Devotional: What To Do When You Are Struggling

What To Do When You Are Struggling❤️

Verse: ‘Sing the praises of the Lord , you his faithful people; praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. ‘

Psalm 30:4-5

I have some amazing news everyone: for the last two weeks my pain has gotten SO much better and has stayed better! Praise God! What has made my pain better was some pain medicines I have been taking. Praise Jesus! I am not pain free but my pain is SO much better. My pain is manageable and I love it! Thank you for all of you who have been praying for me, I am so happy to say I am better!

Maybe right now, you are struggling. Maybe you are struggling with work, school, chronic illness, mental illness, cancer, or you lost a loved one. No matter what you are going through: you can and will get through this. You may struggle but God will grab your hand and help you through this.

In this world, God knew we would struggle and have trials. But He has overcome the world and will help you overcome whatever you are going through. (John 16:31-33) God knew we would struggle but God’s joy, peace, love, and mercy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:4-5) You may struggle, you may fall, but God will uphold you with His right hand. (Psalm 37:23-24) God will help you and always be there for you. (Psalm 121:1-2) God will never leave you. (Hebrews 13:5) God will comfort you. (Isaiah 49:13)

You can and will get through this. Whatever your “this” is, you can get through it with God on your side. God will grab your hand and help you through this. You don’t have to give up. God will give you His strength, His joy, His peace, His comfort, His love, His encourage, His grace, His mercy, and everything you need to fight this battle.

I have struggled for two years with my pain and though sometimes I really wanted to give up. God gave me the strength to keep going. God will do the same for you. No matter what mountain you are facing: you can climb it with God on your side. With God on your side, you can do anything!

Don’t turn away from God when you are struggling. Turn to God and let Him help you through this. It’s really easy to want to run away from God when you are struggling. But instead press into God: read His word, pray, and listen for Him.

I know life is tough but God is tough.

God is good even when life isn’t.

Keep going and never give up!


Dear God,

I am struggling right now. But instead of turning away from you, I am turning towards you. I pray you give me everything I need to fight this battle with you on my side. Please grab my hand and help me through this. Because with you Lord, I know I can do all things. I know I can overcome this storm with you Lord because you are greater, stronger, and mightier than anything I will ever face. You are good even when life isn’t. So grab my hand, and let’s do this!

I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!

I hope you enjoyed! I love you all❤️
