We have a lot to be thankful for, even if all we are doing is breathing. There may have been a truckload of garbage dumped on you mentally, but the best way you dig your way out of it is to stand your ground. Find someone else who is worse off than you are and pour His life into them. Soon the overflow will fall onto your situation, especially when you combine it with an attitude of gratitude.
Some people living in Hawaii’s Big Island near the volcano have lost their homes, with the memories, gone forever. The lava flows have destroyed over 70 structures, 12 of them family homes. We have the privilege of helping them recover this week as we minister to some of them during the Arise Hawaii Conference May 18-19. Join us if you can at the beautiful campus of YWAM in Kona, Hawaii, all day Friday and Saturday this week. We definitely understand if this is not possible but appreciate your prayers for the 20 Diamond Girls we sponsor this week to reach a new revelation of the goodness of God. Remember to “stand your ground” and let Him show you the way out.
Blessings to you.
1 COR 15:57-58
With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort
