Fall is here…summer is in the rear-view mirror.
School is here…so are practices, homework, carpools, old friends, new friends, meetings, games, concerts, temptations, late nights, jobs, tests, projects, expectations.
Church ministries are here…so are meetings, events, volunteer opportunities, small groups, new friends, old friends, busyness, temptations, expectations.
The devil is here…creating doubt, fear, pride, selfishness, cynicism, jealousy, arguments, compromise, hypocrisy, discouragement, expectations, busyness, temptations.
Be strong…God is here.
“Be strong and courageous…study this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed. I command you–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord you God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:6, 8-9 (NLT)
