Verses that inspire
When we are sad, we can find uplifting words in our Bible. When we are troubled, we can find comfort and reassurance. When we are frightened, we find refuge.
There is something there for all of our situations. And it's always just what we need.
Proverbs 25:11 tells us:
Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket.
Another translation puts it this way:
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.

II Corinthians 1:2-4 tells us that we can encourage others with what we have experienced:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus
Christ. Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts
us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble
with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
