Philippians 1:20-21 I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
These verses are a beautiful prayer I can say to God whenever I need courage. Paul was in prison, undoubtedly going through frightening physical and emotional challenges. I haven’t had to face anything like that, but these words bring me back to an important truth. The truth is we have been promised eternal life with God. No matter what comes my way, I must remember I am on this earth as a servant, and when I am finished, I will be with God.
Heavenly Father, I hope and pray you are pleased with your creation. I am your servant on this earth. I am at peace, knowing I will be with you for all eternity. Amen
