Scriptures To Stand On, Clinging To God’s Word

Oh how life has been a whirlwind lately. In these moments of life when things are hectic and tiring it is easy to be tossed around. Lately I have felt like I am floundering, grasping. My faith that God is always good in ALL things is unshaken, but to continue clinging tightly to that I have to root myself firmly into the word of God.

The community that I have found in the world of blogging has been amazing. So much love and so much support. Messages, comments, emails, and texts have been abundant. I know that in this rough season of life we are being wrapped in prayer. Recently I reached out to some other bloggers and asked them to send me scriptures that they can stand upon during life’s tough times. I was so encouraged when so many sent me verses that they find truth and life in. 

Today I want to share a few of those with you.

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
2 Timothy 1:7

Whitney –  Work It Mommy & Becky – BYBMG

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

Michelle – Grammie Time

Do not be afraid, for I am your God, I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand.

Ruthie – Rear Release Regroup

Peace I leave with you;  My peace I give unto you.  Not as the world gives, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

Jessica – Sweet Little Ones

…he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.’  I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.  Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Tina – Go Big Or Go Home

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
Luke 6:45b

Laureen – Chateau Deveau

You have been told, O man, what is good, and what the Lord requires of you: Only to do right and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8

Emily – Dear Owen

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Crystal – Hall Around Texas

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Psalm 51:12

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Romans 8:18

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.
Philippians 4:4

And here are a couple that I have loved over the years.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:6-8

It is my hope and prayer that these verses speak to you in good times and bad, just like they have spoken to these women. So many of these verses were sent to me along side stories of difficult times and faith in a God who is bigger than any circumstance or problem.

Let us hold tightly to the one who holds all things together in the palm of His hand.

What verse do you stand on?

    Such a great collection of verses. Hang in there and keep speaking those verses over your life!

  • My weakness is always falling into the trap of comparing myself to others. Even when it comes to serving, consoling…even when it comes to the way I pray I often compare myself to those who do it better. I found this verse a few years back and it always helps me put my focus back on my gifts. I so needed some of your verses today so thanks for sharing!

    6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully Romans 12:6-8

    • Yes!!! I do that too, so often. Thanks for sharing that verse with me.

  • Beautiful. The words of life right here! I needed this. Thank you for supporting and uplifting others when you are going through a rough time also.

  • I needed this today – thanks for sharing! It’s so easy sometimes to get caught up in the negativity around us and try to control things we cannot. Everything is planned for us and we need to trust and cling to God’s word!

    • Amen! So glad this was encouraging for you.

  • Tina
