Life presents many challenges in and of itself. I prefer not to create extra drama just to have more aggravation on a regular basis. The sign (pictured above) sits on a window sill that I pass multiple times a day in my office building. I stop and ponder once in a while, "Am I doing my part to be sure that love grows here?"
Each one of us is responsible for own joy. Life may deal us some difficult cards, but it is up to us how we play those cards. Do we want to throw in the cards and fold, or do we draw from the deck and keep striving for better days? Believe me, I know that it is easier said than done. I have had my share of struggles with remaining positive and strong during the course of some extreme personal battles. That is why I have dedicated part of my ministry to repeatedly "ARTICULATING HOPE."
I invite my readers to join with me today in praying for all those who are struggling. It does not matter what the struggle is--let's pray for healing. If you are hurting, please know that I (and all three of my readers on this blog) are praying for you. Seriously, there are consistent readers of these pages in five different states. The prayers of these people are powerful. I hope you feel lifted up today as my readers pray for you.
Blessings and peace!
