Just Thanks

It is late, and I am exhausted, but I couldn’t go to bed tonight without taking a minute to say thank you to all of you who commented on yesterday’s post, facebooked me, twittered at me, emailed me, sent me a carrier pigeon, whatever. Your words of encouragement are so precious.

Obviously I am in a season of life that is very difficult right now, but I am determined that Satan will not have victory in my life at this time.Your prayers and kind words have buoyed me up through difficult days, and it means so much to know that I am being lifted in prayer.

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far utweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

— from 2 Corinthians 4

Therefore we do not lose heart.

  1. I love this passage. And I’m praying for you (for real, even though I’m horrible at remembering to pray, I am going to pray for YOU as I walk through the day).
    We are not crushed or abandoned, and we have eternal glory waiting.

  2. Praying for you too, my friend. 🙂
    (Holding on to this verse for you, and for me:
    I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
    That I would see the goodness of the Lord
    In the land of the living. –Psalm 27:13)

  3. I’m so sorry that you had such a terrible day. But I’m so glad you find comfort in God, in your beautiful family and in your blogging community. Hang in there…this too shall pass.

    And thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment!

  4. Erin, just wanted to encourage you with Habakkuk 3:17-18 “Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the labor of the olive may fail, and the fields yield no food, though the flock may be cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls – Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, and he will make me walk on my high hills.” I have clung to this verse in the past and am clinging to it right now in my own life as well. God is Good!
