it on the tv yesterday and started to shake uncontrollably. Yes I know it over,he's caught , and that yesterday post was the most secure area on the planet with Obama being here. But it has affected me,
The point of all of this is that even though one man has affected my life so much I do still feel encouraged by the Lord. He is going to change this system of things. God did not allow this to happen, Satan saw a conflicted and confused person with doubt and used it to his advantage. The Lord gave me the encouragement I needed through my friends and family to get through the situation and will find a way to encourage me to work through whatever scars I may be facing now.
So when you are feeling stressed or down please and need comfort. I encourage you to open a bible and see what words God will give you to encourage you through it. He will provide.

As a side note, I want to thank every Vet and every active service member for the sacrifices they have made for this country.
