Oh despondent soul, you need not walk alone. A life of broken dreams is not peculiar to you. We live in a fallen world, none of us are immune to negative influences in our life. Stop, Look, and Listen. STOP hiding and wallowing in self-pity. LOOK around and ask for direction, then LISTEN and keep moving.
Sometimes there's no better place to be than upside down because the only way to look is up. Even the soles of our feet are laid bare before the Lord and open to His direction.
Life is like photography, it develops from the negatives. Don't despair. Life is a collection of photos in our album of life, not just one snapshot. We all must pass through the darkroom, but the outcome will be a testimony to God's glory.
"I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord." ~ Psalm 27:13,14
