Keep Hiking

Do you ever feel overwhelmed or like you are standing a little to close to the edge of life? I know I certainly do. Today, I'm reminded of God's presence no matter where life takes me. There will always be scary times and unbelievable adventures this side of heaven. However, God gives us the Holy Spirit to live within us as a comforter and guide. He will  never fail us no matter how unbelievably difficult life seems.

Having the strength of Jesus within me puts new meaning in my heart to "...the joy of the Lord is my strength." Nehemiah 8:10

Join me as I embrace the strength our Creator places with within each of us. Keep hiking through this life, dear friends!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,
Andrea Bowling Perdue

Andrea, last week I wrote a post about how long I have been walking with the Lord. I became a believer when I was very young, and so the days were many!

Sometimes the journey has been difficult - uphill, rocky, and scary - but in and through it all, the Lord has always walked with me.

Yes, keep hiking. For when we reach our final destination, the view will be glorious!

We have to remember that God loves us and wants to help us through the valleys of our lives.

We also need to have people in our lives to encourage us when we feel down.
