Here are a few pictures that I took yesterday-
This waterfall is fed by the overflow from a lake. It's not a big waterfall compared to some, but it's beautiful! (The picture doesn't do it justice!)
My creative juices aren't flowing right now, and I'm having a hard time thinking of something to write; I'm just feeling rather tired and melancholy! But I know this- God is good regardless of how I feel; I am so blest! Today I was feeling rather discouraged, but then I decided to count the blessings in my life and to start praising God for them. It's amazing how it works, but when I take my eyes off of my problems and start counting my blessings, my problems get smaller!
Also, I decided to make a few phone calls and send a few texts to encourage people; this is a great way to have your spirits lifted! And it's Biblical- II Corinthians 1:3-4 says, "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God." God gives us comfort in our trials; then we are to comfort others in their trials!
So next time you are discouraged, give thanks for your blessings, and find someone to encourage!
(P.S. These thoughts are not original with me; I am so grateful for those who God has placed in my to help me along the way, and who have shared these concepts with me.)
