Life is hard, and trying to live life without the help of God makes it that much harder. God is capable of much more than we could ever imagine. My prayer is that you find strength in at least one of these verses and cling to it when you feel like giving up. God gave us these words to rely on and when we reflect on them, life becomes a little easier to handle. I promise, if you read these with an open heart, you will feel God's peace.

7. Romans 8:26-28

"The moment we get tired of waiting, God's spirit is along side, helping us. It doesn't matter how we pray—God knows us; better than ourselves. God works all things for the good of those who love Him."
