Linking up with Charlotte and Ginger who every week host Spiritual Sunday
“Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.” Elie WieselI recently spoke to a group about the kindness of strangers. I have never forgotten the people....strangers....who reached out to me.....made a difference in my life....with their kindness. Although I never thought about it at the time....those people gave me hope. They believed in me. They helped me to not give up....to keep fighting. They made me believe things could change.
Hope - without it there's no reason to go on on.
Hope....it's what pushes us into believing things will somehow work out....that there's light at the end of the tunnel.
Hope pushes back despair and gives strength and courage to keep moving forward towards what we want.....and need.
Hope...it comes from Him...knowing He's always there...in my corner....His Word affirming the possiblities...but it also comes from others. A simple word....a reminder they're in my corner....that they believe in me....a phone call or email to say they're praying....all gives hope.
I want to always give others the hope to climb out of despair...to believe for the impossible.....to keep aiming for the inprobable.....I want to show that giving up is never an option.
A bloggy friend - Gaye, needs prayer. She's been standing strong in her faith.....believing for total healing from pancreatic cancer.. Earlier this week she emailed me......the tumor has grown by 30%, .
Guys.....please pray for Gaye....
so I lay my head back down and I lift my hands and pray......
