Verses of the Bible for calming of the soul :)

Does anyone know Bible verses which can help you(r soul) with struggeling financial?
Dont know if I am to be for asking questions about it, because there are many, many people who struggle more than I on the world. But fact is, since I became a mother, my social status has been descending and since I became a single mother it became catastrophic.
I cant remember letting me go but I have a very unusual biography. So I have not been able to build up a solid foundation financially…
I fetched my high school diploma, I passed through a Bachelor study and actually have only a very small job (small income) and I am trying to get a Master degree as well…

I am tired! I didn`t take a vaccation for more than 20 (!!!) years.

I am trapped in a toxic circle of being a mother too early (without having finished a education with a certificate) and then become a single mother, which left me more destroyed financially than before.

I am shy and dont like to work for companies which I cant identify with. Also I have problems with getting in contact with people, its often too much for me…so I had to quit one job in the past…

I only work as private tutor and this is more a job for students age 18, than a single mother with 2 adolescent children…

Any ideas? I know I can read matthew, I love it, but are there more bible verses which could help me through?

I have to say I am a little bit ashamed to asking for help so regularly and answer on other postings seldom… sorry.

With all the load you’re carrying right now, Ann, no need to apologise for not making time to comment much on other’s posts. I remember a time in my life when I had to reach out a lot for help. It takes some humility and courage, especially if you are on the shy side.

In addition to Bible verses such as @1jewel has shared, I have found it most helpful to read certain accounts of fatih-based missions or ministries.

One I know was founded in Germany - If you click on the German flag top RH corner, it will take you to the German edition of the book, Realities. Also,

  • books by Amy Carmichael , missionary to India, such as Gold Cord

  • biographies of Hudson Taylor, missionary to China

,

  • the book by the Dutch evangelist, Brother Andrew, God’s Smuggler

Of course, God’s Word :bible:is all we need, and you may not have time :mantelpiece_clock: for much reading while caring for teenage children, plus studying and working.

Praying for you to experience God’s peace and His provision for your needs day by day.

I work as a tutor for a technical college and during covid shutdown we started tutoring online through Tutorocean.com It is an easy software to learn.
Anyone can sign up to tutor all over the world( I think) . I am not sure how the pay system is. PayPal or Venmo I think.
Hope that helps. I’ll pray for you also.
