10 Encouraging Bible Verses For Peace Of Mind During The Coronavirus Pandemic

 

Bible verses to learn during this COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at times. When you feel like things are spiraling out of control you need an encouraging word to bring back your peace of mind.

Perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed or confused about the recent world pandemic COVID-19?

If so, you are not alone. Coronavirus has impacted our lives across the globe in an interesting, yet frightening way.

We are more isolated by social distancing from one another and the fear of contracting this virus is real.

We have all had to uproar and change our lives within these last few months to ensure our health is protected.

As with anything in life, we all need encouragement, perhaps an encouraging verse from the Bible.

Encouragement found in scripture helps to give that extra motivation that helps us push through the worst times in our lives.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, prayers and reading the Bible will give us even more strength and encouragement to continue and to believe that this will all end soon.

We all want answers to why this is happening. We want to know when we will find a cure to save lives before more are lost.

But if we continue to encourage and help each other by applying to tools and information given to us by our governments, this too shall pass.

As we adjust to this new reality that we are facing, hearing words of hope and inspiration can help us feel more empowered.

As we adjust to the new norm of social distancing, words of encouragement and motivation will keep you in a peaceful mindset.

What are some of the struggles that you have endured during this recent outbreak? What are some of the feelings and emotions you have regarding the COVID-19 pandemic?

I know for me, I am hopeful that we will find a solution that will end this current world tragedy as soon as possible.

I am afraid of the lives of the human race — for all people, regardless of the country they are from.

I believe that this will impact lives to believe that life is short. When we finally do return to our regularly scheduled programs, I hope that people will begin to spread love and not hate.

Hopefully, we will be too busy enjoying the simple things in life that we have been deprived of during the COVID-19 …

25 Encouraging Quotes That Will Help You Make Peace & Let Go Of The Past

It’s time to move on.

Letting go is one of the hardest things to do, yet it is often the best decision we can make.

Whether in love or other relationships, we run into situations where we just have to let go and move on from whatever person or situation is holding us back. It’s not an easy road, but it’s necessary and worth it in the long run.

Maybe you realized it’s time to break up with your significant other or were dumped and just need to put the past behind you. Or maybe it’s just an incident that has been gnawing at you. Whatever the situation, you’ve decided it’s best to move on and focus on your future instead of dwelling on the past and repeating the same mistakes over and over again.


Picking apart your past  does not do us any good. In fact, it is harmful to our mental health and can result in low self-esteem, depression, and more. It’s easy to allow negativity, regret, and worry to take over our life, which is why it is essential to learn to let go and forgive yourself. There is a time to hold on and a time to let go; it’s up to you to decide what s best for you.

If you are struggling to let go of the past and find yourself stuck, it might be time to look for a little inspiration. A simple quote can be all you need to make that leap!


In order to help you, we have gathered 25 quotes to inspire you to let go.


1. Remember what really matters.

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” Buddha

2. Letting go does not necessarily mean you don’t love the other person.

“I think it’s time I let you go. And that’s so hand to do because a part of me will be in love with you for the rest of my life. But the day dreaming, the running in place, it’s not healthy. I can’t do that anymore.” — Unknown

3. Let go of what you can’t change.

“One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.” — Unknown

4. If it’s meant to be, it

25 Encouraging Quotes To Help You Get Through Your Breakup In One Piece

There are better things out there for you.

Breakups are hard. They are hard to accept and they are hard to move on from, especially if you were in love with this person.

When you are in love, you will feel like your heart is breaking or shattering into a million tiny pieces that you will never be able to move on from. Like there isn’t even enough glue in the world to put back together all the pieces. It’s hard, I know.

Even feel like you can’t even breathe or live without this person in your life, but you can.

You may even want to just lay in bed, not take a shower, and cry yourself out over a gallon of chocolate ice cream. But that’s OK to do at first if you need that. Everyone is different in how you cope with breakups. But don’t get stuck in that rut. You can move forward, don’t hold yourself responsible. Most likely, you are not the main reason.

When a breakup happens, it’s important to remind yourself that there are better things out there for you. You will find your happiness again and you will be happier with this new person.

Loneliness will only be your friend for a little while, to give yourself some time to emotionally heal from your heartbreak. It’s a good idea to not rebound fast after a breakup because you will be acting on your upset feelings and your need for love and attention, that you are not getting. But sometimes, it’s for the best to take some time for yourself and grow into who you are. Find out who you are post-relationship.

Remember, relationships come and go. You will find something better out there next time, so don’t feel like you have lost your one true love and not give yourself a chance at true happiness.

Here are some encouraging quotes to remind you that you are not alone and that you can get over this breakup stronger than you were before it.

1. Something better is out there for you.

“Something good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”Marilyn Monroe

2. No one can decrease your value.

“Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.”Unknown

3. You must pick up the pieces.

“You can break down a woman temporarily, but a real woman

25 Tough Love Quotes To Get You Through Anything Life Throws At You

We are all in need of a little tough love sometimes.

We all need a bit of tough love.

Whether it is coming from your best friend who is worried about your current relationship, or your boss who is concerned about your work performance. Sometimes tough love is the push we need to get our butts into gear and take back control of our lives.

A lot of the time, we think of tough love as a negative thing – who wants someone they’re super close to telling them that they need to do better?

Instead of viewing tough love and criticism as a bad thing, look at it as an eye opener.

The people you surround yourself with and that love you the most feel that your life is slipping away and want to help you realize it before it is too late.

Tough love forces us to take responsibility for our actions; it can literally save lives when it comes to those suffering from addiction issues or mental health problems. Tough love can also help us with simple, daily tasks that we are just too lazy to get done. When your mom tells you she isn’t letting you go out for the night wtih your friends until you clean your room and finish your homework, that is tough love!

