Even though I might be discouraged right now....


”I have read of a man who, journeying on a winter's day through the deep, drifted
snow, became benumbed by the cold, which was almost imperceptibly stealing away his vital powers. And as he was nearly chilled to death by the embrace of the frost
king, and about to give up the struggle for life, he heard the moans of a brother
traveler, who was perishing with cold, as he was about to perish. His sympathy was aroused, and he determined to rescue him. He chafed the ice-clad limbs of the unfortunate man, and after considerable effort, raised him to his
feet; and as he could not stand, he bore him in sympathizing arms through the very drifts he had thought he could never succeed in getting through alone. And when he had borne his fellow-traveler to a place of safety, the truth flashed home to him that in saving his
neighbor he had saved himself also. His earnest efforts to save another quickened
the blood which was freezing in his own veins, and created a healthful warmth in
the extremities of his body.”  {GW92 46.1}


I have a lot to learn from that!!

Even though I might be discouraged right now, I know that there are people that have it worse then I do!!

When I think that I cannot take another step, and I think that there is no hope,
and I feel like giving up, that’s when I need to look for someone that needs help, and encouragement, then I will forget about what I’m going through, and all I will think about is saving the other souls that are perishing, and in so doing I will encourage myself!

Oh, Lord, help me not to give up, when there are others that need you!!

Help me to love you with all my heart!

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3-5-5

  3. Absolutely true, Arron! When we help others, we also help ourselves! If we selfishly keep our capabilities to ourselves, we will die!
