Today’s reading: Joshua 1:9; Philippians 4:6-7

A few years back a dear friend gave me two charms that had scriptures noted on them. She didn’t know it at the time, but the passages she had selected, Joshua 1:9 and Philippians 4:6-7, are two of my go-to favorites because of how their messages serve to encourage me and refocus my thinking on God being in control and my caretaker. I put those two charms on a chain along with a cross to make a necklace. I love this necklace and wear it a lot. Each time I put it on, I can’t help but think about those two passages. But an unexpected benefit of this necklace is how other people notice the charms and comment on them. This has given me the opportunity to talk with quite a few people about my faith and how God is watching over, providing for, and guiding me.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9).

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

How did these two scriptures and their messages impact and encourage you today? Tami
