Be Strong and Courageous

So...what a week!!!

I endured a time change...with a positive attitude! I said it was an extra hour of daylight...which it was and I am grateful...but boy am I tired!

I started a new job! Went from 0 hours to over 40 on my feet all day...I am feeling it!

I endured hearing heartbreaking news from family and friends. Including arrests, deaths, and more than one marriage may be breaking up...

All of that plus personal issues and day to day life to deal with.

ABOVE ALL ELSE THOUGH...GOD IS SOOOO GOOD! And FAITHFUL!

He has given me strength and endurance to keep going and I am SO thankful!

One story, a Scripture, and then I am on my way again...

I went to a concert last night...Skillet (hard core man!), and Toby Mac...Such a PHENOMENAL show put on by some of the best Jesus Freaks out there!!!

Well, I went with two other gals...and we went hoping to buy tickets at the door. As we approached the ticket counter a man approached us and showed us 3 tickets. Before we could say anything he said, "You don't have to buy them." He threw them in my friend's hands and ran off...

All I had time to think was I need to THANK HIM!!!

So I chased him down to make sure I could, looked him in the eye and thanked him...later I thought...WHY DIDN'T I GET A PIC? I knew I would blog about it later! LOL...

So...we proceeded to our seats...and they were all of 50 feet from the stage!

And...of course it was the concert that I didn't bring my camera to! But...I got to enjoy the show and rock out for Jesus!

It doesn't require many words to tell you this was a GREAT encouragement to my soul this week!

The Scripture has been on my heart for a couple of weeks now and has come up in a sermon and a Bible study...it has gotten me through a LOT! The entire book of Joshua was a great read for me this week, but I will leave you with the following...

"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.

Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go."
--Joshua 1:9, 16
