Are you feeling discouraged as a police wife?  These are the best scriptures for police wives, organized by the issue you’re dealing with right now.

I love reading the scriptures when I’m having a hard time.  I actually try to read them daily, and I’m getting better about the habit, even if I’m not perfect.  My days go way more smoothly when I make time for scripture reading in the morning, though, so that helps encourage me to make it a priority.

If you’re feeling discouraged, the word of God is a great way to help you focus on what matters most.  These are some of the best scriptures for police wives, and I’ve organized them by topic to hopefully make this a super useful resource!

While these verses are an excellent starting point, I definitely recommend cracking open your personal bible (or open up a bible app :)) and reading for yourself.  You never know what verses are going to hit you when, and God is best qualified to understand what you’re going through and give you the direction and comfort you need most.

In any case, I hope these helped you! 🙂
