Bible verses about encouragement are so important. As we go through hard times in life it is easy to feel overwhelmed. God has given us many encouraging scriptures to help us through those times. Even though the verses He gives us to encourage us don't change our situation they can help us change the way we see the problems we are going through. No matter what you are going through or what problems you are having you will find some helpful passages to get you through.
It is also important to remember that sometimes God calls us to be the one to help others through their tough times. Try to pay attention to what God might be asking you to do. If you are being asked to help someone with what they are dealing with then keep these verses in mind. Below you will find 10 verses. I'll list 5 popular passages, then 5 of my favorite encouragement passages.
