Scripture for the Year...

I've seen a word for the year and phrase for the year posts throughout the past couple of weeks and I wasn't planning to jump on the bandwagon.  But when I saw this scripture I said to myself, "this is it" (so on the wagon I go)...

My Scripture for the Year

9 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.” (Joshua 1:9, NIV)

I have SO many plans for this year, so many ideas that I'd like to put into motion.  But I must admit that I've held back out of fear.  Worried that I may fail, that I may be ridiculed, talked about.  Worried that I just wasn't good enough, smart enough, dedicated enough to see my plans through to fruition.

But I failed to see something so vitally important!  He has COMMANDED me to not live in fear!!!

com·mandverb \ˌkuh-mand, -mahnd\
to require authoritatively; demand

Be strong, Be Courageous, Be Fearless, Be Encouraged
This is a requirement, a demand, A MUST!!!

And to top it all off...
He said He'd be with me every step of the way!
If only I could put into words how the thought of that makes me feel :)!
May God get all the glory through what He blesses me to do this year!!!
