Encouraging Bible Verses for Hard Times

In case anyone hasn't asked you lately, how are you?

While we've never met, I'm certain the responses will vary from "doing just fine" to "I'm not ok." Maybe you don't have the words to express your feelings right now. Either way, I hope you have a safe space to share where you are during this pandemic.
