Sometimes there are days where we just need to read some
good words, strong words. We need to be reminded that
there is hope. On our darkest, coldest days there is hope to
We will always need words to carry us thorough, to inspire
us along the way. Because sometimes life gets heavy and is
difficult to keep treading upstream. Sometimes it’s hard to
breath and we feel alone. But were never truly alone.
I’ve always found what I was looking for in scripture. It has
always seemed to pull me through. To help me understand
and channel my emotions in a positive manner.
If you’re having one of those days where you just need to
hear Gods voice and be reminded of what He has promised
you, here is a collection of scriptures I’ve found so much
beauty and power in. I hope they lift your spirit and redeem
1. “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10)
So often we are figuring out ways to get ahead. Preparing
for what comes next. Rarely are we ever still. But just
imagine if we were. God says for us to be still. To wait for
Him. For us to surrender to Him because He is God. He is
making a way for us. We must be patient and wait on Him.
2. “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those
who are crushed in spirit” (Psalms 34:18)
Sometimes our hearts get torn and our life feels like it’s in
shambles. We feel broken inside and lacking in many areas.
We feel unrepairable. We feel unredeemable. We feel that
there is no fixing us. But God says otherwise. God says that
we may be broken and we may feel less than in that
moment, but He will save us. He is the redeemer of the
broken hearted. He can restore us and is always with us in
our moments of defeat.
3. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your
God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9)
No matter where you are in your stage of life, what you’re
going through, or what decisions you are trying to make.
God is there with you. Wherever you go, He is there. He has
gone before us. He wants you to be strong and courageous
during the turmoil. Putting your faith in Him. Accepting that
He knows what He is doing and that He will bring you
4. “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth
comparing with the glory that will be revealed in
us” (Romans 8:18)
God says that it gets better. Hallelujah, praise The Lord, it
does get better. There is so much hope in this verse. The
pain you feel right now, it won’t last. The hurt and heartache
you have, it will go away. The sufferings you are
experiencing won’t be there forever. Soon enough God will
reveal the good. Through it all, He is good and wants good
things for us. He doesn’t want to see us in pain, but He
wants us to lean on Him in those moments of desperation
and praise Him for what He has planned for you.
5. “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your
life?” (Matthew 6:27)
God has told us not to worry. That worrying changes
nothing. Instead it hinders and doubts your faith and all that
He stands for. For some of us worrying is second nature.
It’s hard not to worry over the aspects of our lives. It’s hard
to always trust something we can’t see. But God is right.
Worrying only strips you from your life. It adds nothing. It
gives you nothing, but robs you of the joy He wants to give
6. There is a time for everything, and a season for every
activity under the heavens” (Ecclesiastes 3)
Don’t rush your life. There is a season and a reason for
everything. If your season feels dry and unending, soon
enough He will bring you the sunshine you’ve been
searching for. We must go through life with the armor He
has given to us. We must be prepared for the good and bad
times. He has reasons for all that He does. Trust Him to
bring you through.
7. “I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will heal
you.” (2 Kings 20:5)
All the tears you cry in secret and prayers you so kindly
pray, He hears them. He sees them too. God knows all that
is on our hearts and He wants to help us. He can and will
heal us. Continue to pray and cry out to Him. He is in those
moments with you. Those moments of desperation. He will
not leave you there feeling defeated and alone. He hears us
and sees us and is always reaching out His hand to pull us
8. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified
because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he
will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
This is such a beautiful promise. God will never leave us.
He will never forsake you. When the rest of the world turns
their back on us, when everyone else leaves, He will still
and always be there. God is a God that will continue to love
us, provide for us, and show up for us. He is always
cheering for us, not just from the sidelines either. Let Him
be that stability in your life. Let Him be the one that loves
you unconditionally and choose your regularly.
