Are you filled with courage or fear?

Courage is catching, and so unfortunately, is fear. Both come in the face of adversity.

Courage, I believe, shows itself when we are mindful of God at every turn and respond in obedience to His instruction. No matter what comes, when we are focused on the Lord, we can step up, step out and do.

Fear is when our thoughts go haywire and negativity rules. Our response is to withdraw because we can't see any positive outcome. We can't see the Light in the midst of the darkness surrounding us.

Whisper His name
His Presence with you
Jesus, Jesus

Your strength lies in Him
The name of Jesus
The trauma within and around you will lessen
as you feel His Love
Experience His Joy
Bask in the Sonlight of His Peace

Be courageous in the face of fear. Don't allow stress to overtake you and cause more trouble.

Whisper His name
His Presence is with you
wherever you are

"Show me Your ways, O Lord;
Teach me Your paths,
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
for You are he God of my salvation;
on You I wait all the day."
 ~ Psalm 27:4-5

"Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!" ~ Psalm 105:4

"Let not your heart be troubled." ~ John 14:1
