Thankful Thursday!!!!

Proverbs 17:22 tells  us that a happy heart is good medicine, but low spirits sap ones stregnth.

I have to say this is true. Many of you are travailing at this time. While the efforts you  try  in order to make the best of a " bad" or transitional situation are to be commended. I see so many at church , at the treatment center , in the neighborhood, at the market , etc who are smiling through tears . Some times the pain  I see is so intense it causes me to interceed a lot ,and that is a good thing, but right now I want to speak a word of encouragement to you who find yourselves experiencing  emotional and spiritual fatigue.
What you are experiencing now is not because you are weak, stupid, worthless, hopeless or unlovable. What you are feeling now is isolation because you stayed out there by yourself trying to deal with it on your own and its wearing you out. You were created to be in fellowship not loneliness.

What I need you to do is take some time and fellowship with G-d. Remember what G-d has done for you, just today. And yes He has, because  we see new mercies morning by morning (Lam.3:23). Now , thank Him and praise Him for what He has done : what He faithfully continues to do.And I 'll bet you cannot stop at just today.  Are n't  you starting to feel better? Aren't your spirits starting to rise? Are you reassured that you are now more empowered to handle  enduring stressful occurences  because your spirits have been touched by The Holy Spirit??? Your situation may not have drastically changed to your liking but you know that you are not walking through it alone. And that is good medicine. Smile.
