The ups and downs of life happen to all of us, but how we respond makes all the difference. When we face hard things in life, our emotions can be overwhelming. It’s easy to get stuck in those emotions and doubt we can change. Regardless of what we are going through, God can help us get unstuck. And more than that, God can give us the faith we need to face any challenge and see it as he does—an opportunity to grow! Check out this video to learn how to use the Bible to get emotionally unstuck.
My soul weeps, and trouble weighs me down; give me strength so I can stand according to Your word.  Eliminate faithlessness You find in my step, be gracious, and give me Your guidance.  I have decided to take the path of faith; I have focused my eyes on Your regulations.
Psalm 119:28-30 Voice
Put up with hard times. God uses them to train you. He is treating you as his children. What children are not trained by their parents?  God trains all his children. But what if he doesn’t train you? Then you are not really his children. You are not God’s true sons and daughters at all.  Besides, we have all had human fathers who trained us. We respected them for it. How much more should we be trained by the Father of spirits and live!
Hebrews 12:7-9 NIrV
I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 NIV
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 NIV
 Our parents trained us for a little while. They did what they thought was best. But God trains us for our good. He does this so we may share in his holiness.  No training seems pleasant at the time. In fact, it seems painful. But later on it produces a harvest of godliness and peace. It does this for those who have been trained by it.
Hebrews 12:10-11 NIrV
 So put your hands to work. Strengthen your legs for the journey.  “Make level paths for your feet to walk on.”
Hebrews 12:12-13 NIrV
