10 Scriptures to Help You Get Through the Hard Days

Click to Share!

Use these Scriptures for help to get through the hard days to come up with a battle plan to turn those days around and lean on Him to get through the day.

I don’t know about you, but some days are just hard.

The whining starts before we even make it down the stairs. Pushing and shoving, just trying to be the first one at the table. Sleepless nights. Staying up way too late working or watching television. The days that you can’t wait until bedtime, and yet it’s not even noon.

Ever had one of those days?

I could be wrong, but I think we all have at some point.

Maybe you wish you could add hours to your day because you just can’t fit it all in. Maybe you are so overwhelmed with life, you feel like you’re drowning. Streamlining your day sounds great, but how? Do you have a mountain of laundry that just never ends?

Scriptures to Get You Through the Hard Days

Instead of counting down the hours and minutes until bedtime, because we all know that isn’t going to help the day turn around, let’s commit to meditating on Scripture. Scripture is God-breathed, useful for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). If anything can turn our day around, it’s Scripture.

Is it easy? Of course not. Most days we would probably much rather throw ourselves a pity party, post a status on Facebook that would get the sympathy of all our friends, and go back to counting down the hours until bedtime. And please do not think for one minute I am pointing a finger at anyone but myself here. It’s hard. My selfish heart shines through, and I just want to go to the bathroom by myself without someone climbing on a counter while I’m gone. Really. Is it that hard to stay off the counters?

Let’s come up with a plan. Those hard days are inevitable. We don’t have to succumb to them. Let’s come up with a battle plan to take back our day. We have to combat the crazy. I have used affiliate links in this post. I do receive a small commission if you choose to shop through those links.

Are you ready?

Go grab 10 notecards, pieces of paper, pretty pens, open up a program like Picmonkey, or grab your FREE 10 Scriptures for Hard Days Printable below. We are going to create some Scripture cards to have on hand to help us battle those hard days. I’m providing the Scriptures for you to use. But feel free to add some of your own too. You know your struggles much better than I do.

10 Scriptures to Help Get Through the Hard Days

1. Matthew 11:28-30

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

2. 1 Peter 5:6-7

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,  casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”

3. Romans 8:28-29 

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.”

4. Proverbs 3:5-6 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

5. Jeremiah 29:11-14a

“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. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord…”

6. Philippians 4:6-7 

“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.”

7. Zephaniah 3:17 

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”

8. Philippians 4:13 

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

9. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

10. Matthew 7:7-8

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”

Look At Them Daily

Now that you have made your cards, place them in places you frequent each day. By the kitchen sink, in a cabinet, on a bathroom mirror, by a door, in the laundry room. Think about your day and what happens during the day. Maybe take the cards with you and place them in all of your places you spend your time each day. You can also keep the cards together, punch a hole in the corner and put them on a ring. Slip them into your purse or diaper bag so they are handy when you need a little encouragement.

I pray that your hard day turns around and you are able to make the best of it. Stay strong, dear sister. You can do this. Let’s feed our souls with Scripture and truth.

What Scriptures do you find helpful on the hard days that are not on this list? Please leave them in the comments so we can encourage each other.

This is one that I've been holding on to right now

Psalms 103:2-4 – Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.
