Tough Times? A few favorite verses …

Some days are just heavy with emotion and tasks that can weigh you down.

There’s nothing you can do about them but go through them
– no escaping,
no dodging,
no handing it off to someone else to deal with
… whatever …
and it can be really tough.
Old fashioned as it may seem, when you’re going through something major it’s always good to have God’s word in your heart and mind.

NO ONE loves and understands you like the Father … give Him a chance to help you make it right, give you the tools to do what needs to be done, provide the strength to hang on for one more day …

– sometimes you may not can think of exactly precise wording of a verse or where something  is but there’s tools available to help you find them – so click that link or go to biblegateway.com and begin a search … go on a hunt … you won’t be disappointed.
and when you do find those verses, oh! it’s like finding a treasure.

That’s what I felt about these sweet words below…
Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy
and I will give thanks to him in song.Psalm 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Isaiah 33: 2 O LORD, be gracious to us;
we long for you.
Be our strength every morning,
our salvation in time of distress.

Hebrews 12: 1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

1 Corinthians 2:7 we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.

Titus 1:2(we have) faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,

2 Timothy 1:9who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,

Revelation 3:20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.

Ephesians 3:14For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
