25 Bible Verses for When You Feel Like You Can’t Do Anything Right

Learning to let God work through our mistakes & mishaps. Plus Five truths to remember & 25 Bible Verses for when you feel like you can't do anything right.

There are times when I feel like I can’t do anything right. Everything I touch crumbles, and it appears I’m incapable of getting it together. Mistakes, mishaps, and misses seem to be all I can muster up.

Maybe you’ve experienced periods like this too?

Whenever I find myself in a mistake-making-rut, feelings of worthlessness invade my thoughts, and before I know it, I’m tempted to quit and give up altogether. But then I remember I don’t have to let my mistakes define me. I’m a daughter of the King—created in Christ Jesus to do good things (Eph. 2:10).

God knows every step I’ll take before I take it. He isn’t surprised when I mess up, nor does he hold those things against me—God will use me for His glory despite my failures. For when I confess my sins (or admit that I can’t do this on my own), God is good to forgive, and when I seek His help, He generously gives it. And with God’s help, I’ll see my mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow.

Are you in a mistake-making rut? If you’re not in one now, chances are you’ve found yourself in a mistaking-making-rut at some point in your life. Here are Five Truths to Remember and 25 bible verses to reflect on when you feel like you can’t do anything right.
