Take Courage

Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord! 

Psalm 27:14
Thank God and take courage, rejoice evermore!
for he on whose promise we stand
shall know of a surety the way that we go,
and prosper the work of our hand.
Thank God and take courage, of this we are sure,
that he, our Redeemer and Friend,
whose goodness and mercy thus far we have proved,
will lead us safe on to the end.
Thank God and take courage, though trials we meet,
remember the Savior is nigh;
one kind, gentle word from his dear, loving voice
will sweep every cloud from the sky.
Thank God and take courage, our vigor renew,
press on to the mansions above,
the mansions that Jesus has gone to prepare
for those who abide in his love.
Rejoice evermore! rejoice evermore!
till shouting we anchor on Canaan’s bright shore;
then purer and sweeter our rapture will be,
for there in his beauty the King we shall see.
 Charles T. Haines (1884)

Our hope for you is unshaken; for we know that as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our consolation.
 2 Corinthians 1:7
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Grant, O God, that I may speak so boldly and so lovingly that the greatness of Christ may shine out clearly in my person, through the indwelling of your Holy Spirit.✙ 
 Donald Coggan

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
