Never Give Up
from When I 'm On My Knees, devotional thoughts on Prayer for Women, by Anita Corrine Donihue
believe you're crushed, you are.
defy not the odds, you lose.
claim not the victory, you fail.
settle for one goal, you grow stagnant.
But when you
learn from the struggles, you resolve.
ignore the put downs, you grow.
choose success, you soar.
believe in yourself, you gain confidence.
accept Christ, you gain strength.
toil unceasingly, you achieve.
press on, you are enriched.
fall and start over, you win.
When you do all this, you shall gain life's prize.
This has been a difficult couple of weeks for me physically and emotionally. I was looking at the glass half empty instead of half full. So many times I doubt the title of my own blog! Beelieve You Can! I am so thankful that with my God all things are possible! "Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26.
Oh I thank you and praise you Lord for your patience, loving kindness, forgiveness, mercy and grace! I get discouraged and down on myself far too often! Help me Lord to remember your promises. Help me Lord to press on when I want to give up! In Jesus Precious name, Amen.
Listen to this Amazing 7 year old girl sing Amazing Grace! She just lifted my spirits so high I am singing and rejoicing with her! Wow!!
Please mute my music at bottom left side of blog. Thank you.. Be Blessed!
OH sister...I was THERE! Yesterday. Such a hard day. Physically tasking. I suddenly remembered all of my autoimmune diseases and my age when the day was through. Just so tired. Wanted to lie down and go home to heaven. Wanted to quit. Jesus alone kept me going on...cleaning the house when I returned...doing things I needed to do. I wish my attitude had been better. I am grateful for His blood. I am so grateful that He remembers that I am dust. Hugs sweet sister.
I think we have all been there and will be there again. The thing is he is there also and being christian he will show us that he is and everything will be fine because he is in control. I dont know what I would do if I didnt have him, in those times. So thankful he is always with me. I seen that video the other day and how Beautiful is her little voice so powerful to be so young.
God Bless you
I totally understand sis, God sweetly bless you. I love you.
Just wanted you to know I appreciate your sweet comments and encouragement. I hope you have a restful sleep and feel wonderful tomorrow.
I like that devotion...love seeing contrasts like that to help focus on the positive...
Praying your prayer with you....
