I have this 'Happy Valentine's Day' balloon that is still floating in our living room...from last year!
That's right...for more than 365 days, this balloon has been wishing us a Happy Valentine's Day every time we walk through the door!
Just 2 months ago, my husband gave me a handful of balloons for the 2021 Valentine’s celebration, but the majority of them have deflated...leaving the powerful - 2020 Celebration balloon to remain standing.
I want to talk about Still Standing through it all.
I want to talk about resilience.
I want to talk about lasting while those around us…. deflate.
Here are some verses to encourage you:
Isaiah 40:29, “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
Psalm 31:24, “Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.”
Isaiah 26:3,“You will keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
2 Corinthians 1:20 " For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God."
John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid."
I will encourage you to stand on God's Promises and do not let the breakdown of everyday life deflate your spirit. Be that special one who resists the enemy, stands strong and refuses to quit.
And for those who have walked through some dark days and still cling to their God…well, you are an inspiration!
If you need prayer for anything, let me know. I would love to pray for you!
