On the bottom looking upwards. Have you felt so overwhelmed by all the madness around you and folks who say that they would be there ...weren't ? I was fighting frustrations and didn't want to hear the same old tired "words of encouragement". I literally felt like I was below the bottom looking upwards. But then I looked into the "Book of Books" and found a passage that lifts. It states" We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed..." ( II Cor.4:8,9). Man what a lift !!
Then later I got another "song in the night" and had to get up to put it down before it was gone forever.
So folks, how does the minister minister to himself or herself? Find a scripture that you can hang onto. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."(Rom.8:28) Grab the lifeline that God tossed you... "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us"(Esp.3:20) and hold on for life. Are you still on the bottom looking up? Well folks I'm on the first floor now riding up, up, up!!!! Be Blessed
