The Blessing

Sometimes you must keep going.
Life punches you in the stomach.
It knocks your breath out and
leaves you bowed and gasping.

You lose a job... you must keep going.
You find out you have a serious illness...
you must keep going.
You have a headache...
you must keep going.
Sometimes the things in life are not serious,
but they affect you nevertheless...
you must keep going.

You have an argument with your spouse.
Neither of you feels like talking
and maybe not even looking at each other...
you must keep going..
Your son rebels and you have a blowout with him...
you must keep going.
The bills seem to never end
and the money seems to never start.
You must keep going.

There are times that make us just want to curl up,
stick our heads in a hole,
and make the world go away.
We can't, because we must keep going.
Life is full of those circumstances.
Many of you when you woke up this morning,
for a variety of reasons,
didn't feel like getting out of bed, but you had to.
You must keep going.

In times like those, and we all have them,
remember the blessing.
The blessing is not that we must keep going.
The blessing is that we can.

Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done -
and the devil keeps throwing it up in your face
(lying, debt, fear, hatred, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, etc.)
Whatever it is, you need to know God was standing at the window
and He saw the whole thing, He has seen your whole life.
He wants you to know that He loves you
and that you are forgiven. He's just wondering how long
you will let the devil make a slave of you.
The great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness,
He not only forgives you, but He FORGETS -
It is by God's Grace and Mercy that we are saved.
Go ahead and make the difference in someone's life today.
Share this with a friend and always remember ...

God is at the window!!!
