Friday {in focus} ~ Be Strong & Courageous

I'm not very fond of heights like these. My son is, however.
It's likely you'll find him on top of rocks, in the tops of trees, or on top of a mountain.

This world is full of scary things these days.
Wars. Rumors of wars. Famine. Sex trafficking. Drug cartels.
Pornography. Murder. Politicians. Shootings. Wild fires. Hurricanes.
Death. Destruction.

And for Christians, it seems, attacks.
Everyone else can scream about their rights. Their liberties. Their faiths.
But they want to shut us up.

I pray that my son is not only a tree climber and a mountain hopper.
I pray that he grows into a man of God who is not afraid.
Not afraid to stand up for His faith.
Not afraid to stand up for the Truth.
 Not afraid to defend women and children, widowers and orphans.
Not afraid to stand up to corruption and evil.

I pray that we can all be strong and courageous. Him, me, and you.

Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.
~ Joshua 1:7
