“Have I not commanded you? Be strong & courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
To me it means that with the Lord you have the courage and strength to get through anything.
There are times in my life were I am not sure what I am doing, were everything is going, when things are going to get better, and will I have enough money for gas, bills, and food for my kids. It is these times that I feel lost, abandoned, and on my own.
When feeling alone I can feel something pushing me forward; a force telling me to stay strong and not to be scared. A feeling of calm takes over. I not only have the best support system and a family that is willing to help out whenever I need it but the strength that God gives me to be courageous keeps me going from day to day. My troubles may not be as great as many people, but they seem even smaller when I have the Lord with me.
