Praise Him in the hallway...

As you can probably note from the photographs, its raining but I'm still shooting. Ha!
Thats life though, sometimes its got to go on despite whats going on around us.
In my down moments, I'm gently reminded of my responsibilities and for that reason I have to pick myself up and get on with it. However, its been difficult lately, I've had doors of opportunity close when I thought they were meant to be open. As a result, I've faced depression, disappointment and discouragement and it hasn't been easy to get back up.
What do you do when you are knocked down and you feel like you can't get back up?

  1. Surround yourself with the right (positive) people.
  2. Remind yourself what the Word of God says - read the Bible in difficult times there is so much wisdom, truth and comfort found in it.
  3. Fix your mind - frankly speaking, when you are down and going through what seems like a storm its difficult to be positive about life but you have to dust yourself up and think positive.

God has a reason for allowing things to happen, we may never understand his wisdom, but we have to be obedient and trust in His will for our lives. Jeremiah 29 verse 11Proverbs 16 verse 1, 3, 9
Also trust that whatever is behind is most likely not meant for you and move on from it, for no good thing will He withhold, Psalms 84 verse 11
Remember that God is faithful and He will see you through.
"When he opens a door, no one can close it, and when he closes it, no one can open it. I know what you do, I know that you have a little power, you have followed my teaching and have been faithful to me. I have opened a door in front of you, which no one can close"(Revelations 3 verse 7 to 8). Wait for it, theres a door with your name on it. 
Oh, if you could just praise him!
