Do everything without complaining.
-Philippians 2:14 
 
Do not worry about anything, 
but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks. 
-Philippians 4:6 

 
Today wise words from Nelson Mandela as it is Nelson Mandela International Day.
Also the Bible tells us so many times to not be afraid: 

The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? 
The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?  
-Psalm 27:1 

 



Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. 
With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God.  Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.
-Philippians 4:6-7
"Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah
He's roaring with power and fighting our battles
And every knee will bow before Him
Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain
For the sins of the world, His blood breaks the chains
And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb
Every knee will bow before Him..."
-Bethel Music

Look at the birds. 
They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?  Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
-Matthew 6:26-27 

 GOD TAKES CARE OF YOU. ALWAYS!

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from? 
 My help comes from the Lord.
-Psalm 121:1-2

Have a blessed July! 
I heard this song by Francesca Battistelli for the first time today...and I really like the song- and the lyrics...Lovely idea to break up with the fear! Yes! Because who the son sets free is free indeed! 
So fear, you will never be welcome here!

"The Breakup Song"

Sick and tired of being sick and tired
Had of much of you as I can take
I'm so done, so over being afraid

I've gone through the motions
I've been back and forth
I know that you're thinking you've heard this before
I don't know how to say it
So I'm just gonna say it

Fear, you don't own me
There ain't no room in this story
And I ain't got time for you
Telling me what I'm not
Like you know me well guess what?
I know who I am
I know I'm strong
And I am free
Got my own identity
So fear, you will never be welcome here

Take a minute, let it settle in
You probably never saw it coming
Something's gotta give so I give up you, oh
There's no room for you here
Yeah, I've had enough
No vacancy sign on my heart is lit up
In case you didn't hear it
Here it is again

Fear, you don't own me
There ain't no room in this story
And I ain't got time for you
Telling me what I'm not
Like you know me well guess what?
I know who I am
I know I'm strong
And I am free
Got my own identity
So fear, you will never be welcome here

Is there anybody out there just like me?
Anybody needing fear to leave?
If you don't know how to say it
Sing along with me

Sing fear, you don't own me
There ain't no room in this story
And I ain't got time for you
Telling me what I'm not
Like you know me well guess what?
I know who I am
I know I'm strong, brave
And I am free
Got my own identity
So fear, you will never be welcome here
Oh, goodbye, goodbye fear
You will never be welcome here
