Woke up several times this morning and thought "rest". So, I rested and rested and then I heard Joshua 1:9, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified. Do not be DISCOURAGED, for the Lord is with you wherever you go."
It is a command... do NOT be discouraged. I thought about it and about the fact that we shouldn't discourage others either, but encourage. Then I thought about discouragement causes hopelessness and hope deferred makes the heart sick......but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. (Proverbs 13:12).
Lord, Thank you. I want to be courageous and not discouraged or discouraging to others. Help the girls to get it as well. :)
