Just Give It Time

178

I am choosing to share this hilariously bad photograph of myself standing in an abandoned church during a downpour in Cong, Ireland. Why? Because I think a lot of us are feeling like this lately. Fed up, wet, miserable, sick of whatever it is we are going through at the time. And my lovely husband thankfully caught one of those moments on camera. 🙂

This is the same day, the same me, just about 10 minutes later.

Amazingly, the day had turned around. I was in a warm, dry cafe with the smell of fresh bread and soup wafting from the kitchen. We had just seen the John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara Quiet Man statue on our way into the cafe. And I was glad we were there, in Ireland, in the rain.

We sometimes just need to wait a few moments, or a few days, or a few months. Just give it time. This too shall pass.

Love, Lisa

Standing Firm

“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today….The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:13-14

When I am afraid…..stand firm.

When I am in trouble, the Lord will rescue.

When I need a defender, I need to be still, and let Him fight for me.

Standing firm like this round tower. A tower of strength, refuge and protection during trouble.

“In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge. For You have been my hope, O Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.” -Psalm 71:1,5

Love, Lisa

A New Day

168

A new morning begins.  Another chance to live, to love, to breathe, to be.

A new morning to be cleansed, as if standing beneath Glencar waterfall.

Be encouraged.  We have a new day.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

Great is Your faithfulness.”  – Lamentations 3:22-23

Love, Lisa
