In Joshua 1:9 (NIV), it reads “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.”‘
I quoted this passage, not only in addition to my recent post titled “Overcoming Fears and Phobias”, but to also assure you that you have more than just one person (or spirit) by your side to help, assist, and support you unconditionally. Imagine for a second that when you look at my posted image above that each sticky-note reminder were from your loved ones, your friends, and even from a loved one who may have passed away. Whenever you feel down, think of these notes and how many people, to this day, still believe in you. This message goes for myself as well. Too often, I might slip up and have a day where I just feel helpless and overcome with the feeling of pointless despair, despite how much I try to stay strong for others. I, too, have my days, but I always remember that many people want me to keep staying strong for them and never let my dreams go: My family, my friends, and the Lord as well.
Both physically and spiritually, you are strong and have strength that is untouched. If you have a child or children, imagine those sticky-note reminders being posted by them for you. I don’t know what it’s like to be a parent, but I do know that your strength increases and shows while raising your child and preparing them for the adulthood years to come. That makes you, whether you are a parent or not, just simply amazing. 🙂
When I look at the sticky-notes, it feels as if the Lord was the one that made those notes for me to always carry in my life and inspire me to keep moving forward. Never quit your plans and the walk in your life that you believe in. Just remember to always ‘Keep on Truckin’.
