Jericho within Sight

Eyes cast in wonder
Spies enter the Promised Land
Jericho in sight

Rahab offered sanctuary
Her family offered mercy

Be Strong and Courageous

Be bold,
Be courageous,
Behold your God;
Be careful
To keep the Law,
Which Jesus fulfilled,
Which hangs on these:
Love your God
Heart, soul, and mind;
Love your neighbour
As yourself;
Then you will
Be prosperous,
Be successful;
Your God commands:
Be strong,
Be courageous;
Do not be afraid,
Do not be discouraged;
For the Lord your God
Will be with you
Wherever you go.

inspired by Joshua 1
