“Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
(Joshua 1:9)

Thought for the day:

As Mary and Joseph journeyed to Bethlehem, I wonder if they were encouraged by remembering passages such as this one- it’s certainly helped me to keep going over the years. As we draw to the end of 2020, let us be strong and courageous in all God calls us to.

Today’s prayer:

Heavenly Lord,
You are our God and we are Your people. Help us to know your presence and to feel your guiding hand with us today.
May we grow in faith as we trust in you and see the coming of your glory in our lives.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
