My ‘go-to’ Bible verse

There is a verse from Psalm 56 that, while consisting of just ten little words, has comforted and healed me throughout my life: “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee” (verse 3). There is a lot of meaning behind those words.

I was a small child when my dad taught them to me. Our family had just moved to a new house, where, for the first time, I would have my own bedroom. When it was time to go to bed that first night after moving, I was terrified by how big, and dark, and lonely my new room felt. My dad cuddled me in his arms and told me that I didn’t need to fear because I could trust in my Father-Mother God to comfort me.
