Be Thou Strong and Very Courageous

It takes courage to face life's Extreme Challenges that sometimes beat you down and break your Spirit with no apologies. Life can be cruel and challenging at times to say the least. There can be Physical Challenges in life, Mental and Emotional Challenges, Spiritual Challenges in life besides Everything else.
But I am reminded of what God told Joshua in the midst of great Struggles and Trials, when he was faced with overwhelming Defeat and Loss, "Only be Thou Strong and Very Courageous." It takes courage to look life straight in the eyes and say to myself that this thing that I'm facing won't destroy me, it won't rob me of my faith and it certainly won't take away my joy. You and I have a choice to make. We can give in to the pressures and challenges of life and agree with the adversary that we're going down, we can believe that we are going to lose everything and be made ashamed or we can agree with God that there is no Temptation that taketh us that is not common to man but God is faithful who will not allow us to be tempted above that we are able but with the temptation make a way of escape that we will be able to bear it. I don't know about you, but I choose to agree with God.
