It was early in the morning yet it felt like it was going to be one of those days. I did not feel exceptionally well, work has been… different, and so on, and so on. Seeking to change my attitude and show my gratitude, I sang praises to God while driving to work. I am the worst singer EVER, but thankfully God doesn’t mind. I came in the office and needed to print a report. Instead of sending the print job to the printer in my office, I sent it to the main copier shared by the first floor. It is an odd thing to do, I know. Sometimes I like change and so I do little things like this to escape ruts. But I digress. I walked down to the copy room to pick up my report and there was a sheet of paper on top of the copier. The print was very small and it appeared to be some type of clip art with words printed within the picture. Someone printed it the day before and did not pick it up before leaving.
The words captured me.
“When you feel like giving up, remember why you have held on so long in the first place.”
I do not know where this originated from, which of my co-workers printed this or why they had not come to retrieve it. But it was God's will that those words lay visible where I would see them. He knew, as the original author penned this message, that I would need these words.
This is why I hold on to trusting in Jesus for everything. He never fails and I will always remember that.
Amen and Hallelujah and Smile
