Episode notes

God is the source of all courage. When our relationship with him is close, courage comes naturally because we trust God to protect us. This means that we don’t have to be swept away by fear or worry in even the most stressful and scary circumstances.

Listen to these verses of the Bible that will fill us with the courage that gives us strength, peace, understanding, patience, and hope.
