August's Verse of Encouragement 2016 + Free Printable

6:00:00 PM

As I mentioned in one of last month's blog posts, I have written a verse of encouragement in my planner for each month this year. If you missed last month's verse, you can check it out here!

This month's verse is Philippians 4:13.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

This has always been one of my favorite verses, even before I started this blog series. It's also one that I've needed to be reminded of this month. 

I know it's only the 5th of the month, but it's been a pretty rough week for me already. Due to some new symptoms and certain medications not working, my doctors have switched up my pill schedule and added a couple new prescriptions. This then led to me having to come off of my most helpful pain medication. Of course, with that comes the withdrawal symptoms. Mostly I've been struggling with migraines and an upset stomach, and I wouldn't wish this on anyone!

In addition to this, I've also got blood work and a CT scan planned for this month. We'll be scanning to see if my lung nodules have grown, in order to determine what we should do next. There's a history of lung cancer in my family and to be honest, I'm pretty scared. So, I've been hoping and praying that we get good news. Even if it looks like cancer, I just hope and pray that we catch it early! Unfortunately, my appointment to go over the results isn't until October :(

I think those are my two biggest worries for this month. So this verse couldn't have come at a better time! I've been reminded that God will be there through each of my battles and he will provide the strength I need to get through them, even if I might doubt that. Lucky for me, God loves me unconditionally and forgives me when I begin to lose faith. 

For those of you that need this reminder, or are simply looking for new art to hang on your walls, I have created a beautiful printout of this verse that I'd love to share with you! I hope that this verse brings comfort to you and really resonates in your heart!
