Though I've experienced symptoms of autism since I was a very young child, I've never been diagnosed with the disorder. I've found a great amount of comfort in reading the Bible and memorizing some scripture passages. The following are my favorites:
"It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes."
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
"Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved--you and your household." (Acts 16:31)
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.
††††In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)
"For our light affliction, which is but for a
moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory." (2 Corinthians 4:17)
