HOPE BEGINS IN THE DARK!!!

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Many times, late at night we began to think of all the things that are going wrong in our lives; especially if we are ill. It is very important that we do not give up hope because no matter how long the night is, dawn will eventually come. Things always look better in the light of day. I know that I am guilty of this. Sometimes it is hard to get to sleep because we are thinking too much! Usually what I do is PRAY!!! That always gets me through and I know that God will never desert me. I pray that all of you, my spark friends, are having a great weekend; and that you never give up hope!!! This quote by Annie Lamott says it best: "HOPE BEGINS IN THE DARK........IF YOU JUST SHOW UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING, THE DAWN WILL COME."

    When I was preparing for surgery last week, one of my friends asked if I ever said breath prayers. I responded that I didn't know what she meant. She said...A breath prayer is one of few words that can be said in one breath, are from the heart, and are very powerful prayers...i.e. Help me, Lord., Thank you, Lord., Please be with me. You know my needs. As I thought back over that, I realize I say breath prayers all the time and they do indeed come from the heart and are short and to the point.
    Thank you, Lord, for answered prayers.

    The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
    Psalm 9: 9

    Never give up hope! Pray believing that your prayers will be answered and never let your faith be weakened. emoticon

    My darkness is very dark right now. I am having a hard time keeping my hopes up now. Things are looking prety grim. I pray but i am losing heart.
