Wherever you go…

2011 roma colisseum

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 1v9
Often discouraged
Frequently afraid
I don’t feel strong
My courage fails me at the slightest setback
Or stumbling block
Careless comments
Taken to heart

Lord, you have commanded me to be strong
To have courage
They say that courage is being fearful but doing the right thing anyway
Knowing you are with me
When I’m hanging on by my fingertips
It’s You I’m hanging on to

Joshua uncertain was called to lead your people
God commanded
He obeyed
May I hear your voice as clearly
You are with me.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
   And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
