Look to God's word in Scripture when you're grieving a relationship.

January can be a strange time. People often have a desire to start the new year afresh. Sometimes that might lead to significant life decisions, such as choosing to end a relationship.

While these decisions might be for the best, they nonetheless often leave people heartbroken. And that’s a difficult way to kick off the new year.

To help put life in perspective, to find inner happiness and peace, it’s worth turning to Scripture for a little support and inspiration. So we’ve selected some great quotes from the Bible to help broken hearts feel a little less raw, and to help you remember that there’s always hope around the corner. Your Heavenly Father is always by your side, and who knows where your journey will lead!

Though my flesh and my heart fail, God is the rock of my heart, my portion forever.” Psalms 73:26

“Do not fear: I am with you; do not be anxious: I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely; In all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
