  1. Thanks for the wonderful and encouraging post; I especially love the scriptural references and your strategy tips! 🙂

    That is so true about how God gives us free-will. You have to want to be healthy to be healthy. I find that whenever there is stress, discouragement or doubt (and even when there isn’t) – to pray often.

    I like how you remind us here to keep the faith, even when we don’t always understand what is going on, or whatever is stressing us. It reminds me of a quote from “Miracle on 34th Street,” in which is, “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”


  2. And what an encouraging statement for me to hear, thank you!

    A few thoughts occurred to me regarding your comment. One, if we ask our spouse, “Do you love me?” and they reply “Of course I do.” it doesn’t mean as much as if they say it with a hug “out of the blue,” does it? Same with God. We must lovingly offer ourselves to Him freely.

    Second, looking back, a pathway that seemed so questioning or cruel at first makes perfect sense in retrospect and we wonder, “Why didn’t I see it then???” Because we see through a glass darkly and many times we miss the reason now, but in heaven all will be revealed. Overcoming trials make us stronger. We must figure out solutions on our own so we remember and value each, building confidence through those decisions.

    Third, I love that statement from Mo34S and hope others picked up on it. Exactly right, Rhaps.


  3. You’re very welcome, Ellie! 🙂 I’m so glad.

    Exactly. It’s hard to learn in the middle of a trial or stress, but if we pray and ask for wisdom and strength, He always helps us to learn valuable lessons at just the right moment, if we stretch our faith and hold on.

    Aww, thanks! I hope so too. It’s always been a favorite quote of mine from the movie. 🙂


  4. I just like the valuable info you provide on your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and test again here frequently. I’m somewhat sure I’ll learn many new stuff proper here! Good luck for the following!


    • Oh Brenda, you are always an inspiration to me and your comment means so much, thank you. As one who works in mental health, you must see how so many today are afraid to admit they need help, perceiving it’ll be seen as a sign of weakness. Actually reaching out, asking for prayerful encouragement is one of the strongest things one can do! 2 Corinthians 12: 9,10.
