“No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting.” ~ Mary Wortley Montagu (Photo by selftail0redmess)
God has a plan to take every adversity, every hardship you go through and use it–not to beat you down and make your life miserable. No, God’s dream is to take that difficulty and supernaturally turn it around and use it to bring you good. He will use those tough times to bring you out stronger, more mature, and prepared for promotion! Goodness, mercy, and unfailing love are God’s plan for you!
You may not understand everything that’s going on in your life right now, but I encourage you to keep your head held high. Know that God is working in your life. Keep being faithful. Keep doing the right thing knowing that in the end God is going to turn things around in your favor. If God is for you, who can be against you? No one. Greater is the One who is in you than anyone who can be against you. No matter what’s going on around you today, you can put your shoulders back and put a smile on your face because God has good things in store for your future!

I don’t usually post whole comics, but this is just too great. Paste this to your mirror. Read it like a weekly devotional. Sit and really think about the true meaning of “reward”, and what’s “rewarding” to you will become quite a bit clearer.
Leakey’s Second Hand Bookshop, Inverness, Scotland. Leakey’s is Scotland’s largest second-hand bookstore. Opened in 1972 and formerly home to St Mary’s Gaelic Church (built 1792), the historic premises are a perfect environment to browse through rows of tall wooden shelves stuffed with books on every subject imaginable.

ABOUTJourneying through life, I'm learning that there is still so much for me to discover and although what I know and who I am may not amount to much right now, there's one thing I know for certain: a King died for me so that I can live out His story through the challenges I face and the opportunities that will come my way.
