Five Biblical Reasurrances for Worldy Emotions

Happy Saturday! It finally feels like Fall after some unseasonably warm weather we’ve had over here in Cleveland. I even have my pumpkin candles burning this morning – my favorite. 

Today I wanted to share a few bible verses that I love and help to reassure me when I feel I’m starting to lose my way. Especially this week – I was really low on patience this past week. But, I guess everyone has their days (weeks?). 

Whenever I start to question my path, I remember this:

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. 

Whenever I find myself getting caught up in vanity, I look to this verse:

Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

When Justin and I have days where I feel like we’re not on the same page: 

Matthew 19:4-6 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

This also illustrates a modern day Interpretation taken from Malachi: The Devil will exaggerate your mate’s failures and inadequacies, sow suspicion and jealousy, indulge your self-pity, insist that you deserve something better, and hold out the hollow promise that things would be better with someone else. But hear Jesus’ words, and remember; God can change hearts and remove all hardheadedness if we will allow Him. 

When I feel guilty because I inevitably sin: 

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

And when I’m just plain exhausted, anxious, or worried: 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

I’m earnestly trying to spread the word and do my best to honor God’s will. I hope these verses help someone else, too.
