Happy Thanksgiving from me and mine to you and yours. Wishing you enough...
“Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 kings 6:16-17
Just like Elisha's servant we need to ask GOD to open our eyes during the difficult times so that we can see the warriors there to defend us. Often times we feel alone in our defeat but we are only viewing our circumstances through our earthly eyes. If we could see the heavenly hosts that are called to our aid we would no longer fear our trials but instead embrace them. Take heart that you are not alone. During your dark times, close your eyes and listen for the rustling of the horses and chariots of fire...THEN know that GOD has ALWAYS got your back.
As Annie sings..the sun WILL come up tomorrow. Over the last 10 months the universe has been handing me a royal a$$ whooping. I've been dealt a hand that I didn't really want. It peaked with me sleeping on an air mattress in my parents living room. I was handed defeat after defeat. I was at the bottom. I lost my job, my wife left me for another, I couldn't keep my kids because I was sleeping on the floor of my parents house. But as low as I got one thing was always clear. The sun rose the next day. Maybe GOD has given us a perpetual sign of faith. The SON always rises. Jesus died and rose again. So no matter how bad things get always know the sun always rises on a brand new day. Dust yourself off. Pick yourself up. Get back in the game. Each new day is a brand new canvas to paint your future.
