Friday’s List To Live By #27

Today’s list comes from a piece I published several years ago,  but I think I got the idea from some anonymous article. If anyone knows the source, let me know and I will give them credit.

It encourages us not to listen to our negative, defeated and discouraged self talk, but rather  listen to God.  It’s entitled…


The hopeless says, “It’s impossible.”
God says, “All things are possible”. (Lk 18:27)

The weary says “I’m too tired.”
God says, ”I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28-30)

The broken-hearted says, “Nobody really loves me.”
God says, “I love you.” (Jn 3:16 )

The discouraged says, “I can’t go on.
“God says, “My grace is sufficient for you.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

The perplexed says, “I can’t figure things out.”
God says, “I will direct your steps.” (Pro 3:5-6)

The overwhelmed says, “I can’t do it.”
God says, “You can do all things” (Phil. 4:13)

The defeated says,  “I’m not able.”
God says, “I am able.” (II Cor. 9:8)

The quitter says, “It’s not worth it.”
God says, “Heaven will be worth it”. (Rom. 8:28 )

The guilt ridden says, “I can’t forgive myself.”
God says, “I forgive you.” (Rom. 8:1)

The impoverished says, “I can’t manage.”
God says, “I will supply all your needs.” (Phil, 4:19)

The cowardly says, “I’m afraid.”
God says, “I have not given you a spirit of fear. (II Tim 1:7)

The anxious says, “I’m worried.”
God says, “Cast all your cares on ME.”(I Pet.5:7)

The sinner says, “I’m lost!”
And God says, “I sent Jesus to die for you and save you.” (Rom 5:8).

    Ken, whoever penned the article truly knew God’s will in our lives. Thanks for sharing so that we can all be encouraged.

    I don’t know who penned this list, but it is certainly encouraging and above
    all “God and Bible centered”. A refreshing change from all the negativity
    the world throws at us especially in the media. Thanks for sharing
    this Ken! It has already helped me.
