Today, I want to post a song to encourage you called You Lift Me Up by The Afters. This song is pretty off the hook if you ask me 😉 . Sometimes life can be filled with ups and downs, but when you have God on your side, He is able to turn your upside downs into upside ups. You just have to lean on Him more and Trust Him all the more. In life you may face different kinds of adversities, but it is your faith in God that will keep you standing through your storms.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
9 Proclaim this among the nations:“Prepare for war!
Wake up the mighty men,
Let all the men of war draw near,
Let them come up.
10 Beat your plowshares into swords
And your pruning hooks into spears;
Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”
11 Assemble and come, all you nations,
And gather together all around.
Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O Lord.
With God on your side, nothing is impossible to those that believe. I know that with all that I’ve been through, I’ve come to a place where I just have to set aside my pride and be thankful for all that God has done in my life. I’m thankful for the small things because we can take even the smallest things for granted. We kind of live with a presumption that “we have all the time in the world to do this or that….” but is that really true?
Each day is a gift from God, but does it have to take a trial to make us see that? Does disaster have to strike us so that we can be truly thankful for the very things we do have in our lives. What will move you to not take each day for granted? I believe that God gives us chances to seize each day to do something that’s outside our comfort zone whether it be reaching out to a stranger, or be a listening ear to someone you love or be the hand that reaches out to the lost that need a helping hand. We are the solutions to other people’s needs and we are the prayers waiting to be answered by other people. Sometimes people feel a personal dissatisfaction with their lives because they haven’t fulfilled their true potential to be what God designed them to be, and that is to be the answer for that someone else that needs to know that God is in fact real and His love extends to those that need Him. Stepping out isn’t always easy to do, but this is what we need to do in order to satisfy the call in our lives. We are the answer to the worlds problems. We are the love that others seek. We are the hands that feed the needy. We are lights unto this dark dark world that needs to know that Jesus is in fact the Truth, the Life and the Way. He is the World’s Saviour. As we ask the Lord to Lift us up, let us embrace Him and not be ashamed of the Gospel and share this love to others that do not know Him. We are the answers that the World seeks, we just need to step out of the closet and shed some light in the darkness so that people can comprehend that God is in fact Real and that He loves everybody, Amen! I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀
