40 Days of Psalm 119 - Day 5

What do you say to comfort someone facing a terminal illness? Patsy Clairmont had some unconventional words for her cancer-stricken friend.
Finding God's Light in Dark Times — Patsy Clairmont

Patsy Clairmont prayed that God would guide her to a Bible passage she could use to comfort her best friend Carol, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Patsy felt perplexed when she sensed the Lord was leading her to Genesis 1:3: "Let there be light." How could those words possibly encourage Carol? Join us today for a message laced with humor and inspiration as Patsy — a best-selling author and popular Women of Faith conference speaker — describes how God restored hope to her and a lifelong friend as they faced their darkest hour.
"Some of you are in really hard and difficult places, but God is not surprised by our situations. He longs for us to trust Him. He knows exactly where He's placed us."
— Patsy Clairmont

This reminds me of verses 5 through 7:
5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
