He is with us, our refuge and strength. Faithful, forever. Even in the darkest night of the soul, there is always a song to sing.

Bible Passages

"Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?...Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble." | Matthew 6:26,34 (NIV)

"Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy." | Psalm 94:17-19 (NIV) 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 
— Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." | Romans 8:26-28 (NLT) 

"Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad." | Proverbs 12:25 (NIV) 

"Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved." | Psalm 55:22 (NIV) 


Quotes

"Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday." | Dale Carnegie

"If we have not quiet in our minds, outward comfort will do no more for us than a golden slipper on a gouty foot." | John Bunyan

Anxiety is the natural result when our hopes are centered in anything short of God and His will for us.
— Billy Graham

"Knowing that God is faithful, it really helps me to not be captivated by worry. But knowing that He will do what He has said, He will cause it to happen, whatever He has promised, and then it causes me to be less involved in worrying about a situation." | Josh McDowell

"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength." | Corrie Ten Boom

"Worry is the sin of distrusting the promise and providence of God, and yet it is a sin that Christians commit perhaps more frequently than any other." | John MacArthur

"I would go to the deeps a hundred times to cheer a downcast spirit. It is good for me to have been afflicted, that I might know how to speak a word in season to one that is weary." | Charles Spurgeon
