“Our strength may fail, but our God will not.”  ~unknown

When I don’t know, God does.

When I am tired, God’s not.

When I hurt, God carries me.

When I cry, God dries my tears.

 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you ~Deuteronomy 31:6

Blessings for your day today, Lisa

“My lover spoke and said to me, ‘Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.  See!  The winter is past, the rains are over and gone.  Flowers appear on the earth, the season of singing has come….Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.’ ” ~Song of Songs 2:10-12,13b

“Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but joy comes with the morning.” ~Psalm 30:5b ESV

No matter what we go through, it will eventually get better.  Around the dark clouds, behind them somewhere, lies the sun in all its brilliance and warmth.  Underneath the cold ground of winter lie the buds and blooms of spring just waiting to break forth.  Waiting, praying, hoping.  Never giving up listening to the Voice of love.  Blessings, Lisa

Listening with Love

So many hurting people, so much overwhelming sense of “what can I do?”  My heart has been aching for those people I will maybe never know who are hurting, right now, in some way that I don’t know.  I want to help.  I am praying, I am crying out to God to touch them in the way that only He can.  I am asking Him to help me not to judge, only to love.  Not to give hurting people clichéd, tired answers to their problems, but just to listen, to put a hand on theirs.  Because we all have been sad, we’ve all been hurt, we all need help.  If you’re hurting today, please know that even though I may not know you, I’m praying for you.  If you want to write, I’ll write back.  Love, Lisa

  “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as have a broken spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him from them all.” ~Psalm 34:18

“I have found the paradox,
that if you love until it hurts,
there can be no more hurt, only more love.”
~Mother Teresa
