I don’t know about you, but I really do cling to hope and praise to keep me going on a daily basis. And part of those frustrations manifesting in a painful back are because I was losing sight of hope. I was surrounded by a lot of complaining, avoiding, meanness, and very little praising. And I crashed. But once I realized it, once I gave the junk to Jesus, and focused back in on all of the amazingly good things going on now, and that will happen in the future, life looked a lot more sunny.
Even in the midst of a Belmond style thunderstorm/tornado warning/ flood watch (cause that’s how we roll in Wright county). LOL! Because even that storm means that it is spring and not snow, that God is wiping our land clean getting ready for another growing season, and rainbows of promise will stretch across the sky when the storm ends.
HOPE. PRAISE. It’s all in the perspective.
