It’s Not Over Yet ~ for King & Country

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation.
But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed,
for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them,
for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4

Alone {Hollyn}

There are days when we just feel alone midst an all-consuming world! However, we can stand firm in the promise that God is with us always…he will never leave you or forsake you. Yes, there will persecution and suffering (John 16:33, John 15:19-20).

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
~ Deuteronomy 31:8

Fear or Not to Fear….that is a Choice!

For God has not given us the spirit of fear and timidity,
but of power, love and of self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7

Season of Fear

There is no fear in the LORD, but yet we in our flesh still struggle with this very real and exceedingly intense feeling that can overwhelm and drown us if we are not cautious.  Fear comes and we must, as Christians, face it head on and see it for what it is….a ploy by Satan to deter us from the beauty and peace that is found in God and His promises for us!  Take a second to think about what fears are holding you back from receiving the promises of God.  Is it fear of failure?  Fear of rejection?  Fear of losing earthly possessions like your home or your car?  Fear of being alone?  Fear of the unknown?  What fear is driving you away from the arms of God?  Take that fear, pray, give it to God and let Him handle it for He is bigger and promises us rest.  Once He takes hold of it, then we are free to grow and mature in our walk with Him.

Blessings to you all and may the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.
~ Psalm 85:11 ~

You Make Me Brave ~ Bethel Music

What, then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
~ Romans 8:31

From my distress I called upon the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free.
The LORD is for me, so I will not fear! What can man do to me?
~ Psalm 118: 6-7

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
~ Psalm 27:1

Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, and I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
~ Isaiah 41:10

Come as You Are! ~ Crowder

Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy
And my burden is light.
~ Matthew 11:28-30

Come as You Are!

Broken
Hurting
Ashamed
Come as you are

Confused
Angry
Lost
Come as you are

Bitter
Wandering
Sorrowful
Come as you are

Healing found
Hope renewed
Joy restored
Come as you are

Freedom from bonds
Light to lead the way
Mercy free flowing
Come as you are

Sit in the arms of the Lord
Find rest under the shadow of His wings
Be filled to overflowing
Just come as you are

Greater ~ MercyMe

Everyone wrestles with the world, with its perceptions and views of what and who we are to be. We often wrestle with doubt, fear, hurt, condemnation, and anxiety. However, God is greater than all that we face, feel, think, or wrestle with! He is the Victor, and through Him we find freedom and victory no matter what we battle.

May the peace of God surround you and fill you with the knowledge that you are God’s child, His joy and His creation, and He loves you and will be with you through it all.

God bless and keep you always!
All my love ❤
