    Here we are in 2016. whether you have been on this journey for years or for months, you know it is hard. Natalie Grant recorded a song a few years ago that gives me the strength to keep going when I am struggling. I hope it will minister to you also.

    ou are here in my heart
    You're the light that guides me through the dark
    You walk beside me, the night seems cold each time I fall
    Your arms are there to hold

    You walk beside me, giving strength I've never known
    And I am not alone
    You walk beside me
    (I am not alone)

    You are here in my mind
    I talk to you and all my fears unwind
    I know I'm loved, for who I am, you make me want to be the best that I can
    And you walk beside me, giving strength I've never known

    And I am not alone
    You walk beside me
    Oh, I am not alone
    Wherever the road leads

    And I rely on your patience
    When I face the unknown
    And because of you, I am, I am not alone, ooh
    I am not alone
    (I am not alone)

    You're always beside me, yeah, I am not alone
    Oh yeah, yeah in the sun, in the rain
    (I am not alone)
    Through the good times and in the pain
    You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
    (I am not alone)
    I know that you understand, oh yeah, yeah
    (I am not alone)

    In the sun, in the rain
    Through the good times and in the pain
    You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
    (I am not alone)
    I know that you understand, oh

    WHen things are not going our way and we are struggling, I find what I need most is to praise the Lord. The lyrics of this song help me to do that. I pray they will minister to your heart this week.

    Russ Taff Ė Praise The Lord Lyrics

    When you're up against a struggle, that shatters all your dreams
    And your hopes have been cruelly crushed by Satan's manifested schemes
    And you feel the urge within you to submit to earthly fear
    Don't let the faith you're standing in seem to disappear
    Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
    Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise
    Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise Him
    Now, Satan is a liar and he wants to make us think
    That we are paupers, when he knows himself we're children of the King
    So lift up the mighty shield of faith for the battle must be won
    We know that Jesus Christ has risen and the work's already done
    Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
    Praise the Lord, for our God inhabits praise
    Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise Him
    Praise the Lord, He will work through those who praise Him
    Praise the Lord, for our God abides in our praise
    Praise the Lord, for the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you, that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise Him
    When you praise Him
    When you praise Him
    When you praise
    When you praise, you praise the Lord
    Praise the Lord

    The weather where I live has been frigid with lost of snow. It is a time of year when being cooped up due to the weather can cause a feeling of loneliness and perhaps even cause turning to food. Here is a Prayer for MidWinter that I have been saying this week.
    From the rising of the midwinter sun to its setting,

    Scatter the darkness with the light of your love, O Shining One.( I say Jesus)

    Make me short on mean thoughts, long on offers words of comfort.

    Make me short on being driven, long on paying attention.

    Make me short on focusing only on my own, long on looking beyond.

    Make me short on obsessive lists, long on spontaneous acts of kindness,

    Make me short on mindless activity, long on time to reflect.

    Make me short on tradition as a habit, long on rediscovery and re-owning.

    Make me short on rushing a tiring, long on walking and wondering.

    Make me short on false, festive jollity, long on stilling and rooted joy.

    Make me short on guilt, long on being merciful to myself.

    Make me short on being overwhelmed, long on peaceableness as I set forth this day.

    -from The Celtic Wheel of the Year by Tess Ward

    I hope it ministers to you also.

    The prayer of my heart this week is found in the lyrics of a song by Hillsong. May we always seek the ways of the Lord on this journey and in life.

    Show Me Your Ways
    Song by Hillsong Live

    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways
    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways
    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways
    Show me Your ways
    That I may walk with You
    Show me Your ways
    I put my hope in You
    The cry of my heart
    Is to love You more
    To live with the
    Touch of Your hand
    Stronger each day
    Show me Your ways

    If we look upward, it will be that much harder to drag us down!

    Have a blessed week.
