Much Needed Words

Often the Bible gives us the right words just when we need them. This happened for me today. I read one of my favorite verses (Zephaniah 3:16-17)...below the verse is my translation...God's specific words to my heart.

"Do not fear; do not let your hands grow weak.
The Lord your God is in your midst.
A warrior who gives victory.
He will rejoice over you with gladness.
He will renew you in his love.
He will exult over you with loud singing.
-Zephaniah 3:16-17

"Do not panic or stress out; do not give up or give in.

Yahweh, your father, is closer than you think…he is with you.
A mighty hero who will win.
He will take delight in you with great joy.
He will mend you and restore you with his love.
He will sing over you in joyful celebration."
