  1. In Courage,

    I’ve found that when angst & unrest abound think on the goodness of God. Taking your mind off the current situation & reflecting on Him & His holiness can ease your weary soul some. Make a thankful journal. List all the things God has blessed you with. Remember the times He has saved you or gotten you through a trial. Turn on some good praise music & start being joyful in the Lord.

    Blessings 🙂

  2. We are the Sheep the Lord is Our Shepherd. Like in Psalm 23 verse 1. The Lord is my Shepherd. In the first line of verse of that Psalm. And Shepherd know all his sheep and if one is missing. Or injured he goes looking for it and finds it and bring it back to Sheep fold. If we have injury in our souls we can go the Shepherd who is Jesus in Prayer and he will carry our problem on his Shoulders. Like the Shepherd carrys his Sheep on his Shoulders. Home to other Sheep and makes sure it’s not injured. If injured. Looked after it untill it is well again. Jesus will do the same for us his followers again with that Problem we have in our Souls. When we come to him our Shepherd and give it to him in Prayer. Until we have that Joy in our Souls again. He will make sure in part of verse 4 of Psalm 23 which says make sure we are not afraid. It says I will not be afraid for you are close beside me your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. Jesus the Shepherd will comfort us. In verse 5 of Psalm 23 Jesus the Shepherd as we are his sheep will prepare a feast for me (and you) in the present of my enemies (your enemies). Meaning Jesus will not let the enemy touch you. Jesus Welcome you as guest. Anointing my head (and yours) with oil. My cup (and yours) overflows with blessings. So Jesus does all that when you and me put our trust in him and hand the problem over to him that in our Souls. Let him make it happy again and through his Holy Spirit listen to Jesus telling you what to do. Then do it. We being to get the Joy back again that was once there. Don’t let Satan Rob it away. Then in verse 6 of Psalm 23 Surely your goodness (and mine) and unfailing love will pursue me (and you) all the days of my life (and your life) And I (you will) live in the house of Lord forever. How good that is too know. So that is Joy worth knowing that Jesus gives and that should give us Joy to smile about.

  3. I love the Psalms and have always found great comfort in them. Our Shepherd loves and cares for us. We need not fear. Amen to your comments, Beth, Bev and Dawn!
