God Turn It Around

This morning I want to share a few songs on YouTube for anyone who might be needing a shot of encouragement…

I have always tried to be an optimistic person, and even in the worst of situations, I try to find the silver lining. In fact, I frequently pray for God to show me silver linings in difficult situations.

For example, I tend to look back at when I lost my job in April 2009 and I never found another job after searching for a bunch of years, and I can still let myself get upset at what it did to me financially and in other ways, too.  And that happened ten plus years before I would have reached official retirement age. However, there are some real pluses that I had to go searching pretty deep for over these past dozen-plus years in order to find a silver lining. And over these past dozen-plus years I have found several silver linings.

So, I want to offer these seven songs below as a source of encouragement, and remember these words from Hebrews 13:5 that state:

Keep your lives free from the love of money
and be content with what you have,
because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;

   Never will I forsake you.
