Candace Cameron Bure’s ‘Go-To’ Verses to ‘Focus on God When the Going Gets Tough’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Candace Cameron Bure recently took to Instagram to share some of her favorite Bible verses to turn to when life seems to be too overwhelming.

She captioned the video: 

I want to share a few of my go-to verses that help me focus on God particularly when the going gets tough. I camp my mind on what scripture says, meditate over it and redirect my thoughts to God’s word when I feel negative or down. 

There are a lot of hard things going on in the world. I’m not addressing anything in specific nor minimizing any tragedies. This little series of videos are simply to help you focus on the scriptures that help me hold my thoughts captive. 

Today’s scripture is Philippians 4:6-9.

“I wanted to give you some fighting words,” she started the video. “Some spiritual encouragement, straight from the word of God.”

She continued, “A lot of people ask me, especially when times are tough, whether we are struggling mentally or with relationships or at work, or just life, ‘Where do I go to in the Scriptures?’”

Bure then read Philippians 4:6-9:

6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (NIV)

“Bad things happen in the world,” she continued. “And I stay positive because I trust the word of God and He tells me to dwell on whatever is pure and lovely and righteous and honorable and praiseworthy. And that’s how I keep my mind positive, knowing that God’s hand is in control of everything. I trust that and I focus my mind on what is good and right.”
