Shortly after the Happy Baby was moved to a different, larger hospital with better resources, a woman from our church delivered a red folder into my hands.
Later after our visit when I was alone in the Happy Baby’s hospital room and he was sound asleep in the crib, I opened the folder.
What I found was the most precious gift ever…
As soon as I finished reading the verses to myself, I scooted a chair next to my sleeping angel, cleared my throat and began to speak each verse over him.
As I read, I grew more and more confident that we would survive this trying season.
I grew more and more confident that no matter what, everything was going to be okay.
I grew more and more confident in my great and faithful God.
Reading through that Scripture Folder quickly became a little routine for us. It was an exercise that taught me how to fight against the enemy’s constant efforts to destroy my hope, plant seeds of doubt, and overwhelm me with fear.
A short while later another friend gave me a notebook filled with Bible verses – all written in her own handwriting.
She said in an attached letter that someone had made one for her when she was facing an incredibly painful season. She said she took her little notebook with her everywhere – reading it over and over.
I found myself doing the same – at red lights, in the middle of the night, in the pick-up line while waiting for the Happy Buddy to be released from camp…
Would you like to do the same for someone in your life?
I have included a Word Document in this post with all the verses you could need to make your own Crisis Scripture Folder or handwritten notebook.

Speaking God’s Word is a powerful way to walk through a trial.
Because His Word brings peace.
His Word brings hope.
His Word never fails.
Happy Crisis Scripture Folder-ing! 🙂
