Ever feel down? Try this!
Are you feeling down or like nothing good is happening in your life? Maybe you feel like you're not good enough or like God doesn't care about you. I want to tell you that you're not alone in feeling that way, and that there is hope for you. I know this to be true because I feel often like this too.
One of the things that has helped me when I'm feeling negative is to remember that God loves me unconditionally. (Just as I am!)
In Romans 8:38-39, it says, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." This means that no matter what happens in our lives, God's love for us never changes.
Another thing that can be helpful is to remember that God has a plan for our lives. In Jeremiah 29:11, it says, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." This means that even when things seem tough, we can trust that God has a plan for our lives and that it will ultimately be for our good.
Lastly, I want to remind you that you are not alone in your struggles. In Hebrews 4:15-16 it says, "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
This means that Jesus our Master understands what we are going through and that we can come to him in prayer and find the help and comfort we need.
So if you're feeling down, remember that God loves you, has a plan for your life, and is always there to help you through tough times. Keep these verses at the top of your mind and remember that you're not alone. If you ever need prayer feel free to join our Facebook community at:
