In Joshua 1 it says “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” What do you need courage for this week? Has anything happened that brought fear into your heart and made you feel discouraged? Jesus comes towards you and says “kia kaha my beloved one.” Courage comes from being with Jesus. God’s word is spoken to you so that it calms you, like how pausing and taking some deep breathes does. May your lungs be filled with the Holy Spirit and your hearts comforted and may we all turn to God in praise:

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only
