Thus saith the Lord: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for on these things I delight." Jeremiah 9:23-24
"Oh to Grace how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be. Let thy goodness, like a fetter bind my wandering heart to Thee!"

O God, Hear My Cry
The only thing bringing me comfort right now is scripture, so I thought I would share.
Psalm 4 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have delivered me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? how long will you love vanity, and seek after falsehood? Selah.
But know that the LORD has set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
There are many that say, Who will show us any good? LORD, lift up the light of your countenance upon us.
You have put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their grain and their wine increased.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, LORD, only make me dwell in safety.
