Don't Give Up

 Linking up with Charlotte and Ginger at....Spiritual Sunday
Miracle make-over - For all comments left at  Design Gives Back, money will be donated for a miracle make over room for little Charlie. 

"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!" Audrey Hepburn

Some days...it seems like everything's a struggle....an uphill climb.....nothing's working...nothing's moving....life is tough...hard....even lonely. The dreams I hold....that burn inside....seem like they'll never happen.....They start...then stop....and make me feel stuck. 

But then.....I go outside....in the woods....or down to the lake....alone.....and His whisper...soft but clear....reminds me....He's there...running with me....and those dreams....He put them there. How can I be discouraged....How can I not trust....and know....that in time....His time.....

Don't give up.....I will shine to guide you......

Such an encouraging post. I think of cancer patients like Charlie, and my husband Ron... there are times when giving up seems easier. But they need to keep fighting. And that strength comes from the Lord and a circle of family and friends that love them!

I am a Grobanite!! Betcha didn't know that! I have everything he ever recorded! But I have never seen this video, I love it. Beautiful and powerful images. I am so sorry if you are going through a rough time right now, don't give up, your followers love you!

A great way to deal with the temptation of giving up, nature where we can see Him in so many things.

It's amazing the continual theme that was waiting for me as I tried to catch up in blogland today. This fit right it, and with an anthem to boot!

Stopped by after you left a comment on my blog. You don't know how much I needed to read this post tonight. Lately I have felt that my dream has died, that I have to let it go, and maybe I still do-but I needed this. It's been a rough week. Thank you.
