Hope

Monday, October 20, 2014



Recently pain has been my 24/7 champion. And because I am a very normal person, I felt some very normal emotions, like frustration as well as feeling a little down. However, I know that these emotional feelings cannot dominate my thoughts. Instead, I need to be more positive.

I am believing in better days. In other words, I have hope. I realize that everything good in life begins with hope. Hope come to me when I pray and trust in the Lord.

Also, I am hopeful that my new doctor will be able to help me manage this pain. Hope is a wonderful emotion that I am learning to use as well as feel.

    Isaiah 40:31
"...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." I believe this is true even for those who can no longer run, or even walk, physically. God will always uphold your spirit and allow you to soar. Your trust and hope are in the right place! emoticon

    You are such a positive person... probably the most positive person I know. I pray that your hope does not fail you when the pain seems too unbearable. I pray that your new doctor can help you find some much needed relief.

    One of the devil's greatest weapons is keeping believers in unfounded condemnation. While we need to realize it isn't all about us; it's about God, we also need to realize if we are forgiven, we are forgiven!

Too many people continue to come to God and grovel, beg, plead and repent for something that God has taken care of long, long ago! God is saying, "What are you talking about? Get up and live anew. I can't forgive something that's already taken care of and you can't repent of something that's already taken care of. Stop wasting our time and seek first My kingdom and righteousness, instead of something that's not real."

  Excellent thought!

In spite of a horrible childhood, in spite of adversity--- one can realize that he/she has value, worth, and dignity. It is time to start living a joyful life!

God loves us--- and we should love ourselves!
