Ever feel so completely overwhelmed you don’t even know what to do anymore? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. Life can be tough sometimes! We go through phases that are easier than others and some that are harder. Well, if you are in a spot where life doesn’t seem like it can get any harder (but somehow it does) we have some encouragement for you!
1. Find verses that comfort you and bring you peace such as these…
“As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.” Psalm 119:143
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3
“Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.” Psalm 55:22
“God’s name is a place of protection - good people can run there and be safe.” Proverbs 18:10
“Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.” Isaiah 41:10
“God is a safe place to hide, ready to help when we need him.” Psalm 46:1
2. Ask for prayer. It’s okay to be vulnerable! Go to your family, friends, or a mentor who you know will commit to praying for you day in and day out. It’s important to have people in your life who are going to lift you up in prayer!
3. Find friends who are going to encourage you. Friends who pray for you and encourage you daily are one of the biggest blessings in life! Have a support system so that you know you always have people cheering you on.
After reading over these verses and meditating on them, we hope you feel as encouraged as we did. Study these verses, write them on your mirror or school binder, commit them to memory. Whenever you are feeling down and overwhelmed, be reminded that God is always there for you with open arms! He wants you to run to Him. He wants you to need Him. Let Him embrace you with His loving arms. Surrender all your worry, stress, & anxiety to Him.
Lots of love,
