Bible Scriptures For Life Storms

We all go through life storms rather if it’s an actual tropical storm headed your way and you have to take precautions, or if you feel like your life is falling apart. Many of us face huge obstacles that come our way. It could be a work related problem, health issues, finance problems, relationship issues, or a family crisis. Whatever it is we can get to the point of feeling trapped, like there is no way out. We may even question why am I going through this? Our faith can be tested so much that we even question God. It’s normal to feel depressed and clueless on how things will get better. You might not think this, but when you hit rock bottom there is only one way to go and that’s up. God just wants you to call out to him during this time so he can help you put the pieces back together.

 

I have hit rock bottom more that once in my lifetime and I needed some kind of encouragement. I needed to feel peace in my huge storm of problems. That is why I am listing some scriptures that are perfect to reflect on. Go to your quiet place, wherever that may be, and read these. Meditate on what God is saying to you.

 

I have read some of these bible scriptures many times. Anytime I’m going through something and I come back to the bible verses and I get something different out of it that I didn’t get before.

 

Bible Scriptures

Ecclesiastes 3:1– “Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.”

Isaiah 43:1-2– “Do not be afraid I will save you. I have called you by name you are mine. When you pass through deep water, I will be with you.”

Isaiah 26:3– ” You, Lord, give perfect peace to those who keep their purpose firm and put their trust in you.”

John 14:26-27– “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you, peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

Psalm 34:17-18-The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10;But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

1 Peter 4:12-13-Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in as much as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.”

 

Remember that no storm lasts forever.

DIY Sliding Barn Door

When we moved into our new house last year I picked out the room that I wanted to be my office. It is a formal dining room with a built in cabinet and an open doorway that is 50” wide. With all the noise and distractions in our house, I was in desperate need of a door. A normal door would not fit so I started doing a little research. I will eventually style our home in a farmhouse chic style, and I found exactly what I wanted. A sliding barn door would fit perfectly! I searched around and the door I wanted was over 600 dollars. This did not include installation or the mounting bracket and hardware. This was going to cost us over 1000 dollars! We put our DIY thinking caps on and figured out an inexpensive, beautiful way, to build it ourselves. We learned a lot during this project and hopefully you will learn from our mistakes and your install will go flawlessly.

Resort Attire

We recently got back from a resort in Jamaica. It never fails that it comes the time to pack and I’m indecisive on what to bring. I wanted to show you some great options that have been perfect for me to wear to a resort.

What To Wear For A Resort

This black and white jumper is perfect to wear to a resort. You don’t always know what the restaurants will be like at the resort, so this is a great option to wear. It’s not dressy, but it’s not very casual either. I normally try to stay away from stripes just because it can make you look bigger than you are, but the black on this jumper seems to slim you down and is very flattering.

Does All Inclusive Really Mean All Inclusive?

We recently went to an all inclusive resort for our anniversary. We had contemplated for weeks on where we would go and what resort we would stay at. We knew it had to be by beautiful blue water. We did a lot of research and we read a lot of reviews. I don’t know what exactly was the deciding factor, but in just a blink of an eye my husband knew where we would be going for our first out of the country trip that we took together. Let me say this right at the beginning, we did not receive any compensation for this trip. Everything we say about Jamaica and the resort is 100% genuine, and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

DIY Entryway Bench and Organizer For Shoes

As soon as we enter our house we take off our shoes. Everyone that visits us does the same thing. The thing about taking off your shoes is that it can look very messy when you don’t have a place to put them.

 

I have been wanting a bench forever now and I just never could find one that I liked enough and that is not too expensive. That is why I made my own. I worked with a company called Snap Fence. They have a huge variety of different size pieces to work with. The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating your own DIY project.

I’m No Longer a Prisoner

Yes, I was once a prisoner. You are probably thinking why haven’t I told you this before. Well, first off I’m speaking metaphorically. I was emotionally imprisoned. Anger, shame, bitterness, and unforgivness all kept me from being completely free.

 

I kept my past emotionally buried in hopes that I could go on with life like that. I thought that I could just erase it from my memory and it would be like it never happened. This worked for a while but I was fading away. I would have things happen that would trigger anger and fear and I didn’t know why.
