Fill in the blank with whatever you want – day, week, month, year. Let’s face it, sometimes life is just rough! We all have bad days and go through rough periods in our lives. Maybe it’s been a bad day at school, maybe things are difficult at home or maybe, like me, you’re just going through a time when it feels really hard to hear God speaking to you.
Whatever the reason, here are some scriptures to remember when you’re just feeling down:
Deuteronomy 31:8 – The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
Romans 5:5 – And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love.
Psalm 119:116 – Lord, sustain me as you promised, that I may live! Do not let my hope be crushed.
Hebrews 4:16 – So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
These are just a few verses to encourage you, there are tons more. I hope that these help to bless you this week if you’re going through a rough time. I know they’ve helped me.
“May these be a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out” –Galadriel, Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring.
