“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Let your Light Shine
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
“Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Do Not Worry
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?"
God Gives Us Self-Control
…for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
-2 Timothy 1:7
Prepare Your Minds
"Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
-1 Peter 1:13
Do Not Be Afraid
"Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
"Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever."
God Loves You
"For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever."
Love, Goodness and Gentleness
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law."
