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
First post of 2014! So, Happy New Year to all Just-A-Thought (JAT) readers around the world. It is our prayer here that you’d continue to know the Lord’s blessings, keeping and enabling this year. Amen.
Also, thank you for your continued support, comments, follows, likes, shares and encouragement. JAT wouldn’t be the same without you all. Thank you so much. Here’s to another year of sharing the hope that comes from the Lord, above.
Finally, for the next couple of weeks, JAT will be taking a trip down into the archives to dig up some of the favourite posts from the past years. Watch this space…
Hard pressed, pushed to the wall
Till it feels like walking on thin ice;
When reason and logic seems more appealing
Than trust in a promise of providence;
When sight and the now more desirable than
Faith and hope in a better future.
But, we refuse to give in to the lure of the temporary
And yield only to the leading of the Dependable Hand.
In a world that constantly seeks to claw us in,
We pray that You would preserve our faith, Lord,
Till thin ice becomes a sure, immovable Rock of safety.
Help us look to You alone, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

“Never give up, never give up
Never give up to thy sorrows
Jesus will bid them depart
Trust in the Lord, Trust in the Lord
Sing when your trials are greatest
Trust in the Lord and take heart.” – F. Crosby
