Thank you Lord - Video Share: An UpLIFTing Adventure?

 Have you ever been worried about anything? Are you a Christian and you sometimes worry about stuff? Do you sometimes try To have everything figured out, Too afraid to trust God with it? If you said yes to any or all of the above, Then we have something in common.

My husband and I Have pretty Amazing lives. We consider ourselves blessed to be able to experience things that some others may never experience. And we like to share our Life In a blog that we call Walking Way Overrated. Why is it called that? Here's a quote from what the page is about. "Hi! I want to share my Life Extraordinary...to share the reasons why my husband and I both know from
experience, that Walking Is, Way Overrated. Adventures, Stories, Life lessons and Problem Solving, intended to encourage and inspire anyone who may be new to using wheels for legs, or is just plain interested in reading something unique. We don't get any credit, all the glory goes to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."

Now you don't have to have any physical challenges To be interested in WWO. Because it's Not just a
place for resources and encouragement, We just like to share "life stuff." And believe it or not our "Life stuff,"  can be Just like everyone else's. 

Some of that "stuff? Anxiety and worry. Yes, we trust in Jesus to care for our life's needs in all ways, but I still get tempted  when "Life stuff"  may not look so sure. Yes, this is "The Sure Hope Gazette," and we are very sure about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 
I'm talking about ... 
Well the best examples I have at present, (and why I am here sharing the videos below from our other blog)  are: 
Because we depend on wheelchair accessible vehicles, my husband recently got stuck two times in our van. Yesterday was his first day out on an errand since those events. If you're interested in knowing more, Feel free to check out the WWO link here

As much as I Know God is in control, I have been tempted And fallen into, intense anxiety, fear and worry. You know when your mind races with a steady stream of all the "What ifs?" 

So here I am, to remind myself and anyone else who struggles with worry and anxiety To seek out the best advice, for reassurance and comfort I know, God's Word...

[1Pe 5:7-9 KJV] 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

[Mat 6:25-34 NLT] 1 " 25 "That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life--whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn't life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 "And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don't work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 "So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 "So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today.

[Phl 4:6-8 NLT] 6 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
