Bible verses about tough times are encouraging; however, Believing God’s Promises Even When It’s Hard can be challenging. I have created a study to help you retrain your mind to think in ways that will bring you positive emotions and, therefore, positive actions based on God’s Word.
TRUSTING GOD IN DIFFICULT TIME
Life rarely goes the way we plan and hope for. Financial stability can be shaken, diagnosis for diseases are given, death of those we love happens, children have problems we can not solve for them and so on goes the list of what we can not control.
Sometimes these challenging circumstances may cause us to doubt God’s good purpose for everything he ordains.
We need to learn how to apply God’s Word to our lives, so we get results in our actions. I have created a bible study using bible verses about tough times to help you do just that!

In the midst of trials and suffering, God calls out for us to come to himself filling our minds with his Word to direct our thoughts and emotions and the actions we take.

We are humans, and it takes deliberate action on our part to learn and apply the scriptures to our daily walk. This free printable bible study will help you train your mind to apply the Word in all your circumstances.
