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
03/31/09 Volcanoes erupt. Flood waters rise. Missiles are pointed at us. Foreclosures are on the rise. The world economy is collapsing. The job market plummets. The stock market is behaving like a roller coaster. All of the news seems bad. Terrorism is eerily silent. Guess what? God is right in the middle of all of this. Our God is with us. And He has some very specific instructions for us: Be strong. Be courageous. Don’t be terrified. Don’t be discouraged. And He will empower us to do all of these things. We are not alone. And if we feel alone, He is just a prayer away. Turn back to Him. Hold on tight. Let your Daddy carry you through the toughest of times. He is strong and courageous. He is not terrified or discouraged. He is our shelter and He loves us deeply.
