Verses that inspire

Have you felt lately like you are overwhelmed just by regular, everyday life? And them something else happens that is unexpected, extraordinary, and you feel like shouting, "I can't take any more!"

Ah, yes, many of us know that feeling well. (Grin)

I'm just a learner on this pathway, but I do know that there is something that will help.

If I will just do it.

And sometimes, as my grandma used to say, that's easier said than done.

For us to handle these times and these situations, we need to sink our roots deep into the Word, and focus on our relationship with our Father. If we will trust Him, He will strengthen us.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:6-7)
But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,    whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water    that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;    its leaves are always green.It has no worries in a year of drought    and never fails to bear fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
I know from experience just how difficult it can be, to look past the ogres of bad health, financial worries, family conflict, and more, and see the hand of Jesus, reaching down to strengthen us.
But even if we have trouble seeing Him, He is still there.

These verses have meant so much to me in times of difficulty. I hope that they bless and comfort all who read here. If you've a verse to share with all of us, won't you leave it in a comment below?

I was reading this morning, and this verse spoke to me, before I read your post. It totally fits with what you were talking about.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
