There are those days – you know, where it seems from ten minutes after you get up, things begin to fall apart. That was my day yesterday.
So, after I beat myself up a bit – I know I am not alone in this – I decided to focus my energy on picking out what God has to say about grace and His love and mercy. Just so I could fight back with some ammunition.
I wanted to share these uplifting Bible verses, as I know other moms struggle with bad days – days when we feel we can’t do a thing right, when we aren’t good enough, and the list goes on – but we must STOP those thoughts. You need to control your mind and allow it to be filled with His mighty words.
Here are 12 uplifting Bible verses for you to meditate on during the hard days:

I am working to reverse years of damaged thinking and emotions. It will not happen overnight, however God is here in the midst of it all – and I can focus on HIS amazing Grace! And it never hurts to put a little Peace & Calming or Joy in the diffuser either!
