"Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)

Sometimes, Lord, I am discouraged.  I know I shouldn't be, for your word promises that you will never fail me.  Sometimes, though, when I get to the end of my rope, I am afraid.  I feel lost and alone and under this heavy burden.  I know that this time is only temporary, but I feel so weak...so vulnerable.  Strengthen me, Lord!  Give me the courage and wisdom and stamina that I need.  I am feeling worn down, but I am trusting you!

In Jesus' precious name,

  1. He is your Strength, your Hiding Place, your Refuge, your Safe Harbor. Joan, I am reminding myself of all that God is for us every moment of every day by saying these things to you for I get discouraged, down, overwhelmed. I forget that He is right here for me, always.
    May He hold You near and gently in these days.
    Caring through Christ, ~ linda

  2. I am so thankful for all God is and for all He does. He is always there, ready to comfort, strengthen and lift up. What a blessing!
