One day at a time

one_day_at_a_time_ocean  I seem to be saying this a lot lately… Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and we’re up to bat trying to figure out what happened and what to do next.  Our entire life can change in an instant … for the better or for the worse.  Many people I know are going through times of struggle, grief, mourning, stress and despair and I feel helpless, but I keep coming back to these 5 little words … One day at a time.

To all my family & friends struggling with grief … take it one day at a time. . . Celebrate the life of the one you have lost and cherish the good memories.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.   Matthew 5:4

Life continually has its twists and turns and we all go through storms ~ some are more fierce and scary than others~  We all deal with the tough times in our own way, but know this… you are not alone.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified 
because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; 
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:5, 6

Sometimes the situation we are in is not something we are supposed to get over, it’s something we have to go through.  If we are open to it, in the process we may discover people we can count on, make new friends we would have never met otherwise, find an inner strength we never knew we had, or develop an appreciation for life we didn’t have before. 

God puts some people in our life to bring us comfort, joy, peace and love.  Look for those people in your life and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  Isaiah 40:18-31
eagle wings

Feel free to share your favorite memory of a loved one you have lost in the comment section below if you would like to.  Sometimes remembering the past helps us deal with the present and gives us hope for the future.

  1. This post reminded me of the song by Jordan Sparks:
    One step at a time there’s no need to rush
    It’s like learning to fly or falling in love
    It’s gonna happen and it’s supposed to happen
    That we find the reasons why, one step at a time

  2. It is difficult when we lose someone we love. Sometimes all we can do it take it minute by minute. Matthew 11:28
