survival of the moment

"When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider:  God has made the one as well as the other." Ecclesiastes 7:14

Book Fair... this past Tuesday i doubted my survival for the long, busy week ahead.  And during yesterday's packed  Family Night, my anxiety teetered back and forth.  Focusing just on the one person before me -- ringing up one book at the time -- kept me calm. Two hours later the crowd dispersed, the lights flipped off and a warm dinner filled my belly. We survived, and it was good.

When the path before us is gray and desolate....

remember, it will not stay that way.

God desires to fill our lives with His blessings.  He takes our bleakest seasons and still creates breathtaking moments.  No season lasts for a lifetime, even the good ones. When we are faced with harsh times, God in His goodness provides a glimpse of what's to come.  A sweet reminder to encourage our hearts -- we are not forgotten.  

Tough day? Tough week?  Look around. God surrounds us with His promise this season will past.  What  appears unbearable, it not.  God has the power to bring good out of all times, including bad ones.

Believe... take life one day at a time, and be filled with the warmth of His Light and Love.  We will survive the moment, and it will be good.

have a peace-filled day!
