Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me. ~ Psalm 138:7 (NIV)
When I walk into the thick of trouble, keep me alive in the angry turmoil. With one hand strike my foes, With your other hand save me. Finish what you started in me, God. (The Message)
There isn't anything or anyone big enough or bad enough to overtake God. No man, no evil, no power comes close to matching God's grip on you. Open your eyes - turn around. God is with you all the way.
No man on this earth is strong enough to steal your joy. But you can give it away with little effort - take care to keep your courage in God's hands.
God is the source of your joy - not people. Refuse to give it away.
