Discouraged?

I saw this image on one of my niece's profiles and it resonated with me so I thought I would share it with you and encourage you that no matter where you feel you are today, in the dumps, sad and frustrated, or flying as high as a flag with joy and peace, know that God is always with you and His heart is always for you.


We don't always see why we go through what we go through.  Sometimes its so God would have us sink our roots down deeper into His living water, His word!  Sometimes its to correct us!  Sometimes its to protect us and divert us from trouble ahead that only He can see.  The thing is to trust that whatever you are going through, He is there, He does care, and He cries with you.

Duet 31 v 6:  "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them;  for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you.  He will not leave you nor forsake you."

Duet 31 v 8:  "And the Lord, He is the one who goes before you.  He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you;  do not fear nor be dismayed."

Double dose of the word just for reinforcement!  :)

God bless and be encouraged today friends

  1. Perfect words for my week last week. My husband and I were evacuated from our home on Wednesday due to a raging wildfire that came less than a mile from our home. God gave us a sense of peace, and He helped the firefighters save our home and our town. (I think there might have been some angels flapping wings against the flames!!) We were finally able to come home on Sunday night.

    God was with us in a mighty way - and I am encouraged to know that no matter what had happened - HE WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US!

    GOD BLESS!

  3. Dear Tracy
    Oh, just to know that the Creator of Heaven and earth lives in us, walks with us and never leaves us, is enough to make discouragement vanish like mist in the sun!

  9. God is with us and in us, and he knows the beginning and the ending. Our trust in HIM is the factor that will keep us afloat when we seem to think we are sinking. Thanks for sharing at "Tell Me a Story."

  11. Beautiful & encouraging words. Thank you for the reminder that we do not always see or know why. But we can always trust that God is good. I was your neighbor at the TGIF link up.
