Psalms 42:5 - Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Dearest Readers -

Be encouraged today if you are in the pits of anxiety and depression, despondency and despair, if your heart is broken, and/or your life is in such disarray you've become lost on life's journey, that you can put your hope in God and He will bring you through. Turn to Him in sincerity and truth and ask Jesus to come into your heart and be the Lord of your life. For scripture says God is an ever-present help in time of trouble. Through faith in His Son, Jesus, you not only will see the Light at the end of your tunnel but He will bring you out with a new song in your heart and praise on your lips. For the help of His countenance is all we really need. He is our answer for life in all of life's pinnacles and pitfalls. He is our hope when hope seems lost. He is Love to us, unconditional and without condemnation, when it seems the world has forsaken us. He is our strength when we can't make it another moment for scripture says His strength is made perfect in our weaknesses, and are they not many?

In James 3:17 scripture says that the wisdom that is from above (that is from God) is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated (easy to be asked), full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. This is the wisdom I seek daily. This is the attitude I want to have in both writing to encourage others or in my daily walk with God. It is so easy to get off track when the bottom drops out of one's life. It is far too common to jump ship and head another direction when times are hard. How often we just want to throw our hands up and quit in the utter hardness and seeming unfairness of life in trying and tragic times. But it is at those times that one needs to get alone with God and ask for help. Prayerfully settle in and let God impart to you His wisdom, that pureness of knowledge the heart so longs for. Trust Him enough to admit situations have become overwhelming and faith is faltering. He understands our humanness. He is aware of our squirming and complaining and the attitude that accompanies such. But through it all, God is faithful to lead us out into that place of serene calmness if we will allow Him to work in and through us and every fabric of our lives, the painful and the pitiful.

Through many years of searching, praying, studying scriptures, seeking His face and His wisdom, I have learned that His way is the only way that really works. Man's way seems right for a while but then begins to crumble and become a burden. God's way is sure footing. God's way is not a rushed decision. It is not a spur of the moment, a hurry-up-or-you'll-miss-it opportunity. God's way is steadfast and trustworthy. God's way can be accomplished with patience and the quiet assurance that He's there and He's working it all out. We are just resting in that fact. It is a peaceful place when we can trust God enough to know that even when our lives don't make sense to us they make sense to God, and He's going to make a way even when there seems to be no way. Can we just accept Him and His perfect plan for our lives and believe with everything inside us that God IS for us and NOT against us? It takes a great load off the mind when we are trusting Him for grace and mercy, His divine revelation and intervention, for His help in times when we are up to our neck in the mire and cannot navigate the slippery slopes with confidence. For truly He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother and He will carry you when you are not able to carry yourself. He will lift you up and bless you at the weakest of times and be an ever-present Guide in your darkest of times. Yes, in your midnight hour He stands with you.

Scripture says there is no greater love than this than that a man lay down his life for another. With what love He has loved us! No matter where you may be today, no matter how much turmoil you may be facing, my prayer is that these words of inspiration, powered by God, will bless you and comfort you on your spiritual journey. May you be encouraged and inspired to dig deeper into the things of God, more of His love, more of His peace, His infinite grace and merciful forgiveness. Take hold His hand and believe His love this moment and He will make something beautiful out of your life. Take your eyes off the pain and focus on Him, trust Him, lean on Him. He is able to bear your load and He will give you rest. So let your journey begin. From inspirational articles to books of inspiring poetry, personal testimonies and daily devotionals, may these words of inspiration be a blessing to all in search of Godly comfort, spiritual healing, and all the goodness that abounds in loving God, believing Jesus came to save us, and learning to love each other. Always know that God is only a prayer away!
