How to Send a Card that Comforts in Difficult Times

Loving others through difficult times can be extremely difficult – what if you can’t find the words to say or you say the wrong thing? And what about loving others through difficult times from afar? In today’s world, we won't always be face-to-face with the people we love, but sending a card is the next best thing.

You don’t have to have the perfect words. You don’t have to know just what to say. As you sit down to write out words of encouragement for those you love, look to God’s Word for inspiration. Here are five Psalms you can use to uplift in a card.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and staff, they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4 ESV)

The LORD is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1 NIV)

The LORD is near the brokenhearted; he saves those crushed in spirit. One who is righteous has many adversities, but the LORD rescues him from them all. He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken. (Psalm 34:18-20 CSB)

God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble. (Psalm 46:1 CSB)

The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:2 NASB)
