Child, be strong and courageous;
I’m in this fight with you.
And I’ll supply the strength you need,
And grace to see you through.
At times it’s going to feel like
You can’t take any more.
But keep in mind the many times
I’ve stood with you before.
And child, if you grow weary,
And lack the strength to stand,
I’ll be right here to lean upon;
Just take hold of My hand.
And this, child, is My promise –
New mercies will be yours,
As you see how My faithful hand
Repairs, renews… restores.
“…Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be
with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 NIV
