A little prayer for the rest of the week….
Dear Lord, help me to know that no condition is permanent. And that grey clouds are just passing clouds that will soon be replaced with bright skies of hope. Teach me to say, “this too shall pass” when am faced with difficulties. Help me to hold on, while trusting you, one day at a time. Amen
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Learn to appreciate the people around you. No one is an island. We all need somebody. A cheerful look brings joy to the heart (Prov 15:30), in the same way that a grateful person makes you want to go all out for him/her. Sure, there is plenty you do not have, but there is much you do have if you have people around you.
Appreciate the smallest of gestures and you’ll find that you feel better for doing so and you may also make someone else’s day.
“If you feel like you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!*“ The God of Heaven is the God of great miracles and provision. He is holding the other end of the rope.
*Often attributed to Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Roosevelt although the actual source might be a proverb from the American West in a 1946 article in Pearce, T.M., “The English Proverb in New Mexico,” California Folklore Quarterly 5, no. 4 (1946): 354
Do you know people who only see the cup as half full? That’s not your God.
God always wants the best for you and sees the best in you. Sure, He wants you to “fix up” in those challenging areas of your life, but through it all, He’s rooting for you to get it right.
Imagine running in a stadium and you’re about to beat Usain Bolt in the 100metres; there’s someone cheering wildly in the crowds and shouting at the top of their lungs. That’s God cheering you on and waving a banner saying “You can do it!”. Just imagine that.
