“Everybody’s been down;
Hit the bottom, hit the ground,
Ooh, you’re not alone.
Just take a breath, don’t forget,
Hang on to His promises
He wants you to know.” *
This morning on my way into work, I heard this song, and although it’s been #1 on the charts for many weeks in the past year, I never really took time to listen to all the words. They really are good!
So, the question is will you stay “down and out” or come up and over? Will you allow God to take your trials?
“Take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises!” *
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. – (Philippians 4:19 NIV)
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. – (John 14:12-14 NIV)
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. – (Matthew 7:7-8 NIV)
