“God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”
1 John 4:16, NIV

“Be still and know that I am God…”
Psalm 46:10,NIV

“Then the Lord will turn from his fierce anger, will show you mercy, and will have compassion on you…”
Deuteronomy 13:17, NIV

“As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.”
Psalm 103:13, NIV

“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”
Psalm 29:11, NIV

“The Lord your God is with you… He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17, NIV

“An emotion… is a complex state, relatively more enduring than an emotional episode, which itself includes various past episodes of emotional experience, as well as various sorts of disposition to think, feel, and act, all of which can dynamically interweave and interact. What holds these diverse elements together is their being part of a narrative.”
Peter Goldie. The Emotions: A Philosophical Exploration (Kindle Locations 187-189).

“Jesus wept.”
John 11:35, NIV
