Be Strong & Courageous

By Jenn Lewis


Recently, God has laid on my heart the following verse, especially regarding my family and my kids:

“Be STRONG and COURAGEOUS.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Both of my kids have some deeply rooted fears that I’ve been trying to uproot so that they could be set free.  But this verse has done more than any of my words ever could!

And then today, after a threat of violence at our local Middle School, I was able to share this exact same verse with several moms, who were afraid to send their kids to school.  I don’t know where these women are in their lives, but I trust that God will speak to them thru His word.

God always amazes me how He uses scripture to work in my life, and then directs me to use that exact same passage to help someone else.
