Looking for His guidance.


At my lowest, I feel so alone.

Psalm 25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses.
Psalm 25:18 Look upon my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
Romans 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers.
Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

At my lowest, I find depression.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.
Psalm 34:17 The righteous cry and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their trouble.
Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee.
Psalm 56:4 In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can anyone do to me?

Taking my eyes off of myself.

Psalm 119:37 Turn away my eyes from looking at vanity, and revive me in Thy ways.
Hebrews 12:2 Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Psalm 103:11 For as high as the Heavens are above the Earth, so great is His loving-kindness toward those who fear Him.
Psalm 9:10 Those who know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; for Thou, O Lord, has not forsaken those who seek Thee.
Psalm 9:9 The Lord also will be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.


Heavenly Father, we will look to the Lord “Our Stronghold” in times of trouble.
Humbly I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Please forward this so others may be blessed.
