don't give up

this is something that i've thought a lot about. sometimes live is just too hard. sometimes the bad news really outweighs the good. sometimes i think about giving up. but sometimes, god gives you a little glimpse of hope that completely renews your strength...and in a second you can see the light that is coming for the heart that holds on.

that happened to me today. i had a talk with my boss at job #1 and he and i were trying to come up with a plan for the future. we both have a desire to be pro-active in these tumultuous economical seas...not satisfied with merely blowing from side to side at the mercy of the wind. so, what do you do? re-create. re-invent. re-look even at something that might not have been a good option before but may be now.

don't give up!

weather you are a musician, or a photographer, a preacher or a plumber....or you punch a cubical clock at a big company...we are all affected...but don't lose heart. be creative. work hard. use this time to come up with new ideas and experiment with things that maybe didn't seem possible before.

don't be afraid!

the resiliency of the human spirit is amazing...let's use it to our advantage! i hope this note encourages you. today is a new day!

take care...less of me.

Okay I'm planning... It's just that my plans always cost money!

So true, we choose how circumstances of life affect us. Sometimes negative things can bring about the greatest opportunities as well as the greatest joys. Always keep looking up, God always has our best interest at heart. It may not seem like it at the moment. It is difficult to look at life thru the eyes of Jesus, but the rewards are always there if we trust.
