Verses that Encourage

The oversized desk my father had given me filled two-thirds of the tiny office in our cramped apartment. As I reached for the phone across the desk, my eyes fell to the 3x5 note cards propped against the desk lamp. On each card was a promise from God’s Word that gave me just enough courage to pick up the phone and make a funding appointment.

Going back to Dawson Trotman, memorizing God’s Word has been a hallmark of the The Navigators. For all aspects of our lives as believers, the Scriptures provide hope, encouragement, correction, and guidance. Ministry Partner Development is certainly an area where we need all of these!

What verses continue to encourage me in MPD twenty-four years later? Jeremiah 32:17 and 27; Ephesians 3:20,21; and Philippians 4:19, among others. God continually reminds me He is able and delighted to provide all I need for life and ministry.

We would love to hear from you what passages God has put on your heart. What verses have you memorized to keep you going in MPD? Let us know! Please email verses that encourage you in MPD to We look forward to hearing from you!
