7 Scriptures to Encourage the Weary Soul

Do you ever feel that life is pulling you in a hundred different directions.  The needs of your loved ones, work, ministry or school weigh heavy on your shoulders.  Life is filled with many happy moments, many fun adventures and beautiful memories. However, in the day-to-day mundane tasks of life our souls can grow weary.  We will have bad days, but bad days do not need to turn into bad weeks and bad months.

We wanted to share a list of 7 scriptures that renew our spirits and bring encouragement to us when our souls become weary.  So whether you are nursing a newborn, chasing around active toddlers, carpooling your kids all over the place, working double shifts,   deep in books studying for a degree or just having a bad day, we hope that this list will bring you some encouragement!

if we do not give up.”
