Strive Thriving

The feeling of being pushed on the brink of losing yourself and
just when you were about to grope your way out of the darkness
to 
start gasping for air to breathe afresh survival,
a scheming reality choked you.
That you are surrounded yet alone;
Needed but needing;
Moving but drowning;

Living yet dying. 
Hopelessly hopeful.
Quitting…

Hope in God

…and with a fervid desire to feed the pain for mundane gain, you succumb to giving up. 
Yet all of a sudden, the churning within calms as the Comforter comes, saying… 

“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
I’ve called your name.
You’re mine.

When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
 
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down…

Because I am God, your personal God,…your Savior. 
.
…That’s how much you mean to me!
 

That’s how much I love you!

GOD (Isaiah 43:1-4, The Message)

Strive thriving in living and loving HIM.
May God’s unfailing love always be your comfort.

Embracing An Enemy

Awesomely Simple and Simply Awesome

You can limit Him by thinking He can never work in spectacular ways.

But you can also limit Him by thinking that only the spectacular is meaningful.

—Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep
