Here are a few to get started!

The book of Psalms is full of uplifting verses. Here are some psalms that might help you with something you’re struggling with!

1. Do the actions of other people ever cause you concern?
“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?” (Psalm 118:6)

2. Do you need help overcoming fear?
“I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4).

3. Does the world seem scary at times?
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).

4. Do you feel broken in body or spirit?
“O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me” (Psalm 30:2).
