Mclinky Blog Hop ~ An Encouraging Word

Let's Face it, life can be really hard sometimes. In fact, it can be just plan difficult. I don't know about you, but I have faced some really tough times. God never promised that life would be easy sailing, he promised he would be with us along the way.

I grew up in the church, and I personally acepted Christ as my Saviour at the age of 11. I have always believed that he was there and would take care of me. He has always been there for me and picks me up when life just gets too hard.

Here are a couple of Scriptures that often help me when I am down.

Isaiah 40:31 (New International Version)
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (New International Version)
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

As you can see, hoping and trusting in the Lord are key to living life. He will bring us strength to carry on. When we are trusting in Him and acknowledge him in our lives he will direct our way.

If you do not have your Hope in this Everlasting God, I invite you to do so today. I could not imagine facing life without him.

I have enjoyed this song by Chris Tomlin recently. It reminds me that I will receive strength as I wait upon the Lord. He Reigns Forever, He is my Strong Deliverer, He is the Everlasting God!
