When You hit rock bottom

All of us have been there! And for those who haven't, your time will come. All of us know what its like to be at our lowest point in life. Maybe we think we've hit rock bottom, only to have another rock being thrown our way. The rock will hit, and it will hit hard! The rock will hit so hard, that you have no
 one to rely on, except God Himself!
Just recently, my family and I watched a movie called, "Seasons of Gray". It's a modern day story of Joseph, in the Bible. It really made me think of how Joseph truly felt. He probably felt like God had abandoned him. He probably had doubts, fears, pain, and I'm sure he had to deal with forgiving his brothers. Joseph could have chosen to do so many things, but instead, he chose to let God rule his life. Surrendering isn't the
easiest thing to do. It's so easy to just give up the fight. I wonder what Joseph did and thought about
while he was in prison for something he didn't do... Did he question Gods motives? Did he accept his
life, knowing that Gods will was in all of this, and that God was trying to teach him something?
As far as Joseph knew, he'd die in Prison! There are so many things we can learn from in Joseph's life, as well as many others throughout the Bible.
We see in 2nd Corinthians 12:9, "...My Grace is sufficient for you,
 for My strength is made perfect in weakness."
Wow! Gods strength is made perfect in OUR weakness!
Here are a couple verses that I thought fit perfectly with our discussion.
"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."
~Galatians 6:9~
"I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and hear my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps..."
~Psalm 40:1-2~
What are some verses that have helped you when you've gone through a trial? What are some ways that you can encourage others who are going through a tough trial in their life right now?


  1. This was a beautiful post. :) For right now, I feel as though I am below rock bottom. Like, I am the bottom, and the rocks are pelting me. O.o The verse, Psalm 40:1-2, spoke to me. I will wait patiently for the Lord. He will steady me. And I know in time I will see his lesson, and know that the happenings around me, were and are, for a reason.

    Thank you for posting this. <3


    1. I'm glad you were blessed by this post Rose! May you know that God is faithful! You will get through whatever trial you're going through! And in the end, you will be blessed!!! :)

  2. Beautiful post! Yes, I have definitely been there, and yes, God is so faithful to meet us if when we fall to our knees. Thank you for sharing these truths!

    Happy Sunday!

    1. Thank you for commenting Sarah! Yes, may we fall to Jesus's feet when we hit rock bottom! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the encouraging message Caitlin! Those are wonderful verses. Psalms 23 and 91 are my favorite comforting verses for whenever I have trouble falling to sleep. When I have difficulties I like to think of Isaiah 49:15-16, "Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me." I also love verses in the New Testament where the Lord tells us he cares about us even more than a father cares for his child.

    1. Thank you for sharing those verses Bethany! What a blessing!!! :)

  4. This was so encouraging! God bless you! :)

  5. A few months ago, this was me, but through the grace of God (and only through His grace) was I able to pull through. Great post, very encouraging!