We all need it from time to time. Your best friends and family will be the ones throwing tough love your way and it is important to take it to heart – unless you really don’t agree, then it is time for a sit down chat about how you all feel.

Regardless of the tough love you receive, here are 25 tough love quotes about how important being tough with the people we love is and the humor that can surround it sometimes. There are also some quotes thrown in there that maybe you need to hear right now. If there isn’t a person in your life giving you the tough love you need, consider me that person now!

We have all either been the person receiving or giving the tough love, right?

1. Receiving tough love is never easy, especially when you know the person is right

“I’m not telling you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it is going to be worth it” Unknown

2. And ain’t that the truth

21 Encouraging & Uplifting Quotes To Get You Back On Your Feet When You've Hit Rock Bottom

Wipe off the dirt and start climbing.

Hitting rock bottom is one of the hardest things for me to describe. Our own “hitting rock bottom” moments are things we all tend to talk about a lot because they’re what shape us into the people we become.

So I entertain this idea of rock bottom in my mind, trying to put into words exactly how being at rock bottom feels. The best definition I’ve been able to think of is just this: You know it when you feel it. 

It’s the feeling you get when things are going wrong all around you, and life feels chaotic — even hopeless. You’re losing drive, motivation and the ability to think clearly. 

To me, hitting rock bottom kind of feels like a roller coaster you can’t get off of. Of course, to make things worse, the roller coaster is underwater, so it’s really only a matter of time before you can’t hold your breath any longer. You drown under the pressure. In short, it sucks. 

The real question, though, is how do you take those feelings and channel them into something positive? How do you build yourself back up from rock bottom? How do you make it back to the surface? 

Even starting to think about these things feels overwhelming when you’re there. So here are 21 uplifting quotes to prove to you that life after reaching rock bottom really is possible. 

1. You will get through this and be stronger for it.

“When you have hit rock bottom and survived, there are very few things that can scare you.”  — Unknown

2. You will rebuild.

Never be afraid to fall apart. It represents an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wished you’d been all along.” — ​Rae Smith

3. Rock bottom? More like rock solid. 

“Bottom became the solid foundation on which I built my life.” — JK Rowling

4. Find comfort in the people around you.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”– Mother Teresa

5. This isn’t your forever.

“Hitting rock bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there.”  — Michelle Parsons

6. Find your paradox.

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.” – Mother Teresa

7. You will grow from this.

“Strength

40 Words Of Encouragement To Help You Get Through Even The Toughest Days

You can do this.

At one point or another in life, everyone reaches a point where everything becomes a little too much and it seems impossible to go on. You become lost in the haze of bad days and sleepless nights. You struggle to remember who you were before the event that changed you for the worse and even after the dust settles, you don’t know if you’ll ever be as happy as you were before it happened.

With each bad thing that life throws at you, you think to yourself “at least this is as bad as it’s ever going to get.” But flash forward a few days, weeks, months, or years and life throws you an even bigger curveball.

While you may feel the urge to punch a wall or scream into the void, you have no choice but to make it through. It’s unfair and the world is a cruel place but there’s comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. It’s a part of life and we must learn to overcome the struggles we face over the years.


Everyone has their specialties when comforting friends. Some are listeners; they can empathize and react in a way that shows they care. Others are talkers; they can say exactly what the person needs to hear. It takes a special someone to be both.

But where someone struggles to find the right words, another has already said them. Where one struggles to understand what someone is going through, another has gone through it themselves.

Words of encouragement are not only for the struggling; they are also for the successful. Everyone reaches a point where they need to be humbled or they need to remember where they came from. Here is how you help them, and yourself: by looking back at those who have felt the same profound sadness or confusion that you have. These people have been put down and defeated but they are still here, even if only through their words, to tell the tale. They made it, and so will you.


So when you feel like life is too much and need some inspiration to go on, look to these 40 quotes of encouragement to get you through even the toughest days.


1. Make the most out of what you have.

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

30 Honest Friendship Quotes Everyone Who's Fought With Their Best Friend Can Relate To

Text your best friend one of these quotes and feel the love they give you back.

Friends are important, but best friends are even more so. They are special to us and encouraging our BFF’s through positive and encouraging quotes is a great way to show them how much they mean to us.

Friendships are important for social and mental health but best friends hold even more value in your life.

Best friends are harder to come by, but when you do find one, they make such a meaningful impact on your life and you wonder how you ever lived without them.


Most of the time best friends become family, which is one major way they differ from regular friends.

Life throws curve-balls at you all the time, but a life without a best friend would make any inconvenience or struggle much harder. They support you no matter what and always look out for your health and safety. Likewise, you are always there for their health and well being too.

Since best friends are so rare, most people have more regular friends than they do best friends.

Sometimes people only have one best friend and to be honest, one is all you need.

The more best friends you have, the more you have to question if they are a true best friend or just a friend. You will always come to find out — or immediately know — who your best friends are and how to set them apart from regular friends.


They say that the friendships you have that last longer than seven years are more likely to last a lifetime and best friends surely fit into this saying like a puzzle piece. Encouraging your bestie  — and vice-versa — is what this friendship connection is all about, so here are some quotes to share with your best friend. Even during the difficult times in your friendship, sharing one of the more serious quotes from below can help ease the situation, as it is natural for some conflict to arise in friendships.

Read on and use some of these positive quotes to help encourage a best friend, whether it be a difficult time for your bestie or to thank them for all that they do. 


1. Acceptance is key.

“A true friend accepts who you are, but also helps you become who you should be.” —​ Unknown
