Getting Through Dark Days 

Psalm 43 5

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 43:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Life is not always sunshine and flowers. There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in and there are days when we just feel lonely. In these times, you need to lift your head toward God and give praise to your Savior. The way to forget your troubles is to remember God’s goodness. God loves you more than you will ever know. Turn to Him in your times of trouble. Thank Him for all the good in your life. He hasn’t forgotten you, He is close to the brokenhearted. Put your hope in God and rely on Him to get you through even the darkest of days. Let your faith and hope in God be the path to victory.

You Are Not Alone

2 Timothy 4 17

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 4:17

But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength

 

Doing the will of God can at times be lonely road.  Not everyone will understand or support what you are doing.  That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. In these moments you must remember that you are not alone. The Lord is with you, He is on your side and He will give you the strength to carry out His plan.

The Lifter of My Head

 

1 11-24 1 Psalm 3 3.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends.  For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, his goodness, and our blessings He will get us through it.
