When I got home, I enjoyed reading through the scriptures that had meaning to my friend. The exact scriptures that she treasured and considered sure comfort for those in need, are the ones that I am enjoying the most today.
Right now I'm looking at a page just a few pages into Alison's book.
Under the heading of Peace she has listed one of my favorites
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27
Under the heading of physical sickness she has listed this verse which to me embodies the life that Alison lived most especially when she was sick.
"The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down." Psalm 145: 13b-14
Some of her headings are more specific than others and one heading is cerebral palsy and epilepsy which was something that she suffered with throughout her life. For that specific need she listed one of my favorite verses which is;
"The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
