 Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD. (Psalm 31:24 NKJV)

I used to be shy and very timid.  I did not talk to anyone that I did not have to.  I lived life as a turtle tucked inside my shell, believing that no one could hurt me there.  Praise God. He has delivered me.  He has taught be to be strong and courageous, a bulldog in faith.   He has given me a voice. He taught me to write for Him.  I write to enCOURAGE you in the Lord and in life.  I write to move you from the place of DIScourageMENT, whether it be from weakness, sickness, sadness, depression, anxiety, timidity …into courage.  The Lord repeatedly inspires us through His word to be courageous!  The Hebrew word for courage, chazaq, is so rich in meaning. 

BE OF GOOD COURAGE…

  • Be Strong
  • Withstand
  • Be Bound Fast
  • Be Gird
  • Hold Fast
  • Fasten To
  • Take Hold Of
  • Be Stuck Fast
  • Be Joined to
  • Be Constant
  • Be Bold
  • Be Earnest
  • Be Established
  • Be Made Strong
  • Be Made Firm
  • Be Repaired
  • Be Restored
  • Be Rebuilt
  • Be Resolute

I know you might get tired of hearing the same thing, but if the Lord encourages me every day to be resolute in Him.  I am going enCOURAGE you to do the same!   Courage is boldly facing our fears. Courage is confidently doing it afraid.

AND…

I can enCOURAGE with His Word, but it is God who strengthens.  It is God he strengthens me to write.  It is God who gives me the boldness to talk to the stranger.  It is the Lord who makes me brave to minister and pray for others.  It is all Him.  We can do all things with Him and nothing without Him. He is the power behind the courage.

HE SHALL STRENGTHEN…

ALL YOU WHO HOPE IN THE LORD.

  • All you who wait in the Lord.
  • All you who are patient in the Lord.
  • All you who expect in the Lord. 

I enCOURAGE you to be COURAGEOUS, be STRONG and to HOPE IN THE LORD.  Turn your life around; face him head on.  You have an amazing life to boldly live out in Him.
