    Could you participate to post specific scriptures for times like these that you love and have found to edify your faith during these very trying times? I think it would be a blessing for many in the spirit of love, encouragement, affirmation and unity. Some people have family that will be affected by these laws and social climate and others are facing very serious economic pressures or health issues. Yet others are even faced with difficult decisions on jobs, moves and all sorts of issues. There is a lot of uncertainty about what we are experiencing, feeling rather helpless as it is unfolding. This sentiment of uncertainty and even fear are being expressed all over the world. As we believers trust in the L-rd, knowing that our Heavenly Father loves us, hears us, sees us and is here with us, let's have compassion on one another specifically for what this country and world are going through.


    Romans 12:15 Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.

    Romans 15:1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.

    Psalm 103:13–14 As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.

    Amos 5:10-14New International Version (NIV)
    10 There are those who hate the one who upholds justice in court
    and detest the one who tells the truth.

    11 You levy a straw tax on the poor
    and impose a tax on their grain.
    Therefore, though you have built stone mansions,
    you will not live in them;
    though you have planted lush vineyards,
    you will not drink their wine.
    12 For I know how many are your offenses
    and how great your sins.

    There are those who oppress the innocent and take bribes
    and deprive the poor of justice in the courts.
    13 Therefore the prudent keep quiet in such times,
    for the times are evil.

    14 Seek good, not evil,
    that you may live.
    Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you,
    just as you say he is.

    Daniel 8:25

    He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.

    John 14:27 NIV
    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.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I am struggling to see the good in these times. I am angry and my heart grieves for the willful blindness and cold hearts that seem to shout all the louder each day. And yet these are the birth pains that Jesus spoke about with his disciples concerning His return, where love would cool and there would be wars and rumors of wars. My prayer is that my heart stays soft and that I am not deceived by false doctrine or feel good gospel.

    Isaiah 30:18-20

    18Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him. 19O people in Zion, inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you.20Although the Lord has given you bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher.…
