I am forever stuck when I reach the end of a letter, card, or even an email. It is such a beautiful sentiment to close with a precious verse from Scripture; a word that would linger in the reader’s mind and that she can hold on to as a personal reminder of God’s truth in her life.
Unfortunately letters and card writing are a dying art. It somehow seems so much more convenient to flick off an e-card or an email to drop a birthday, anniversary, or ‘I’m thinking of you’ message. Often these are written in haste, and I for one rarely take the time to find an appropriate Scripture with which to close.
Following are 15 encouraging verses with which to end emails, letters, and cards that I have found helpful to have on hand, and that you may like to use. Perhaps these will prompt you, as did the apostles of old, to pen a note ‘in your own hand’ and by doing so be a blessing to those in your life, as well as those in need around you.
Simply hover over each Scripture reference and the verse will come up :-).
