16-May-2017 : Rise Above

“Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42:5‬

Yes our souls can be in despair, blue, heartsick and gloomy. When the storm hits, the eagle strengthens and sharpens its flying capability by soaring higher against the storm. It reaches a point, where it rises so high to glide in that turmoil-weather.
We overcome when we rise above to the Truth in the Word of God, *when we praise even in the midst of cracked voice,* when we give to the point we may have nothing left or won’t hear a “thank you” back, when we love like Jesus and believe that He alone will reward our genuineness..
A crushed rose  pours perfume of praise in its truest form;
A cracked pot emits light from every side, 
A seed that falls to the ground becomes a tree of shelter.
So when your soul is downcast dear child, remember that there is a choice for you to praise; and believe the fragrance of Christ in you will reach to many, to transform their lives and yours too. Rise against this storm, with a praise that the Lord puts in your mouth. Come to a point where you glide into the winds blown from God.
