Have you ever found your head hanging down after being disappointed or struggling with a difficult problem? When I feel this way, I am encouraged by these words:
3 But you, O Lord, are a shield around me;
you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.
4 I cried out to the Lord,
and he answered me from his holy mountain.
Psalm 3:3-4 NLT
He protects us and lifts up our heads. When we cry out to God, He answers each one of us.
God is also our bridegroom who lifts the veil of shame off of our lives and calls us beautiful and chosen. His tender-love cleanses us by His word. He says to us:
“You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand,
a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected,
and your country will no more be called Ruined….
Because God delights in you
and your land will be like a wedding celebration…
And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride,
so your God is happy with you.”
Isaiah 62:1-5 MSG
Whatever difficult thing you have struggle with in recent days, know that if God is for you, who can be against you! Turn to Him when you are going through difficult times, He will lift you up and encourage you.
This will Encourage you

Wayne and Sue Detweiler relocated to Frisco Texas (a growing community north of Dallas) to plant and pastor Life Bridge Church which meets every Sunday morning at 8:30 am at The Roots 6142 Frisco Square, Frisco, TX, 75035. They are building a life-giving community and welcome innovative leaders to get involved in reaching neighbors, nations, and generations with the good news of Jesus Christ’s love and power.
Sue has had a calling to write books for many years. When she prayed about which book to write first she was
surprised when she sensed God leading her to write 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom. Every mom wants to be the best mom in the world to her children but often she feels like the worst. This is how Sue has felt as they have raised 6 children. In the middle of having her two daughters get married 7 weeks apart, 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom hit number 1 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases and gained popular momentum with moms groups and online communities.
With over 25 years of marriage and ministry, Wayne and Sue have a heart help couples to build marriages that last. Sue’s newest book, 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Marriage, grew out of their heart to help couples grow closer to God and to each other. In their pastoral ministry to marriages, Wayne and Sue have seen how sharing their own struggles can help create a safe context for couples to be transparent and honest with their own issues. They have been helping couples find freedom and transformation through conferences, marriage retreats, seminars, and coaching through out their entire marriage. Known for their transparency and honesty, Wayne and Sue have helped hundreds of couples find freedom and transformation in their own marriages.

The nationally syndicated Healing Rain Radio Broadcast was launched to provide daily encouragement to listeners. When Sue arrived in the Dallas Metroplex, Sue was already being heard on popular Dallas Radio Station KCBI. Often when people hear her voice or name they realize that she has already been a daily inspiration to them via the airwaves.
