BIBLE WOMAN

Fred de Noyelle I Godong

Philip Kosloski - published on 02/08/20

The Bible is full of encouraging words from God that can improve our mood.

Sometimes circumstances in our lives can leave us in a depressed mood, and what we need is an encouraging thought to get us out of a rut. One of the best places to turn to is the Bible! the Bible is God’s word spoken to us and is full of uplifting verses.

Here is just a small sampling of verses that can help encourage us in difficult times and lift up our spirits.

1Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

2Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

3It is the Lord who goes before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

4God indeed is my salvation; I am confident and unafraid. For the Lord is my strength and my might, and he has been my salvation. (Isaiah 12:2)

5Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
