This kitty's face shows how I felt several months ago when I snapped this photo. I saw the kitty in the window and thought, 'this is how I feel and it would make a good post someday.' I felt so discouraged that day that I never put up the post.
. Since I have always turned to the Lord in these times and He has always been faithful to bring me through and lift me up, I thought I'd share about it when I was feeling good for a change.
I do believe many of the down times come from discouraging thoughts; not always, but sometimes. Some of you are going through hard times. Many difficult times make us feel like there is no hope. I want to recommend this workbook by Beth Moore called Breaking Free. It has changed my life and I have been able to get out of those terrible dark cloudy days (inside my head), by reading my Bible and praying and with the help of Beth Moore.
I am going to go right now and read my Bible before the kids wake up. I need the help of my Heavenly Father, just to get through each day's trials and troubles. He will help me and He will never leave me. Every problem He allows into my life is an opportunity for my faith, which is worth far more than gold, to grow. I am sorry if you are going through struggles and difficulties right now. I hope you can find strength and encouragement in the Lord and His Word. Love, Kathi "Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee; and thou shalt glorify Me." Psalm 50:15
