11.20.2020 – “Don’t Be Afraid”

I love this song by Josh Garrels

Wanted to share it on here this morning… because it soothed and encouraged me.

In a time that many hearts are troubled….

Here is a song to remind us… to encourage and uplift us—a soothing “balm” for hearts in a time of much discouragement.

So take heart—keep going,

keep trusting,

stand FIRM,

…and don’t be afraid. ? ?


Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.”—Ecclesiastes 3:11

“Don’t Be Afraid” by Josh Garrels

Don’t be afraid to try your hardest
Carry the weight and rise when you fall down

The weight won’t break your soul
But make you strong and able to hold
All the good things
Yet to come

Don’t be ashamed of what they say about you
Time will reveal your work was good and true

The weight won’t break your soul
But make you strong and able to hold
The love of God
And all the glory from above
And all the good things
Yet to come

On a bit of a side note, I find it interesting that the Holy Spirit —known as our “Comforter“… has a way of allowing us into situations or circumstances that often feel extremely “uncomfortable.”

…And then He shows us what real, supernatural “comfort” from heaven truly is, in the midst of the “discomfort” that we experience and endure in this life.

And through Him, we get to experience true comfort, not the temporary, false kind that is so “available” in this earth.

Isn’t that interesting?

“But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.“—John 14:26 AMP

He has His ways, and He has His reasons,

He teaches us, and He shows us what is true.

…and He is always good.

Thank You, Father. ?
