Get Up and Go

“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee.” (Genesis 12:1)

God wants us to know, however, that He us with us at all times and in all places. We do not have to allow fear to defeat us or hold us hostage from living in the freedom and joy of life. In the face of fear, we can still move forward and be victorious. Continue reading
