Life is such a roller coaster! This was one of those days where all sorts of stressful things came into my path – you know the kinds of things that make your heart beat faster and blood pressure rise!! God reminded me of the things he taught me Sunday and peace returned to world. A friend posted the following verse on Facebook today and it hit me right between the eyes!
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Being strong and courageous…according to the dictionary, to be courageous is to be brave, fearless, bold, undaunted, unflinching, unshrinking, unafraid, stout-hearted, gutsy. What a TALL order and one that we are only able to achieve by drawing from the strength of Christ in us! Pray for me as I apply this verse to my life.
