10 Bible Verses for when you're Discouraged



Lately, I have had a lot of very discouraging days. I know I am not alone in this, we all have days that we just want to give up and throw in the towel. We get disappointed with ourselves or certain circumstances and discouragement begins to set in. It seems like this valley that we are going through is lasting longer than it should and we wonder if things will ever start looking up. During these times that nothing seems to go right, this is when we need to look to God the most.  God wants us to succeed! He also wants us to keep the faith and trust in his perfect timing. He knows exactly the reason for our discouragement and he has a greater plan for us. In fact, God is working out things in our favor. He sees the bigger picture. We just have to trust in him. So when you are discouraged and overwhelmed, here are 10 Bible Verses to read and remember.

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."  Matthew 11:28-29

"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."  Galatians 6:9


"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."  Phillipians 4:13

"The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all."   Psalm 34:17-19


"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." John 14:1-3
