Sometimes life can hand us situations that we would rather deny
are even real. Especially when it is completely out
of our own control.
That is when I can no longer
rely on my own human understanding.
Instead, I must believe in God's promise that
he has everything all figured out and
I can rely on Him and His plan.
"...For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord,
"Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to
give you hope and a future..."
Sometimes we have to train our HEART
to Imagine the best that is ahead.
Sometimes you even need to pick up your heart
and look it straight in the eye and say,
"Okay heart, remember your dream, the one
you imagined and hoped for?"
"It is still there."
"God sees it and he knows all about it."
"Imagine His Best!".....
.....and when we do remember to Imagine His Best,
we shine on the outside, even in spite of our gray and
not so great of circumstances, that are in the background.
That glow on you is what
brings such wonderful HOPE to others too!
....and don't worry that by imagining the best
when things are the worst, that you
won't shine forth
as a REAL and sincere person.
(I used to worry about that)
Because, what gives others Hope is seeing you
persevering through, and up and over,
because of your faith and
your belief in the midst of what you are going through
or have overcome! Your Real story will
Inspire so many!
Inspiration shows itself in so many wonderful ways.
Just like, in how I am
little butterflies in my life.
When I am sad, or afraid, they seem to fly out
of nowhere and land on my shoulder, and remind me
that I am not alone on my journey. They remind me of the
blessings that God has showered upon me during
my lifetime and of the many more He is waiting to
rain upon me.....and upon YOU.
