We have our anxieties, we have our fears …

Learning From God's Word

Joshua

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

We have our anxieties, we have our fears.

Sometimes, our worries drive us to tears.

What are we to do when it all seems too much?

Let’s wait upon God for His powerful touch.

We need not fear the way ahead. He will be our Guide.

He will lead us in His way. He’ll be by our side.
