For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 HCSB
“Pull yourself up by your bootstraps!”
“Suck it up!” “Smile!” “It could be worse.”
Have you ever felt encouraged in your heart from hearing any of these words? Or did it feel like even more weight had been placed on your already heavily burdened heart? When the weight of the world has dragged your spirit to dark places of hopelessness, lift your eyes up to the light of heaven’s promise. There is no better encouragement than that of eternity in the presence of God.🚦
