The Weekend Brew

There is beauty all around us. even in the messes of life, there is beauty. How can that be? Because, God can take the mess, and make a beautiful message from it.  If you are stuck in the middle of an ugly mess right now, please do not give up. Things can, and will get better. I was recently in the dark pit of hell, the smell of burnt ashes surrounded me. I did not think I could escape, I tried to kill myself. But, guess what? God came to my rescue, as always. He pulled me out of the pit, set me on solid ground. He took my smelly, ugly ashes, and replaced them with beauty. Do not give up, look up, your redemption draws near.

   Morning ((hug))- thanks for dropping by my blog yesterday for Five Minute Friday. What a blessing to meet you!

I was reading my Bible this morning and this verse really spoke to my heart. Maybe it will yours too?

Hebrews 10:35-36
 35So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! 36Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised. +

Thanking God for today and for a new friend :) praying He blesses you in a special way today!
