Challenge

Engraft this verse:

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.


It actually works. I didn't realize until a few days later. I wasn't even trying to memorize this or meditate on it. I emailed it to a friend and therefore was thinking about it, then I realized that the last few days God has actually been helping ME to be strong and courageous! It's so amazing! God's Word does powerful things in our lives even when we don't realize it!

See for yourself!

Hi Marissa,

What's up? How is your grandpa doing? Sorry I haven't kept in touch for awhile, busy with school and a lot of other things.
That verse has encouraged me numerous times...I actually have it on a dogtag attached to my keys and it is such a good reminder to be brave and courageous.

Becky! I'm so sorry I haven't replied to your email! I keep forgetting. I'm so bad at emailing. :( I will get to it soon!

My grandpa's doing better as of right now. Thanks for asking! I'm glad Joshua 1:9 is an encouragement to you, too! I just love it. I should tell you the whole story sometime. Anyway... I WILL get to your email!
