You go, girl.
We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.
"She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future."
"God is within her, she will not fall."
"Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her."
"She is energetic and strong, a hard worker."
"The Lord is my strength and my shield."
"A gracious woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth."
"Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
"Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised."
"By the grace of God, I am what I am."
"When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness."
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."
"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline."
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'"
"The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm."
"You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way."
Next time you're feeling discouraged or weak, come back to these verses and use them to give you the strength and power that you need to conquer your battles.
