Coffee talk with Nadine

Yesterday at work I received news I wasn’t planning on receiving. I felt very discouraged and mad at a system I have little control over. The political-ness of it left me heart broken. I tried on my own to solve it. Make sense of it. Even vented a little.

Situation Normal AFU. 
And the beat goes on. 
I turned to the index of my bible for an answer. Looking up the word discouraged led me to a dead end. So I did a 180 and looked up “courage” instead. 

What I found was a very old familiar verse that lifted me out of the ugliness and mucky-ness of the situation. 

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 13:6

I read that a yielded heart does not whine or rebel when the going gets tough. Instead it musters the courage to thank Him even in hard times. In doing so, we exhibit trust. I am thankful for my job. And hopeful I can find another avenue. 

Score settled. No need to worry about That anymore. 

Be strong. Be of good courage. Do not fear. 

All directives I can live with. 

Strong, courageous and fearlessly yours, 

Nadine Bodine

Your VERY Best friend in the whole wide world
