Be strong and courageous

Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous.

Are you feeling tired? Perhaps a little run down? Do you need a holiday? Are you counting the minutes till you leave work?

They say that change is as good as a holiday, and here’s what has to change: your attitude. Yes, that’s right, you get no sympathy today. Read another blog. If you feel like whinging and complaining, there are plenty of outlets on the internet that give you space. But if a good swift kick up the backside is what you need, read on.

Be strong and courageous. Notice it doesn’t say feel strong and courageous. Most days most people are driven by their feelings. I feel tired, so I’ll act tired and I’ll complain about being tired. If you want to be amazing you can’t work like that. You are commanded to be strong and courageous. There is no option, it is what you are meant to be. Be strong and courageous. It is what you were born for. Don’t live by your feelings. You are strong and courageous. Take courage and strength in that.

Be amazing.

    “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
    It is a commandment, with no options. This is my favorite verse. I use it a lot. Thank you for posting this. God Bless you.
