[Scripture in red indicates wisdom or instruction from our Savior and God's only Son, Jesus Christ.]

2 Samuel 12: 22-23 King David mourned for his child when the child was sick, but said 'Why should I fast when he is dead? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him one day, but he cannot return to me.'

Psalms 31: 5 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

Psalms 32: 7-8 For the faithful, things always work out for the best. The Lord says, 'I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.'

Psalms 139: 1-6 The Lord provides a path for us, but His reasoning is too wonderful for us to know. We must trust that He has a plan for us.

Ecclesiastes 7: 3 Sadness has a refining influence on us.

Ecclesiastes 9: 1-4 This is the trap that unbelievers fall into: Good people often suffer the same treatment as sinners. Many sinners appear to get off easy. This is true only during life. All people eventually die.

Ecclesiastes 9: 12 People can never predict when hard times might come.

Isaiah 26: 19 We have this assurance: Those who belong to God will live; their bodies will rise again!

Isaiah 55: 8-9 The Lord's thoughts are completely different from yours, and His ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. His ways and thoughts are way beyond the comprehension of any human.

Isaiah 57: 1-2 Good and righteous people often die before their time, but no one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. For the godly who die will rest in peace.

Isaiah 57: 15-19 The Lord lives in His holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble, and He will comfort those who mourn.

Lamentations 3: 21-33 No matter the calamity, keep your faith in the Lord. His love never ends. His mercies begin afresh each day. The Lord does not abandon anyone forever. Though He teaches us through grief, He also shows compassion by bringing encouragement.

Matthew 4: 7 Do not test the Lord your God.

Matthew 26: 36-46 Jesus prayed before His capture at Gethsemane, 'Father, if possible, let this cup of suffering be taken from Me, yet let your will be done, not Mine.' We must always trust God, for He has a perfect plan.

Mark 14: 35-36 Jesus prayed before His capture at Gethsemane, 'Father, if possible, let this cup of suffering be taken from Me, yet let your will be done, not Mine.' We must always trust God, for He has a perfect plan.

Luke 10: 29-37 Jesus tells the story of the Good Samaritan to answer the question, 'Who is my neighbor?' It is often a person who has experienced personal tragedy who understands the suffering of others and gives mercy to those in need.

Luke 22: 41-42 Jesus prayed before His capture at Gethsemane, 'Father, if possible, let this cup of suffering be taken from Me, yet let your will be done, not Mine.' We must always trust God, for He has a perfect plan.

John 6: 44-45 Jesus said, 'No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them from the dead.' God draws us to Jesus as we comprehend Jesus' miracles and learn from His teachings. 'They will be taught by God.'

Acts 2: 25-28 The Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me. He has shown me the way of life, and He will give me wonderful joy in His presence.

Acts 14: 21-22 The apostles Paul and Barnabas preached that we must enter into the Kingdom of God through many tribulations.

Acts 21: 14 The will of the Lord be done.

Romans 5: 3-6 Trials in life are good for us. They help us to learn and to understand when others go through their own trials. Testing strengthens our character, and the Holy Spirit is always there to give us love and guidance, if we will only have faith and listen.

Romans 8: 18-25 All Christians experience anguish over life's trials on earth. Our hearts groan to be released from suffering. But we know that God will give us our full rights as His children, including the new bodies He has promised us, and we must wait patiently.

1 Corinthians 3: 10-15 There is only one foundation-Jesus Christ. Others may now build upon that foundation, but there will come a time of testing at the Judgment Day to see what kind of work each builder has done. Everyone's work will be put through the fire for testing.

2 Corinthians 1: 3-7 God is the original source of every mercy. God comforts us in all our troubles so that we can encourage others who go through similar hardships. The more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with His blessings through Christ.

2 Corinthians 4: 8-10 God is with us in our troubles, so we must keep our faith. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not broken. Through suffering, these bodies of ours constantly share in the death of Jesus so that His life may be seen in our bodies.

2 Corinthians 4: 16-18 Never give up, because troubles that seem big now are really quite small. Yet such despair leads to an immeasurably great glory that will last forever. Present hardships will soon be over, so we must look beyond current troubles for the joy to come.

2 Corinthians 7: 10 God sometimes uses sorrow to turn us away from sin. Sorrow without repentance is the kind that results in destruction.

2 Timothy 4: 7-8 On the day of the Lord's return, the crown of righteousness awaits all those who remained faithful to Him in life. The prize is for all who eagerly look forward to His glorious return.

James 1: 2-4 When trouble comes your way, be grateful for the test of your faith and the new strength it will bring, for when your faith is fully developed, you will be ready for anything.

James 5: 10-11 Remember to endure suffering with patience. Job is an example of a man who endured patiently. From his experience we see how the Lord's plan finally ended in good, for He became full of tenderness and mercy.

Results Can Vary: Common words are ignored (such as: "if, for, and, because, when, what, where..."). If a word is not found in our keyword database, that word is also ignored. For example, 'sowing love' could find a passage referring to forbidden foods listed in the Old Testament because 'sowing' is not a keyword and 'cloven' includes the characters 'love.' Finally, not all Bible text is searched. Only significant words are considered, although that list is being constantly refined.
Note to Readers: This is a condensed representation derived from several versions of the Christian Bible. Scripture and other information are presented here so readers can refer to and interpret the same passages in their preferred versions.
