#write31days: Truth to Hold On To

Yesterday, we took a look at the sources of discontentment in our lives. It is so important that we take a good hard look at what may be fueling our discontentment. There are so many sources of ugly that will just suck the life out of you. We want to receive life-giving words so that we in turn can give them away! The only way to do that is by immersing ourselves in the Word of God. His truth is what will never fade away. Social media numbers and the silly movies and television shows we "love" will fade away, but the truth of God's word will stand forever. Today, I want to share with you some verses that I cling to when I'm tempted to fall into a rut of jealousy and discontentment. I pray they encourage you, too. Please share any favorites you may have!

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. - Philippians 4:8

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. - Isaiah 26:3-4

O taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. - Psalm 34:8

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content... And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4: 12,19

That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original. - Galatians 5:26 (The Message)

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God. - Psalm 42:5
