Joshua 1:9 - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Emotional pain caused by the actions of others can linger if we’re not careful. One of the reasons why it sticks around is because you don’t deal with the source of your pain.
