Be Encouraged!

Be encouraged! What a statement! But what if you’re someone who is so down that it would take a miracle to get you up? You’ve probably heard this before, but tomorrow is a brand new day.

Remember the weather, the storms do pass, but it’s those moments, when you are in them that seem like an eternity. The sun is still shining in the midst of the storm, it is just blocked from our vision. The earth is still the same and when the water droplets dissipate and the wind stills to a whisper, it will be another brand new day. A day just waiting for you to start again, mold it and create into whatever masterpiece is waiting for you, just like an artist. Father created you, He cares and He knows how to help you. He wants you to have a brand new start. You are precious, even more so than all the flowers in the world or even the animals. He’ll give you a sign in the skies, maybe a rainbow to symbolize the storm is over. Maybe you’ll get a special parking place. Maybe the traffic lights will turn green. Maybe you’ll just see something funny and laugh for a minute or two and forget for a moment. Just remember, you are not alone. If you call out to Him, He will hear you. How do I know? Because I’ve been there more times than I can remember and I’m still here and it gets better. There were many times I didn’t want to go on for another day. Read more
