7 Soothing Promises to Comfort the Discouraged Heart

It’s been one of those weeks.

Maybe for you too?

Everyone faces feelings of discouragement and disappointment at times in life. We all need to hear, read, and ponder positive words, quotes, and Bible verses that will inspire us to keep moving forward. Here is a post filled with these words!

My heart has been through a myriad of emotions this past week.

Discomfort.

Disappointment.

Discouragement.

Delight.

And, everything in between.

We ALL face seasons when our “hearts” grow weary.

Discouragement can threaten each of us.

I don’t know any of God’s children who don’t sometimes need to hear a good word.

A word of comfort.

A word of hope.

A word of reminder.

A word that soothes.

I know I do!

And, I’m guessing you do as well.

So, I offer these wonderful promises from God’s Word to you today.  I am praying you will be encouraged and comforted as you read.

Soothing Promise Seven

It’s a great way to pray for someone you love!

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”   (Ephesians 3:16-19, NLT)
