Be strong and courageous

Be strong and courageous!  In the bible these words are found in ten different verses, four of which were in the first chapter of the book I just finished reading.  I think that God is trying to tell me something, what do you think?  But God, I don't feel strong and courageous, I feel weak and cowardly.  I know I need to have courage to say and do what God wants me to.  I need to have strength  and courage to endure the trials he lets my way.  I also need strength and courage to finish the bible in 90 days.  I know there will be setbacks, there will be trials, Satan will be there trying to push me away, but God says;

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

God will be with me wherever I go!  He will give me that strength, that courage.  I need to learn to STOP, PRAY, and then TALK!  God will give me the words when I tell someone about him, he will help me find the time to read, he will get me through the trials.  TOGETHER YOU AND I CAN BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS because God is with us wherever we go. 

Forever Changing,

  2. I just memorized that verse! It's a great reminder that we are never alone and that we do not need to be afraid. I hope you have a great week!
