However, no matter how discouraged we may get, we don't need to go far to find some help and guidance. We need only turn to the Bible. Now, there are numerous Bible verses that offer encouragement for when times get tough, so it was hard to pick out only a select handful. There are hundreds more where these came from, but writing out an adequate list would take hours if not days to complete.

So, here are fifteen of the best Bible verses to help you get through life's rough patches.
