Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
I memorized this verse a very long time ago when I was teaching a Sunday school class for 1st graders. It’s a simple verse that even the kids could memorize.
How can a Bible verse help you in today’s world? If your hope is in Him, you know there will be a glorious day when all the pain ends. That’s literally what keeps me going every morning when I wake up.
I do not believe meditating on a Bible verse relieves chronic pain.
Every morning I’m usually in the same amount of pain when I wake up. It’s not easy to keep going, but my hope is not from this world. Knowing there will be an end to the pain gives me the hope I need to continue my life.
It is like a birth. You know at the end of the pain there will be a reward of a baby when it is over.
I choose to look at my salvation in that way also. Life is hard with physical and emotional pain. This world is not our world. We will feel pain of all kinds, but there is a reward much greater than we can imagine.
This verse helps me trust in God giving me peace so that I can focus on what is important, helping others, instead of worrying.
Do you have a Bible verse that carries you through hard times? Please share. It could encourage someone else. You never know the impact you can make by reaching out to help others.
Much Love and Many Prayers,
