Wow....did I ever need to hear this on this morning! Father always, always knows exactly what I need. ..... kinda like He's GOD or something, huh? :)
I have been so frustrated with pressures of my life.....and then doing what I do when pressure hits....running from it, from obligation. Well, the good news is that it was a very short run this time, kinda just around the block so to speak. Thank God! Literally.....thank GOD. So, after a night of absolute nervous break down, lack of concentration and etc......the sun arises on the new day. Thank You, Father for these new starts....fresh starts every sunrise.
And ... encouragement comes from my friend, Max Lucado.....again.
"I Am the LORD, the GOD of every person on the earth. Nothing is impossible for Me."
Jeremiah 32:27 NCV
"We need to hear that GOD is still in control. We need to hear that it's not over until He says so. We need to hear that life's mishaps and tragedies are not a reason to bail out. They are simply a reason to sit tight.
Corrie ten Boom used to say, 'When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets hard, do you jump out? Of course not. You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through'....
The way to deal with discouragement? The cure for disappointment? Go back and read the story of GOD. Read it again and again. Be reminded that you aren't the first person to weep. And you aren't the first person to be helped.
Read the story and remember, the story is yours!"
The story is mine.............
...giving voice to those with none....
