One day we are going to look back on these days and we will be so glad that we didn't give up. Our perspective is like the passport to our life. Good or bad, it follows us wherever we go. Life wasn't meant to be easy and as we have recently realized it often throws twists and turns that we aren't always prepared for. I am personally focusing and hoping to encourage you to be thankful for the bad things in life because it allows us to open our eyes to see all of the good things we haven't been paying attention to before. Lately we have been given extra time and the chance to see life at face value. We get so busy that we often forget to stop and think about all of the little things that are missing our attention.
Everything we are experiencing at this moment is exactly what we have needed to feel thankful and grateful for all of the things we have in our lives. It has allowed us to see the little things and truly be grateful for their place in our lives.
Below are a few verses I wanted to share that have helped encourage me during this time and I hope that you find encouragement in them too.

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
We are living in a chaotic world right now, so please never hesitate to reach out to me if you are feeling the weight of everything going on. I am here to be an encouragement, a listening ear, let's climb this mountain of life together. We will get through this!
