No matter how big the mountain seems, remember that God is going before you and loves you more than you could ever know.
God gave us His Word, knowing how much it would help us in every season of our lives. We hope that these uplifting verses will bring you peace and refresh your spirit today.
1. Isaiah 46:4
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and arry you I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
God thoughtfully crafted you—every single thing that makes you who you are was carefully chosen and knitted together by Him.
He knows exactly what you need before you need it, and He will sustain you in all that He has called you to do.
2. Exodus 15:2
The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him.

In all that you do, He will carry you.
3. Matthew 6:33

God is always ready and waiting for you to pursue Him. No matter how challenging you feel this season is, His love for you is far greater.
Seek His kingdom, and He will welcome you with open arms.
4. Isaiah 40:31
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.

7. 1 Corinthians 13:13

When we surrender our troubles to God, we are able to live with an abundance of faith, hope and love that can only come from Him.
8. Psalm 46:10
He says, "Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
God's voice is a comfort to all who hear it. Sometimes all it takes to feel His presence is a few moments of silence and stillness.
9. Psalm 63:1
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

No matter how far away He may feel, remember that He is right beside you—not just in this moment, but every moment.

God loves us so much more than we can possibly comprehend. He is good to us in every season and has compassion for us regardless of what we have done.

11. Isaiah 43:2
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
God is our protector. He goes before us and fights our battles with us.
He has already won.
We are so thankful for you. God has a beautiful plan for your life and will sustain you through every step of the journey.
