A Collection of Inspiration from A Blog That No Longer Is …

It is with much regret that I have decided to close down http://www.songlyricsfromlovesheart.wordpress.com and http://www.dailyhugsforthosewithinvisibleillness.wordpress.com.

I will continue to post on this site (the base from which all my writing has flowed) and pray that this will not ‘inconvenience’ any of my precious followers. God bless. Here are my posts from ‘daily hugs’ that did ‘make it through’ …

DAILY HUGS FOR THOSE WITH INVISIBLE ILLNESS


Sometimes the gentle breeze of the morning holds the sweet melody of blessings on the way
We have no idea what the day will hold; but if we let that breeze wash over us, our trials will be softened
‘Cause little butterflies of hope will stay with us
Little butterflies trapped within the songs released

Sometimes the one giving the hugs will be the one needing a hug

When you feel the same day after day after day and symptoms just won’t let up …. smile, ’cause you could feel much worse

Look through your tears and see the rainbow … there is always something you can be thankful for

“Oh! I’m sheltering in the shadows of His everlasting arms
I may feel defeated
But by faith I’ll carry on
Yes by faith, I’ll carry on”

When you feel like your life is a blank canvas compared to those who surround you, always remember that there is Someone who can beautifully take the “im” out of impossible and make all things possible, Someone who can paint the most glorious life story and place you in the starring role.

DAILY HUGS FOR THOSE WITH INVISIBLE ILLNESS


Try not to be offended or too upset when receiving comments or bearing frustrations from those who just don’t understand. They may be your loved ones, friends or a passersby, their words may hurt and hurt deep; but they really cannot understand unless they’ve been through it themselves or are in the midst of it … I know it’s not easy

‘Tis only when in the valley of illness that the mountain seems insurmountable
‘Tis only when you take that first step toward it, that it will loom so much larger
‘Tis only when you begin to climb and take control (don’t give up) that what rises before you, diminishes
‘Tis only when you reach the top
that hope rejoices,
pain is captured,
you’re no longer captive to the suffering
and
you’ll finally realize how far you have come
May you be strengthened to be able to take that first step …
(please know that by ‘step’ I mean leap of faith and not physically stepping … I understand that many of you with chronic, invisible illness are unable to walk or do so with much difficulty)

May every tear make you stronger, every setback give you the courage to push further forward and in every moment of pain, may you be comforted
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4 KJV

Dear hurting ones, my heart sheds a little part of me knowing that there are some of you who feel absolutely hopeless, or that the circumstances you find yourself in seem hopeless. I know what it feels like to lose so much all at once when one finds themselves in the ‘too hard box’ of invisible illness … so many areas of your life snatched away in one ‘where did that come from’ swoop … your life is totally changed and fight against it you may; but you must allow the ‘resting’ phase of your life to strengthen and validate who you truly are
… you are loved

DAILY HUGS FOR THOSE WITH INVISIBLE ILLNESS

Your life is unfolding into something beautiful even though you may feel that you are too heavy laden with tears to hold yourself together … let those tears refresh and restore you
“Today we live what we shaped yesterday and dream for tomorrow
… so may the rosebuds of yesterday be the blooms for today and the fragrance of tomorrow”

If you are caught in the pounding of waves upon the seashore and the security of land forever seems unattainable, just remember the serene, inner beauty that is hidden beneath the ever-changing surface … there is wondrous life abundant, unseen … the same that is in your heart amidst the anxiousness and sometimes hopelessness of invisible illness … hope, when your heart is captured by the love of those who share your pain

Sometimes a tree of despair is broken apart by relentless winds and torrential downpours; but through its pain and as it bows down, rays of sunshine often find their way through the surrendered openings and fall upon those huddled in its shadow …

(When we need comfort and are given comfort, it is given to overflowing that we may, in our very real understanding, comfort those who walk beside us upon the road of affliction) …

“Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:4 KJV

DAILY HUGS FOR THOSE WITH INVISIBLE ILLNESS


IMAGINE THAT YOUR HEALING IS A ROSE … NOW EACH THORN YOU HAVE TO CLIMB TO REACH THAT BEAUTIFUL FRAGRANCE WILL MAKE YOU STRONGER AND STRONGER EACH DAY … DON’T LOSE HOPE … YOU WILL BLOOM AGAIN

DON’T EVER BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE THE ILLNESS YOU HAVE IS INVISIBLE, THAT HEALING WILL NEVER BE VISIBLE
