For the days when you feel weak, discouraged, and tired, here are 10 Bible verses about strength that are encouraging and uplifting, to strengthen your faith in hard times.
There’s no denying that life can be so difficult.
Whether you are trying to lose weight, be a great mom, get through college, work through a difficult season of your marriage, get through a stressful time at work, or are just trying to juggle all of the demands of life, our strength fails.
Our willpower and our energy – both physical and emotional – has a limit.
So what do you do when you reach it?
Just give up? Not a chance.
- you’re tired and you feel like you can’t do it anymore
- you messed up (again) and just feel like a failure
- you know what you should be doing, but just can’t knuckle down and actually DO it
- another month went by and you’re still at, “I’ll start tomorrow”
- you’re trying as hard as you can and the results still aren’t coming
We have an Almighty God who is the source of our strength!
