10 Verses For When You Feel Blah

 

pine-3116612_1280

Do you ever just feel blah? Like you’re not sick, you’re not sleepy, but you just don’t feel right. Like your day or your life has turned to gray scale. Your not depressed, but you’re not excited about life anymore. It’s just one of those days or weeks.

I think it is safe to say that everyone gets to feeling like this at some point. Sometimes it just lasts a day, other times longer. If we don’t take some kind of action, it can lead to discouragement, depression. It can also start affecting our relationships, our jobs and our relationship with God.

No matter how you feel, God hasn’t moved away from you and hasn’t given up on you. Don’t think like this. If you do you are giving the enemy a foothold. You need to pray, seek God and even do some praising. That always gives me a fresh boost.

Once again we need to go to His word. To see what we can find to lift us up, encourage us. Light a spark in us once again. To defeat the enemy. Again. So here we go.

God will sing over you!

The lord you God in your midst,

the Mighty One will save;

He will rejoice over you with gladness,

He will quiet you with His love,

He will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

Jesus prayed specifically for you.

I do not pray for these alone,

but also for those who will believe in me

through their words;

that they may all be one

as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You;

that they also may be one in Us,

that the world may believe that You sent Me.

John 17:20-21

God has your name inscribed (tattooed) on His hand.

Yet I will not forget you.

See, I have inscribed you on

palms of My hands.

Isaiah 49:15b-16a

God will never take away His kindness from you.

For the mountains shall depart

and the hills be removed,

but My kindness shall not depart from you,

nor shall my covenant of peace be removed.

Isaiah 54:10

Jesus is all you need.

And Jesus said to them,

I am the bread of life.

He who comes to me shall never hunger

and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

John 6:35

The Lord is a light to us.

Therefore I will look to the Lord;

I will wait for the God of my salvation;

my God will hear me.

Do not rejoice over me, my enemy;

when I fall, I will arise;

when I sit in darkness,

the Lord will be a light for me.

Micah 7:7-8

Even in your sleep, He will help you.

When you lie down,

you will not be afraid;

yes, you will lie down

and your sleep will be sweet.

Proverbs 3:24

Times for laughing and praising will return.

He will yet fill your mouth with laughing

and your lips with rejoicing.

Job 8:21

There is no place physically, mentally or spiritually that we could go and God would not be there with us.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?

If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.

Psalm 139:7-10

Don’t give up!

And let us not grow weary

while doing good,

for in due season we shall reap,

if we do not lose heart.

Galatians 6:9

Now these might seem pretty random verses, but I feel like every person who reads this will find something for themselves in at least one of these verses. Let me know if one of these speaks to you.

Until next time,God bless.

  1. Galatians 6:9 is one verse I can imagine our Lord was praying while in the Garden of Gethsemane. Not only did He not loose heart, He did not forsake His Father in Heaven. Jesus concluded by saying, “Not my will, but thine be done!” I know we are not Jesus, but if we use His words and mean them when we feel forlorn, that’s enough. So, keep ‘holdingontojesus’ my sister and everything will be alright.

    • Thank you for commenting. If we are believers then we cannot give in to the blah days. That is one reason I did include Galatians 6:9. We have to keep trying, keep moving forward, no matter if our day is blah. Blessings.
