Today take comfort in God’s Word. 1 Corinthians 16:13 remind us to be strong and brave, and to always stand on God’s truth.
One of the simplest memorials, yet most profound, is inscribed on the monument of Lord Lawrence at Westminster Abbey. Along with his name and the date of his death, the inscription reads, “He feared man so little because He feared God so much.”
Find courage in your Creator
Today: Be Strong, Be Brave, and Stand.
“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13
Watch— find courage in your Creator by rising from the ashes. Courage arises when we arise. We awaken to His calling and guard ourselves with His Truth.
Be Strong—We exchange our own mortality and weaknesses for His strength and incorruptible life.
Be Brave–-Our courage will never come from knowing all the answers. Instead, courage comes when we offer our own frailty in exchange for His promises.
Stand Fast in the Faith—Our faith grounds us. Fixed in the faith of His Truth, we can overcome any obstacle.

praying alongside you, Beth, for your family’s courage and strength, and a speedy return!
Susan Stilwell says
I have to confess that my main worries involve my kids, Mitzi. They’re young adults now: one is on his own, and the other will be on her own soon. I constantly remind myself that God is more concerned with them than I could ever be, and that He knows best.
I hear you, Susan. For me, kids changed everything–shifting my worries in an entirely different direction. If not careful, I can excuse those worries as justified because, after all, I’m worrying about the well-being of someone other than myself! I think this has been one of my greatest battles. Thanks for your own confession and your reminder that God is more concerned with them than we could ever be. Praise God!
