Home, Home on the Range.
When I was a little boy, one of my favorite TV heroes was Roy Rogers. I still remember some of the words to one of his song "Home, Home on the Range."
"Home, home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day."
That may be true in television life but it doesn’t quite work for us. We do hear discouraging words. Not every day is filled with sunshine. Skies do get cloudy. Storms set in. Stuff happens.
But I am grateful that when the sky begins to cloud and the storms come crashing down that we have a God who is there for us. We can look to the Bible to find encouragement when the stuff happens and things begin to break loose. God’s word is full of encouragement. I want to share one of the many Bible verses on enco
uragement with you today.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, the the LORD your God is with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9, ESV).
Remember, our God is there whenever we need Him. Be encouraged!
