4 Phrases That Will Push You Through A Tough Time

You wake up - but you're not so sure it's gonna be a great day. Times are tough for you and you're uncertain things are going to work out. Is that where you are today? If so, I've got 5 phrases that will push you through your tough time.

Get these in your head. Get em in your heart. Write em out on an index card, post it note, or make them your screen saver on that techy smart-phone you have.

Here's your Push-Me-Through-A-Tough-Time List: 

  1. I CAN - Yes, say it like you mean it! Philipians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." There ya go. Whatever's required, you got it. Whatever it takes, it's in you.
  2. I WILL FINISH - You may have just started or you may started so long ago that you can't remember it. But it's not over. You're not over. Philipians 1:6 lets you know, God's going to finish what he started in you. You are finishing. Period.
  3. I WILL FIGURE THIS OUT - When confusion slaps you hard and you don't know how to solve your dilemna, hang on to 1 Corinthians 10:13. "All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it." (MSG). Your answer is on the way - it'll come to you.
  4. I WILL BE OK - You may not feel ok right now. You may have to swallow this over and over until you get it in your "knower". But I KNOW what Romans 8:28 says about you... All things will work out for good in your life because you love The Lord and you are pursuing him.

Ok, now with these 4 phrases, let's shape a prayer around them so you can keep pushing when you feel like quiting....

God, I need your strength to push me through this tough time. I've been on the edge and I've felt like quitting. But I'm pulling on your strength to get me around this corner. With you, I CAN do all the things that seem too hard for me. I've got what it takes, and I'm feeling a tinge of energy coming through me already. I WILL FINISH with you're help and direction. I know you are for me and want to see me succeed. I WILL FIGURE THIS OUT as you whisper answers in my ear and give me the ideas I need. I WILL BE OK because you said I will be ok. All things are working in my favor and I know you see me. Thank you that I'm not alone through this time. Thank you that you are rushing to my side and rescuing me. In Jesus Name.

Here’s a Pep-Talk From God if You’re Feeling Down

Down? Discouraged? Not sure which way to go or what to do next? Here's a little something that will lift your spirits. Let's call it a pep talk from God. Read this little post with a prayer and let him coach you toward victory. It's probably just what you need today to get you out of your funk.

Picture This:

You were feeling like a train wreck. Nothing seemed to be working for you. Tears were building up behind your eyes and the dam of emotion was just about to burst. You didn’t think you were going to make it, but then God got a hold of you and changed your mind!  A little talk did the trick. He gave you a new outlook and showed you how to see behind the clouds. He whispered some things that you’ve been eager to hear. Now you’re good, the little pep talk he gave you will help you carry on.

Scripture This:

Romans 15:4 NLT

Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.

Lamentations 3:24-26 MSG

God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,

his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.

They’re created new every morning.

How great your faithfulness!

I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).

He’s all I’ve got left.

Pray This:

God, remind me when I get down and can’t see my way up, to take a few minutes to consult with you. I know just a moment in your presence can change everything. My circumstances. My perspective. And certainly my outcome. I invite you to keep me on track. I need you to keep me focused. Coach me Lord, to the finish line.

Say This:

I just received a pep talk from God. When I read his word, he gives me the boost I need to carry on. Like a personal coach, he’s right there, pushing me toward victory. He calms me when I’m upset and he helps me see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m going to make it, he says so, and I believe every word.
