Here are some of my go-to verses. Take time to look them up and underline them if you haven’t already.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
..being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, And joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. Colossians 1:11-12
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right. 2 Thessalonians 3:13
As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:16
Reading through the Bible we see so many others felt exactly the way we do! They needed encouragement, too!
Take time to pray and ask God to show you someone in the Bible you can learn from. Someone you might not have thought of before.
If you STILL don’t want to open your Bible, check out Drivetime Devotions by Pastor Tom Holladay. Walk through one of the 10 minutes (ish) sessions with him. It’s a start. 🙂
What I learned today…The Bible constantly has something new to teach me. Even if it’s a verse I have read 1000 times.
