If you’re a parent, you’ve probably found yourself repeating things several times when speaking to your child. Sometimes it’s frustrating because we don’t think they’re listening. We continue to repeat ourselves because we are trying to show our children the right way. Isn’t that what out heavenly Father does with many lessons he is trying to teach us? Several times in scripture, God says to “be strong and courageous.”  In Joshua 1:6-9, God repeats these words to Joshua three times and he listened. Because of his obedience, the people were finally able to enter the Promised Land. Just like us, God doesn’t repeat things to hear himself talk. He wants us to listen and obey so we can follow the path he has made for us -just like Joshua did.  God Loves Ya 😉 – Karen Chappell
