Look uP


Good morning everyone!

I've gotten alot of emails lately. There are so many people going through so many different things. Life has many ups, downs, twists, turns, speed bumps, mountains and valleys.

I just want to take a moment today to encourage you!
No matter what you're going through. No matter what your circumstance may look like: Just look uP. Don't focus on your circumstance but the ONE who will see you through it.

"but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31

You're SO right, Lea! It DOES seem like many, many people are going through hard times. Your words are "right on"!

(Sometimes I wonder if people in other generations handled hard times better - they never had it as good as some of us have had it for years --and were more "hardened" to difficulty...They had inner resources and didn't have to go so public with their distress/stress....and/or they lived more connectedly to family & close friends who helped shoulder the load...)

I don't know why I was thinking about this and wondering if things really ARE worse - or if we are just "soft". I didn't come up with answers, by the way.

This is so very true, but we must remember God never gives us more then we can handle. What doesn't break us truly does make us stronger. I've learned this the hard way lately. Have a lovely evening.
Blessings,
Jill

:) you posted that just for me huh?

hard times indeed but as Jill said...God will NEVER give us more than we can handle its just some days I ask God..."are ya sure? Not feeling it God, not feeling it at all!" thats when I gotta get my PRAISE ON...get my eyes off of my circumstances and JUST LOOK UP!

Thanks for reminding me, after a very rough night, to PUT MY HOPE IN HIM, to soar on wings like Eagles, to RUN and not grow weary to WALK and NOT BE faint!

So for me today! What a word of encouragment!

Love ya girl,
Char
