You Are Not Alone

“I Am Not Alone” by Kari Jobe, is one of my favorite songs. The lyrics speak deeply to my soul. If you have never heard it, go to You Tube. Here are some of the lyrics.

When I walk through deep water. I know you will be with me. When I’m standing in fire, I will not be overcome. Through the valley of the shadow, I will not fear.

I AM not alone. I AM not alone. You will go before me. You will never leave me. I AM not alone.

In the midst of deep sorry I see your light is breaking through. The dark of night will not over take me. I am pressing into you. Lord you will fight my every battle. And I will not fear!

I AM not alone. You will go before me. You will never leave me. I AM not alone.

You’re my strength. You’re my defender. You’re my refuge in the storm. Through my trials you have ALWAYS been faithful. You bring healing to my soul! I AM not alone. You will go before me. You will never leave me. I AM not alone.

How powerful are those words? VERY! I get goosebumps.

I recently posted something personal on my FB page regarding the trials I am facing right now.  One of my dear friend Harold in Florida, gently reminded me how many people love and support me and added “You are not alone!”  What he said touched me so deeply. I began to cry.  I AM not ALONE!  Neither are you.  If you are going through something, remember – YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You will get through this. ((hugs and kisses))

Love and light!

Life is Good

life is goo“Thank you God, for this good life and forgive us if we don’t love it enough.” ~ Garrison Keillor

My motto lately is that life is good. LIFE IS GOOD – it really is. It all depends how we look at life. Are we looking through negative glasses or positive glasses.

I recently went to the eye doctor to get contacts. And of course, my vision has changed in the past 2 years since I’ve seen him. He is always been a quiet, reserved kind of doctor. But I had the pleasure of making him laugh out loud about something I said about my age and eyesight being hand in hand. He busted out laughing because he is the same age as I am! Who knew?? (smile)

But getting back to the story – I thought is was funny that my eye sight is negative to wear contacts, but to get reading glasses I have to buy positive glasses!?!  Now how confusing is that? Well not really confusing. If I am wearing negative contacts I need to counter act that with a positive to read. Isn’t life exactly like that too? Sometimes we need to think about the positive when we are in a negative situation or a bad time in our lives. This is what I know….We chose what glasses to put on and in that choice, we will either surround ourselves with more negatives or more positives. I personally choose the POSITIVE.

When you are having a rough time, going through a storm, dealing with difficult people, or even just feeling down – say to yourself  “What glasses am I wearing right now?”  “I can’t see clearly with those glasses on, so I’m switching to the other glasses!”

Always know – you will make it through whatever problem you are going through. It is part of life. It is a part of growing your soul. But you can choose what glasses to wear!!!

Love and Light,
