Hey everybody, I know alot of you have been hurting. You've been broken down, life is rough right now. But here's some encouragement for youth at the Lord has been sharing with me. Psalm 30:4-5 Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name. For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. The morning is coming, for those who have been holding on for a long time. Keep holding on. The Lord loves you and He's bringing the morning. The night, the season you have been in is almost over so keep singing, keep praising His name. The morning is coming soon! With Spring comes new life, beauty and restoration so hold on and keep believing. Perseverance: The ability to keep going when everything is going wrong. Pressing in when everything is against you. Standing up when everything is crashing down. Keep walking when it hurts to breathe. Keep going longer than you ever thought possible wondering what keeps you alive in the pain and the heartache. Are you persevering? Keep pressing in, although you feel like you can't go on. Keep pushing through. you'll make it just don't give up He's got good plans for your life! Hope: To look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence. Hope against hope, to continue to hope, although the outlook does not look good. To keep believing when all odds are against you. To know things will get better no matter what your eyes. To believe in the unseen Do not give up hope, don't let go! Romans 5:4-6 And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans8:24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees?
