One of the first verses I learned was from the book of St John: 'If ye abide in my and my words abide in you'... That concept of having a relationship so intimate I could actually abide in it was so amazing to me, Then to have the words of the creator of the universe live in me and taking root and life - what a privilege it was almost unfathomable I knew it was exactly what I wanted.. Maybe it was because I was involved in so much person conflict at that time I clung to these verses, they brought me peace and hope and vision and direction. These words have never failed me or I should Say He has never failed, not in 35 years. His word abiding in me gave me the fortitude to go through many storms in life and come out whole. We ALL go through storms, I could label a dozen or two, as I am sure you could too. It is how we come out on the other side that matters. When we abide in Him and His Word abides in us - we come out better. If we find our selves lacking, We need more Word and more of Him. We need to listen for the voice that speaks to our storm and says "peace be still".
I created a jpg for you using the verse in John, I hope you will be able to use in in your paper crafting!
