Feel helpless? Going through difficulty? Worried?
Have you ever wished you could fly or breathe under water? Well you can’t. So suck it up! ; ) Is that a reason for you to be depressed or angry? Sometimes we feel like we’re the ones with enough reasons to get down, discouraged or disheartened. Really, it’s ALL ABOUT PERSPECTIVE. You have arms, legs, hands and feet. Meet the man who has none, but lives with a great attitude (click the link above for video).
We can have hope because this life is NOT all there is. Even if we have NOTHING we can be content. We can endure the greatest pains because we know that through faith in Christ, Heaven is coming. Hold fast to the One who is holding on to you.
I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
