Strong and Courageous

Life is hard sometimes—   

crazy, mixed-up, messed up.   

In the middle of it all,   

the challenge is to focus   

on the things that don’t change...   

the purposes, promises,  

and character of God.  

As we draw strength  

from his unchanging ways,   

our response to this messy world  

will attract attention.  

Being filled with peace and   

strong in God’s power in a shaky world   

sets us apart, giving opportunities   

to point others to the source of our hope.   


thank you for giving me   

all that I need to make it through.   

I will trust your resources and   

freely let the world see   

where my strength comes from.  


Today’s Reading: Psalm 31:24 NLT 

So be strong and courageous, 
    all you who put your hope in the Lord!
