God is for me.

In my anxiety and worries, He embraces me with a love that holds no fear. The purest form of love there is, and a love I have immediate access to.

In my doubts, when I’m feeling like I’m not good enough or will never amount to anything, He reminds me that He isn’t even close to being done with me. He has more in store for me than I can imagine.

In my shame He lifts my chin and tells me I’m not my past, that I’ve been made new.

In my exhaustion He is my fortress, my hiding place to go find rest. He energizes my soul.

In my sin He shows up to gently remind me He created me for more than this. He gives me a way out.

In my grief He sits with me and places the broken pieces of my heart back together.

In every aspect of my life, He stands for me.

He remains despite my mistakes.
He isn’t disappointment in my doubts and fears.
He doesn’t run away at the sight of my sin and shortcomings.

He remains. Always.

He is for me.
He is for you, too.
