One of my newly favored passages in the bible comes from Joshua 1:6-8. The Lord is giving Joshua instructions to cross into the Promised Land. He tells Joshua to "Be strong and of good courage" TWICE! God KNOWS that the journey ahead will be hard for Joshua but He also KNOWS that Joshua can do it if he is strong and courageous. The wonderful thing about this passage is that even though God is giving Joshua a command to do something tough, something that is probably out of Joshua's character, God gives Joshua a promise of a wonderful reward. God tells Joshua that if he follows God's command, remains strong and courageous, that "you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."
Isn't it comforting to know that if we make the right choices in our journey to a new being, a more healthy person, we will be prosperous and have good success?! I think it is and I will do my best to keep these verses of scripture in the forefront of my mind as I travel this journey just like others have before me and I will be prosperous and have good success! I WILL BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS!!!
