6 Verses to Encourage You During Difficult Times

Our journey traverses difficult roads. In addition to providing us insights to God, Scripture is a source of encouragement. We know life is wrought with challenges. Having a tool like the Bible helps us navigate choppy waters. You and I need a dose of encouragement every now and then.

Here are 6 of my favorite verses serving as a source of hope and inspiration in moments when I’m facing uncertainty and battling fear along with a host of other emotions. My prayer is that you will find them to be of value to you too.
