There are two things that get me through my day. My prayer journal and daily planner. I seriously don’t know how I’d get through life without them.
Beginning your day by suiting up with the armor of God is so incredibly important. It grounds you and completely puts your life and challenges in perspective.
Bathing yourself in God’s word equips you to handle whatever your day brings by reminding you that God is in control and absolutely nothing can destroy you, no matter how hard it is.
But what about throughout the day?
Do you run around like a crazy person then crawl into bed at night realizing that you never connected with God?

Your life is meant to be lived with Him in it.
You’re chasing after the kids, perhaps working outside of the home, driving them to practice after school, making dinner, and doing homework, and by the time you pour yourself into bed at night, you realize that you haven’t spoken to God since this morning – or at all for that matter!
God created you to be in fellowship with Him throughout the day. His intention was never for you to go through life on your own. He wants you to let Him in.
It takes practice, but when you seek Him, invite Him in and ask for His guidance, life truly does become so much easier. You’ll learn to find the joy that He has peppered throughout your day!
Life is hard
Life is just plain hard.
But the truth is, no matter how difficult it gets, it is possible to have both peace and pain at the very same time.
It’s in the storms where God shows you how strong you are, how capable you are, and that even in your difficulty, you can still find the beauty.
In order to find peace right in the middle of your pain, you’ve got to be rooted in God’s truth, and something that helps me remember is to have inspiration and scripture in front of me wherever I turn.
So today I thought I would I put together some of my favorite encouraging scriptures for you.
I’ve listed the scripture below, but I also made a FREE download so you can tuck them in your pocket and have them close when you need them most.
Simply sign-up below and I’ll send you the password to the FOI Community Library where you’ll find all my FREE resources.
Put them in a frame, tape them to your bathroom mirror or the dash of your car. Hang them in your work locker or at your desk.
In fact, share them with others to brighten their day!
Here are some of my favorite scripture that I use to help me in those tough times.
