2 Timothy 4:17 “But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength.”
When I feel like giving up, when it seems to hard, when Satan is attacking me at every angle, this verse reminds me that God is on my side and He’s WAY bigger than Satan and any problem I'll face!
Psalm 73:26 “My health my fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.”
When I struggle with health issues and endometriosis pain, this verse reminds me that God is my strength and He will NOT fail me! Everything I go through will be used to glorify Him!
Romans 8:28 “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”
When I question why things are happening the way they are, I’m reminded that everything is happening for a reason we will come to see in time. God WILL use it to help others, if we are open and willing to endure and be molded like clay in the Potter’s Hands!
Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”
When I’m feeling impatient, I am reminded to pray and continue seeking God’s direction at every turn. I must keep faith that He has amazing things in store for my life!
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Proverbs 9:8 “Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise and they will love you.”
When people question, criticize, talk behind my back, or mock me, I’m reminded that “haters gonna hate.” Each person goes through their life making their own choices, based on their experiences, both current and past. I can’t control how someone feels. I can focus on helping those who want help and inspire others by sharing my story!
Romans 12:12 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

Matthew 6:34 “Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
When I start feeling worried and stressed, I’m reminded that I need to chill. Worrying robs today of its joy. I must focus only on what I can do in the moment. Tomorrow will take care of itself. God is in control!
