Keep the Faith

a lot of not-so-pleasant things are happening everywhere it seems. not just to those affected by the hurricane but to people in general lately. so i pass to you what someone passed to me once. They said "when you can't see His hand, trust His heart". God is in control. And a verse that was also passed on to me: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances..." those things are not always easy to do but i heard someone say once that to be joyful doesn't mean to be happy or cheerful. joy is an internal thing that has more to do with being content and trusting God than it does with the actual emotion of happiness. so i pray this for all of you (and even myself) who are struggling right now, whether it be a loss, a physical ailment, emotional turmoil or simply exhuastion. Pray continually. Give thanks for what you do have. and take it a day at a time. i don't have much but i send my love and my prayers to you from texas.

Always nice to know that people are praying.

It inspires me to pray more.

God is listening -
