Spiritual Sunday. "Don't Ever Give Up"

Thank you Chalotte and Ginger for hosting these Spiritual Sundays. I really appreciate posting and reading the other blogs. To participate
post and then add your name at. http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/

Christmas day my girls and I helped out all day serving people who had no one to share the day with.  I heard so many stories from people struggling with illness, loss, lonliness....Even reading some blogs...reading about some of you guys going through some tough stuff.. I wanted to encourage you.  When I was on the streets, shooting dope, throwing up, kidnapped, trapped, raped....not believing anyone cared....someone came along and told me...don't you ever give up. I wanted to. I really did. I wanted to give in to the darkness, to the hatred...but He wouldn't let me. So today, I just want to encourage those of you who are struggling to hang on....He sees - He knows....And He'll take you through.

Blessings Sarah...What an encouragement! Goes real well as an accompanying post to Charlotte's story, her SS post for today! Great song by Yolanda to NEVER GIVE UP! We all need that one person, that one nudge that keeps us keepin' on! The Everlasting HOPE...that reminds us of His Promises. I'm so thankful He knows us, see us and takes us through the storms...Great inspiration! Thanks for sharing from your heart!

Just want to thank you for coming by and for praying for me as I go to work tonight. Funny whenever you call me "Rosella"...That's what my parents intentionally wanted to name me. Unfortunately, someone messed up filling out my birth certificate :) Have a great night sister and blessings and love to you.

You have a great blog here. It's a very interesting read. I have a blog myself which provides inspiration and guidance to people all around the world. Life is hard enough, and I'm hoping for my blog to be a place where people can go to hear the words the words they need to hear in order to brighten up their day.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around. Please let me know if this is possible.

Sincerely,

Hi Sweet Sister,

You are such an encouragement to me. You have stopped by and uplifted me with your words. I thank the Lord for that, for you. You are a beautiful person on the inside and outside and to Him I give all of the glory because He shines through you. He uses you and you obey His commands.

May He bless you in all ways. May you continue to feel His presence all around you and may He bless you in ways you never thought humanly possible. You are a treasure, a gift that He has formed by His hand and that in and of itself is so absolutely beautiful, so precious just as you are, just as we are to Him.

Thank you for stepping into my life and helping me along the narrow pathway. We can only move forward with Him guiding and walking beside us every step of the way.

All praise, honor and glory is yours Almighty Father forever and ever more.

Love & Blessings,
Alleluiabelle

Sarah, you gave God's love to others; how wonderful. Happy New Year!

Sarah you have some beautiful commenters and comments here, enough, that it must be true what they are writing to you and about you.

That truth is evident in all you write. You give credit to God for whatever good happens through your effort.

Blessings to you!

What a beautiful song and the words are so important. I'm glad you didn't give up and I'm thankful that you are sharing your experiences and helping others not only in the life you are living now but in sharing it with people like us online. I'm so glad you are a part of our Spiritual Sundays family.
Blessings,

Hi Sarah,
Never give up.. These three words continues to help me through a very serious illness and makes me wake up with joy looking forward to what a new day will hold for me. It helped me through treatments and fear. Continue to share your gift, you touch hearts and encourage souls.

Sarah, I think it is so encouraging to hear that you are raising your own kids to give back and know that there are those who are far less fortunate. I hope that you and your family had a wonderful holiday. Thank you for your continued encouragement...

Happy New Year,
Jennifer
