Truths to Remember When Life Gets You Down
I don’t know about you, but I know I have some days in life that are harder than others. Even if it seems like nothing is going right, I’m missing home, or I’m worrying about what the future holds, I know I can always turn to God’s Word and hear from His heart.
In compiling this list of truths to remember, I wanted to share verses that have helped me focus on the goodness of God in my life and in the lives of every believer. I hope each of these biblical truths speak to you the way they’ve spoken to me.
