Dana Taunton, a lawyer in our Personal Injury & Products Liability Section, sent in verses from chapter 27 of Psalms for this issue. Dana had this to say:
In Psalm 27, we see that David’s life had its ups and downs. The ups were the good times. The downs were the difficult times. This happens to us also. My dad passed away a couple of years ago. The year before and the two years since have very been hard on my family, especially my mom, who had been married to my dad for almost 54 years. During this time, during one of my devotions, God gave me these verses and I have clung to and prayed them since then. Life will be difficult at times and it may seem like those difficult times will never end. But they will. God has not forgotten us. What was the belief that which supported David? It was that he would see the goodness of the Lord. There is nothing like the hope of eternal life to keep us from falling in hard times. Even the best saints are subject to faint when things get hard and the burdens seem overwhelming. But it is our faith in Jesus that keeps up hoping, praying, and waiting. And it is our faith that will deliver us because we can have “confidence” that we will see the “goodness of Lord.”
I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27: 13-14

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man may see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14
Joe Hall, who has worked for the past 49 years as a State Farm Agent in the Southeastern Region, furnished the following scriptures that he says he learned as a child and memorized. Joe’s mother would give him a dime to memorize scriptures, which was quite innovative and it paid off.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
