Feeling Defeated? Read and Memorize These Bible Verses!

Hi and welcome! It’s Wednesday, and I wanted to come on here and leave you with some midweek encouragement.

These past couple of weeks have been rather exhausting (mentally and emotionally). It got to a point when the feeling of defeat was hovering and surrounding me. “What did I do to deserve this?” I asked myself as I sat in my car on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, crying my eyes out. If I’m being candid, I was at a point where I was beginning to doubt that God was listening to my prayers. In that moment of distress, I felt myself slipping further into a pit of depression.

As I was sitting in my car, I reminded myself of my foundational Bible verse, Deuteronomy 31:6. It was tough for the words to leave my mouth, so I had to force myself to verbally speak the verse out loud. I didn’t believe what I was saying was true for a while, but after a few more shed tears and some self-reflection, I got out of my car, walked back into the house, and nervously pressed on with the day.

It’s Okay To Acknowledge How You Feel!

I want to encourage you today to acknowledge how you’re feeling. It’s okay to feel sad, depressed, angry. What’s not okay is dwelling on that feeling. When a negative feeling begins to take root in your mind, I want you to quickly acknowledge how and what you’re feeling. After doing that, do something to combat those feelings.

Here are a few things you can do when you’re feeling defeated:

  • Go for a walk
  • Pray
  • Meditate
  • Listen to some soft, soothing music
  • Read an encouraging book
  • Talk to a trusted friend or family member

All in all, do something that is going to help put you back on track.
