My people will live in safety, quietly at home. They will be at rest.
Isaiah 32:18 NLT
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV
In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.
Proverbs 12:25 NLT
Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9 ESV
Being born with a birth defect I faced the overwhelming feeling of depression at an early age.
I began to look at both sides of my family and I soon realized that I was the only one who was born with a cleft lip and palate.
So the big question popped up in my head, why me?
I took this question to my Great-Grandma, Annie Mae Hardy and she told me that God don’t make mistakes and that I have purpose.
I’m alive today because my family spoke life into me, not despair.
So when I get depressed, I quickly speak life into myself, I think about my journey thus far, I think about my journey moving forward and all life has the offer.
Habakkuk 2:2 NIV
The Lords Answer:
Then the LORD replied: Write down the revelation (vision) and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.
*Herald A person or thing viewed as a sign that something is about to happen.
Wealth and glory accompany me – also substantial Honor and a Good Name. My benefits are worth more than a big salary, even a very big salary; the returns on me exceed any imaginable bonus.
Proverbs 8:18-19 The Message
