Good Morning My Loves,
I would like to start off today with Joshua 1:9 which says, “Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the LORD they GOD is with thee wherever you may go.” I’ve had to tell myself this many days. Some days can be difficult and trying to say the least. It’s hard not to focus on the storm and chaos. Why focus on such a thing when He who created the heavens and the earth says to focus on Him? Being strong when you have no strength is one of the hardest things to do. However, I’ve learned when all you have left is your strength you can move mountains.
We so often try to take matters into our own hands. Stressing and worrying how to figure it all out. Psalms 55:22 says, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” We have the Savior of the world on our side. If we seek His help and follow His directions how can we fail? God’s will can open doors no man can shut and close doors no man can open. Fear not, be not afraid. Courage is not found in the absence of fear but in the presence of God. Let go of fear, it will cripple you, instead embrace courage it will restore what you have lost and claim all the good things the future holds for you.
God grant me courage and hope for everyday, faith to guide me along my way, understanding and wisdom, too, and grace to accept what life gives me to do-Helen Stringer Rice. Go out today with and face this world filled with courage. Just know that whatever trials may come you are not alone for God is with you. Be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. Not only do you possess courage, there lies greatness too. Always remember somewhere deep inside….Great Is In You!
