Do you have a favorite Bible verse? I know that might be like asking you if you have a favorite child or grandchild you love them all. But is there a verse that you come back to again and again? The verse that picks you up when you have fallen. A verse that’s like the North star when you’ve lost your way. The verse I want to share with you today. I am sharing for a very personal reason.

It is the verse I clung to years ago when my young wife died from cancer. It is a verse that helped me to make some sense of suddenly being a single dad with two little boys trying to pastor a church. And well, it helped me then and it helps me now to live life with joy. This verse in the Book of Ecclesiastes which has turned out to be one of my favorite books in the Bible. And you should see the looks on peoples faces when I tell them that Ecclesiastes is one of my favorite books, but I love Ecclesiastes because in it Solomon is taking on the hard painful issues of life and answering them.
