Still Hanging

Hi everyone! I received an email that was based on a true story and I thought I would share.  As most of you may know, I work for Miami-Dade County in Florida and we are going through a very rough time with the budget cycle and balancing the budget.  For most it has meant a huge paycut for others it has meant their jobs.  I have a friends who sent me this email and this is what she had said in the email

"So, with everything going on at work, I decided to take it easy this morning and left for work around 10am. I've been trying very hard to find my inner peace and I finally did. On my way in to work I was at a stop light where there's usually a Homeless Voice person collecting. I was listening to Carrie Underwood's How Great Thou Art and was inspired to give the man a dollar. Instead of handing me their usual newsletter, attached is what I received. I hope it touches you the way it did me"

This is the letter that was handed to her:

Still Hanging
I finally learned what life is about
Life is about hanging on when your heart's had enough
Giving more when you wanna give up
You just wanna quit
Now know that you are annointed and appointed to win
For you can  do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you,
Knowing if God be for you, who can be against you
So hang in there you just can't quit
You see everyday your faith will be challenged
But a winner is non more than a loser who didn't quit
No don't give up on God for he will never give up on you
For he is always there
So trust him even when you can't trace him
walking by faith and not by sight
Understanding that the battle is not yours it's the Lord's
Now be strong and never give up or give in
For with God you got a friend in whom you can depend
Now hang on in there you can win!!!! - Ronald Simmons


I hope that this inspired you as much as it inspired me and reminded you that God will never leave you nor forsake you.  Be strong, show your faithfulness and believe that all things will work out for good.
God bless you all!
