Thankful Thursday-Courage

Courage in your moment of grief. Courage in your moment of pain. Courage in your moment of sickness. Courage in your moment of stress. Courage in your moment of despair. Courage.

Today I praise God as I visit Laurie's site for the weekly Thankful Thursday meme because the theme is what I exactly need right now. I am reminded of Joshua when they are about to cross the Jordan river, God told them so many times to be courageous.

Joshua 1:9 (New International Version)
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

I know that is what God has been telling me. We need to be courageous as we face difficulties in life and I thank HIM for reminding me this today.

Hubby's family had a meeting last week because their youngest sister which is only 16 is pregnant. We were all shocked, disappointed, hurt and somewhat confuse on what to do to her. We pray she'll find courage to stand up again too. This will have a big impact in our married life because she lives with us.

Thank God for the humble and gentle heart of my husband. I know he is also hurt but he deals with this problem with gentleness.

I still and will always believe that GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.

For more thankful and encouraging post, visit Laurie of Woman taking a stand.

And of course they brought home a hygiene kit which contains;

1. toothbrush
2. toothpaste
3. cotton buds
4. band aids
5. shampoo
6. a comb
7. a face towel
8. and a bath soap

We're coming up of a hygiene mobile van project, which will cater to kids who live on the streets, we also would like to give and teach them basic hygiene, we hope to tie up with NGO's or Orphanage so they could be taken out of the streets and be able to live a decent life. This is a big big project so we need all your prayers and support.

Thank you for praying for us.
