Lauren Daigle has such a beautiful voice…just the uplifting sound that I needed to hear today. Enjoy!❤😊❤
One of my favorite songs/groups. When life gets overwhelming this song brings me back to a place of peace. Take care of yourselves today…spiritually, even if it’s reading a scripture, listening to a song, saying a small prayer,etc. Physical health does not matter, if our souls aren’t being nourished. We will never be perfect people, but we can always be moving forward to progress daily in things that are eternal. One day at a time😌 (Note to myself, everyday). ❤
(Psalm 30:5) ” Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
Even when life does not go as we have planned…God is still worthy of ALL the Praise!🎉🎉🎉
(Psalm 150:6) “Let EVERYTHING that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.
A very close friend of mine once said to me; “When it’s the end, and everyone is saying their final goodbyes…nothing else matters at that moment. It does not matter if you are a Democrat or Republican, it’s just that moment.” He shared this with me, having experienced the loss of his very best friend.
There are certain events in our lives that change how we see things, forever. I almost lost my son to illness. “I am what happens”, when a young ovulating woman is raped. I’m here. Neither planned, and not always hoped for in the beginning. But I’m here. My marriage failed…..we failed our marriage. I left my matrimony through a window and found myself pulling my son through the same. We caught a Greyhound with a few bags, and we’ve been living a new life ever since. A childhood friend of mine hung himself, just a couple of days after seeing my Mom at the store, hugging her, and speaking so highly of his family. Years before this, he said to me; “Pray for me, that God gives me the desire to go back to church.” We never really know the battle of someones spirit and mind.
These happenings change everything we believe in. It does not change the source of our beliefs. It changes the receiver (us). If I talk about worldly topics with no direction, conviction or any sort of spiritual betterment….people like me. If my writing is full of “Jesus”, folks either keep quiet or have more to say that gets no where. I don’t debate scripture. I don’t entertain scoffers. I will answer questions (with scripture) for a minute, then I move on, if I see it will get know where, but in an argument. I don’t have time for that…neither does anyone else. This is the state of our world. Either way, I am fine. My lifeline is where my faith lies. My upbringing has little to do with my love for God. Some would say that’s not true, but it is very true. As strict as my mother was, I had a lot of freedom. I did not live in a Religious home. I am SO thankful for that. If I did, I would have grown up like many of these writers whom have been “enlightened” by “something”….and have the answers to “inner peace”, that floats around in the Universe somewhere. I learned about Faith and Hope.
I was raised to believe in Jesus Christ, but I was not raised to feel condemned to hell when I made mistakes. That is what religion does….it condemns. That is far from the character of Christ.
(John 3:17) “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.“
Life tosses us around, like the contents of a shaken snow globe. We have to hope and have faith that when everything settles, we land on our feet…unscathed. Often times we don’t. Then what? I know with whom I can trust in….but do you?
(Psalm 121:1-2) “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth.”
