in returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength. (*)
afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed... (*)
we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself... but that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. (*)
the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (*)
look up, even if it's pouring down rain.
if i put my head down even for a second i'll fall flat on my face.
gotta keep looking up.
looking to jesus.
