How strong must you be to sing praise to God? If M and J are any measure, very strong, but not very big. M&J learned this prayer from a children's sermon at our new church. They fight over who gets to lead at each meal.
Be strong! As strong as a child who can run and climb and sing and play all day long! As strong as a 5 year old on 16 inch bike tires keeping up with mom on a 5 mile ride.
Be very courageous! As courageous as each recovering addict, as courageous as any cancer survivor!
"Do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." (more words to Joshua from the Lord)
God is with you... whether you are strong, courageous, or really tired and weak!
