…so the thing is, today’s not your huge mountain to scale— 
your huge God is the mountain Who scales everything, so you see your problems as so small.

He’ll give you exactly what you need, He’ll make you strong for exactly what you have to do, and He’ll make you brave for exactly whatever you have to climb this week.

“You can be SURE that God will take care of everything you need” Phil4:19 

Thank God we are kept from what we wanted —
like escape, like an easier road, like an easier time of it…
and that He keeps giving us what we didn’t know we needed —
like more courage, like more joy, like more grace, like more of Himself.

Thank God we are kept from what we wanted — 
and He keeps giving us what we didn’t know we needed.

Because God will give you everything you need — all you need is to keep giving everything to Him!
