When it seems like we are "down to nothing", we should believe that GOD is "up to something". "'Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to GOD; "' ~ PHILIPPIANS 4:6 NKJV

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees. — Victor Hugo --- "'What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also."' ~ 1 CORINTHIANS 14:15

We are to rejoice in our inheritance in Heaven even as GOD sovereignly uses difficulties in our lives as a fire to refine, purify, and strengthen our faith. —Randy Alcorn ~ "'Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.”' ~ 1 CHRONICLES 16:31 NKJV

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin ~ "'Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."' ~ HEBREWS 4:16 NKJV
