Spiritual Sundays

Welcome to Spiritual Sundays hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. Should you need to be encouraged today, please visit these lovely ladies and their SS participants to be inspired. You may click on the link or the SS button on my sidebar.

This has long been one of my favourite scriptures in the Bible.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." ~ Isaiah 40:31

We all go through times of suffering and oftentimes we feel alone in our struggles but do not fear! The Lord is watching over you; you're never alone! He will give you the strength to get through whatever it is you're facing.

I love what Mary at Pile of Smiles ~ shared with us last week. The gist of her post was summed up with these three points from a book she had been reading...

When God disciplines His children; three things happen:
1. It's painful temporarily.
2. A blessing is promised from it.
3. In the end, it leads to a purpose.

Thank you Mary for sharing those three points because it sure helps to put things into perspective. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend everyone.
