Encouraging Bible Verses for the Struggling Mom

Hi there! Welcome to my little series called Encouraging Bible Verses.

When I was a teen, one of my besties, Rebecca, and I were inspired to start encouraging others with Bible verses. We had a great time getting together and choosing our favorites to share. We’d write each verse on about 50 cards, then mix them up and hand them out at school once a week to everyone in our youth group, plus some who weren’t. We did this for an entire school year.

I may have been one of the people writing out those verses for others, but I’m sure it impacted me more than my youth group. (Though there were stories of how those verses changed lives.) God’s word has this amazing way of growing me…but sharing God’s word is even more powerful. It has helped write God’s word on my heart, and made me want to hold on to it even tighter.

That simple act of passing around Bible verses stuck with me. I knew when I created this blog that I wanted to make my own “cards” to encourage you all. That’s the inspiration behind this series.


Well, guess what? Today my friend Rebecca is joining me, and I’m so excited to collaborate with her again! She wanted to share verses particularly for struggling mamas. We each dove right in, as believing moms who have been there before.

Because maybe you’re exhausted. Maybe your patience is wearing thin. Maybe you’re discouraged and losing hope.

I think most of us moms have been there…probably often in our lives as parents. If you are feeling down, worried, frustrated, or drained, we’re praying for you to be lifted up today as you trust in God.

Verses for the Struggling Mom


He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young.
Isaiah 40:11


It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.
Deuteronomy 31:8


Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7


Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8


I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31


If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
James 1:5


But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9



Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.”
Jeremiah 6:16


A generous person will prosper;
whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25


I hope you’re encouraged and inspired today as you take your burdens to God in exchange for some rest for your soul. He hears you, loves you, and has peace for you too.


Mamas, come get your daily bread. Parenting is tough, and God is here for us moms who are seriously struggling. Love these verses to help us look to God and trust in him.

    Thanks for these verses. I will use them and pass them to my daughter who also has two daughters and two broken relationships.

  2. Thank you for these verses and the lock screen! Love it. This is the last week of summer before our kids start school and I am feeling weary. These were a great encouragement to me today. Found you on the Salt & Light Linkup and glad I did.

  3. Good morning ladies,
    I am beyond the “mom of littles” years….I am the mom of “big people”. As mothers and people, we will always continue to struggle. These scriptures spoke to and ministered to my heart today. What a great collection to meditate upon. Thank you so much!
