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.

10 Beautiful Scriptures to Help You Get Through the Hard Days 1

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?

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?

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.

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.
