Set aside, for this moment, whatever has got you down …
and simply begin to lift God up through praise, worship, and adoration.
Thank Him for the things He has given;
Thank Him for the things He has withheld.
Thank Him for the things He has brought you through;
Thank Him for the things He still is going to do.
Thank Him for His goodness in your life;
That in spite of all you’ve done,
And in spite of where you’ve been,
In light of who God is …
You still are loved.

God desires for His glory to be recognized and revealed through your life.
However impossible this may seem to you … God remains bigger than you.
He has the power to redirect, restore, and renew every single arena of your life and make you whole again.
Give yourself over to Him, back to Him, and up to Him.
He’s calling you … He loves you.
Respond to Him.

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior ..."
Isaiah 43:1-3
