    Thank you! I needed this today. I was going searching for specific scripture to encourage my husband who works so hard and has so many days where he is met with the evil one’s discouraging trail of trials. As I searched and wrote down the scriptures I realized how absolutely parched I was in my own desert of discouragement.
    Thank you! May God fill you to overflowing with his love and blessings!
