Last week my blog posts focused on the times when life is difficult and stressful. But in contrast, this week, I will focus on bible verses we can read to encourage and inspire you when you’re going through some tough times – they will lift your spirits and help you gain a new perspective on a tough situation.
The bible contains many instances where it encourages us to be strong and courageous even when we’re going through some difficult times. I’m going to share some verses this week that you may find helpful to use in your morning devotions as when we start our day feeling hopefully and inspired by God, it will help us to be more positive in our interactions with others during the day. Remember, all things are possible when we trust God, because His mercies are new every morning.
God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,Lamentations 17:7-8 (The Message)
his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He’s all I’ve got left.
Personally I love The Message translations of these verses, as it make sit clear that, even when we feel all hope is gone, it worth “sticking with God…He’s all I’ve got left”.
Be inspired by these words that even when you feel all hope is gone, God is still faithful.
Ever-faithful God, I cling to you In every way you've shown that you are good There's no other love compares with you Forever strong, forever true Ever-faithful God, I cling to you
