I have four cards to send this week and I want to put a personal note in each one. I scheduled them in my Day-Timer because I want them to arrive on specific days.

These cards are “Remembering Cards.” On the year anniversary of a death, I send a card to the family members with a favorite memory of their loved one or a scripture verse. Sometimes I send a poem.

God never fails to give me the words of hope and encouragement. After all, He is the Father of sympathy.

2 Corinthians 1:34, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Sympathy (pity and mercy) and the God [Who is the Source] of every comfort (consolation and encouragement), Who comforts (consoles and encourages) us in every trouble (calamity and affliction), so that we may also be able to comfort (console and encourage) those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort (consolation and encouragement) with which we ourselves are comforted (consoled and encouraged) by God.”

Do you…

  • Need sympathy?
  • Need pity?
  • Need mercy?
  • Need comfort?
  • Need consolation?
  • Need encouragement?
  • Have trouble?
  • Have calamity?
  • Have affliction?
  • Have distress?

Call on the Father of sympathy.
