I don’t know about you, but nighttime is the worst for me. All the fears, shortfalls, failure, what-ifs, uhoh’s love to come out as soon as my head hits the pillow. I’m good at stuffing and distracting during the busy day, but when all is dark and quiet, it explodes.
So here’s a little reminder for us...
In case no one has told you today, you are strong, smart, beautiful, fully equipped for good works, created in the image of perfection, and an heir to the most amazing kingdom.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8
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
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
