How I Did It: Part 4

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

The third and most important/successful way I got through everything was by digging into the Bible. When I was at my lowest points where hope seemed unattainable, I would dig into God's Word. Each and every time, God would reveal his love, compassion, support, and comfort to me. I also found a lot of love and support at church. The church is where I had people who loved me unconditionally, that would pray for me, and help guide me through the hard times. I also found that taking the time to worship God and thank him for getting me through each day, drew me closer to Him which made everything a little bit easier. The pain didn't go away for good, but I can honestly say that in those moments where I just sat and focused on God and my relationship with Him was where I found the most happiness. Happiness more incredible than anything I've ever experienced. God truly poured his love and mercy over me during those times. So my advice for you, during those times where the pain seems endless, is to draw close to God. Lean on Him, talk to Him, trust Him, and find your strength in Him. He promises to take care of the brokenhearted and I'm living proof of that.

Here are some of the bible verses that helped me during my hard times. I wrote these out and put them on my mirror, in my car, on my dresser, on my notebooks, above my bed, and on my desk. That way, no matter where I was, I had a constant reminder of God's unfailing love for me. I hope they will give you some encouragement too :)

"And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast." - 1 Peter 5:10

"Those who know Your name will trust in You, for you Lord have never forsaken those who seek You." -Psalm 9:10

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." -Psalm 34:18

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." -Romans 8:28

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." -1 Corinthians 13:4-8

"Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress, and He hears my voice." -Psalm 55:17

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." -Isaiah 41:10

Some other verses that helped me out are: Hebrews 13:5, Psalm 147:3, James 1:19-20, Psalm 145:14, Ecclesiastes 3:1,4, Matthew 7:7, Psalm 37:8, Psalm 138:3, Psalm 94:19, Isaiah 66:12-13, James: 1:3, 2 Timothy 2:10

Trust God- He knows what's best for you and will get you through anything that comes your way!
