Do you ever feel like you can’t get back to normality after a tough day, or week, or month has gone by. I sure had to endure that years ago from a brain illness I experienced. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, and now, years later, I still have to deal with memory problems. Even though I have not recovered 100%, God gets much credit for helping me, as the quote says, ‘grin and bear it‘.

When To Let ‘YES’ Win – Song #1

       Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 5.13.25 PM.png

Have you ever had something you’ve been thinking of doing?

thinking

“Should I? I don’t really have time. I shouldn’t. But . . . but I want to. No, I shouldn’t. But maybe I should force myself. No. Don’t. Time just isn’t there. BUT I REALY WANT TO!”

Why?

I wish I was one who could say I feel like dancing, smiling ear to ear, as each day goes by. But honestly, as of late, some days I don’t even feel like walking. I’ve been finding myself thinking
‘Are you sure about this, Lord? It sure doesn’t seem what happened to my callorbone six weeks ago exactly fits into a comfortable plan I prefer.’

No Impossible

Pushing rock up hill showing hard work

Has it been a bit harder for you resently? Maybe it’s a bit tougher with work, family, finances, or some simple ailment you’d love to quickly pass by. Those are just a few of the many things that can make us feel drained.

Or, maybe it’s been one huge ordeal. Perhaps someone you love is going through some major illness. Either way, we know a smile can be a bit harder to see in our own mirror, feeling we can’t do what’s needed on our own.

I’ve been a bit overflowing with different things on my ‘Must Do’ list lately. A goal has been staring me in the face, making me feel a bit more drained day after day. Nothing that will decide the rest of my life, thankfully, but a few this-and that’s that have been rather wearing. A bit too much feeling like I’ve been staring at a giant.

I had to keep telling myself that, even though things haven’t been going picture perfect with my attempts, I still believe God is somehow going to show He’s there. I know the silence will end. But when? But How?

Thankfully, a few incredibly helpful means popped up that turned my worry into WHOO HOO ! A few different problems got solved in the blink of an eye a few days ago! Thank You God began filling my thoughts, right along with the words Oh, what a relief!

That next morning I was running more joy-filled then resent past runs because of what God had me discover the day before. On my way back home, this song showed up on my i-pod. It sure stood out, because it reminded me, again, that my Lord had been with me throughout this entire project.

I now want to encourage you to believe that, if you trust God, there is no war He can’t win. No wall He won’t break through. Things often feel too much for you and me, from smaller to major projects or problems. He knows the battles you and I feel we are going through; small, huge, or in between. He’s there. Things may seem impossible for us, but you and I must remember … there is no impossible with God.

There is another reason this song stood out to me. I’ll be sharing that next week.

Can you recall a time when things in life were going, for the most part, pretty smooth.  I bet you can. But I also bet you can recall a certain time things were not going quite as peace-filled as you would have liked. We all have. Continue reading “Remember To Remember-Part 1”
