We all have times when it seems life is too hard and just doesn’t make sense.  The following quotes from Scripture address these time–I hope they bless you.  Be sure to watch the  video at the end for more comfort and encouragement.
Take heart–God is in control and He holds you in the palm of His hand.
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)

 “I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”John 14:27 (NLT)

The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life–
of whom shall I be afraid?

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 (NLT)

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NLT)

“Dear Lord,
My fear has trapped and consumed me. But I am tired of living under the weight of my fears. These
verses reassure me of your presence and confirm that you are able to deliver me from my trouble.
Please give me your love and your power to replace these fears. Your perfect love casts out my fear.
I thank you for promising to give me the peace that only you can give. I receive that peace now as I
ask you to still my troubled heart. Because you are with me, I don’t have to be afraid.
Amen”

“I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27 (NLT)
