Cooped up for almost 4 months – wearing a mask to pick up groceries and mulling over all sorts of thoughts and emotions, I have found myself pondering words that came off the press almost 3 years ago……when my spirit was revved up and ready to reach for the stars.
The essence of what I wrote back then was to avoid all defeatist thoughts and negative advice and move forward with your dreams. If you fail, so what. At least you tried.
Life is full of “tries”. Not everything we do gets applauds or has significant outcomes. But the “try” is worth the power and the plan that inspires us, even if the results may never be known. For instance, that smile you gave to someone passing you may have been the thing that kept their hopes going. Who knows that a smile or a sweet word can do?
If Corona keeps going – if destruction continues to mount across our country – if finances tumble – if hunger comes….we have one sure promise: God will never leave those who put their trust in Him.
“I would have fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD… So I wait on Him and take courage, and He strengthens my heart as I wait.”
During World War II, when it looked like the enemy might win, Roosevelt said we have nothing to fear but fear itself. That meant for Americans to keep pushing forward with hope – keep projecting your thoughts into all that inspires and gives you hope — and believe that you have what you dream of. This is good medicine for the soul!
