Do you feel terrified or discouraged?

I've felt so alone many times in my life.... When I was rejected in high school, when I went off to Germany for a year after I finished highschool to study in a Latvian school, when my first husband left me, when I faced my first pregnancy alone, when I became a single working mom, when people reject me because I go against the flow.... and the list goes on. Do you feel that way too? I bet you do! That is why God put it on my heart to write this blog post.


When we face times that we feel alone, discouraged and afraid, we need to flush out our mind of all the negative thoughts that cause worry by filling it with words of hope, positive messages, and, most importantly, with the promises God gives us in the Bible, like the one in Joshua 1:9, which I wrote in the picture image. "Do not be terrified or discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." There is also the one from Isaiah 41:10 which says "Do not be afraid for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will STRENGTHEN you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my rightheous right hand."
