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.
Fear becomes courage to help you hold on during the worst of emotional pain storms. Whether that storm is real or just in our thoughts, we need courage. Instead of being afraid of pain’s two-edged sword, physical and emotional pain, remember God can help you navigate your way out of the storm. He will take you safely through your storm. You’re not the first person that he’s led through the storm, but his love makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world he is leading. It is miraculous how he can lead each one of us through our struggles. Take courage my friend God loves you like you were his only child.
Key words: fear becomes courage, hold on, emotional pain storm, God will navigate, miraculous leading
