A night not too long ago, I struggled to calm down enough to go to sleep. My mind filled with reasons to feel hurt, get worried, or stay focused on my problems. I made a conscious decision to stop thinking of those troubles and instead put on some calm music while I read Bible verses for peace.
As I took in God’s Word, my worries, anger, and anxiety began to fall away. His Word reminded me of how big He is and how much He loves me. It was enough to change my attitude and let me fall asleep.
I am not sure what you are struggling with today, but God can help You! Read these Bible verses for peace that can only come from the Lord.
