Hope For Today! The Best Is Yet To Come!

JESUS CALLING! 🙏 

SELF-PITY IS A SLIMY, BOTTOMLESS PIT. 

Once you fall in, you tend to go deeper and deeper into the mire. As you slide down those slippery walls, you are well on your way to depression, and the darkness is profound.

Your only hope is to look up and see the Light of My Presence shining down on you. Though the Light looks dim from your perspective, deep in the pit, those rays of hope can reach you at any depth. While you focus on Me in trust, you rise ever so slowly out of the abyss of despair. Finally, you can reach up and grasp My hand. I will pull you out into the Light again. I will gently cleanse you, washing off the clinging mire. I will cover you with My righteousness and walk with you down the path of Life.

PSALM 40:2-3

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭40‬:‭2‬-‭3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

PSALM 42:5 (NASB)

“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42‬:‭5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

PSALM 147:11

🌟 DREAM BIG! 🌟 

As Todd & I share our testimony our goal is to change a life. By doing that we encourage others to change a life too. We share how we need to be the hands and feet of Jesus when others have no Hope. We need to show Christ’s love through our actions and giving our time and love to those in our lives. 

Jesus Calling talks about self-pity and how it is a slimy bottomless pit and that leads to depression. I’m talking to myself as much as you.  When you change a life, it will change your life because you are not living in self-pity, you are giving of yourself to others. 

I have such Big Dreams for our lives but the impossible dreams are God size dreams. They are not about us but about changing the lives of others. 

How do you change the world?  

One act of random kindness at a time!  

Be the change in someone’s life today!

Enjoy the Journey!

Live with Passion!

Many Blessings!
