52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 41

Wow! Week 41 already. Hopefully these verses have helped you find more joy and peace as you see how God is working in your life. I have been feeling especially peaceful the past week, not sure why. I keep telling myself to trust the feeling and don’t be convinced that the other shoe is going to drop.

So here is this week’s verse. It is a verse I’ve focused on before and need to focus on again as what thought was an anthill is now a mountain.

This picture of Galveston Bay was taken in 2009 when I was there for a wedding.


Where Do We Begin?

To everyonewho is living through extended unemployment and feels down and out, this quote is for you:

“If you wish to reach the highest, begin at the lowest.”

Publilius Syrus

Been There, Done That

I was at my lowest upon becoming a widow and worked my way baby-step by baby-step to the highest.

Now I am back at my lowest, working through an extended unemployment journey.  I will reach my highest once again.

Since I did it once and will do it again, so can you.

This Weekend

So my dear friends spend this weekend resting and enjoying the view, where ever you are on the unemployment mountain.  Then on Monday, start moving forward towards your highest – one baby-step at a time.


Publilius (less correctly Publius) Syrus, a Latin writer of maxims, flourished in the 1st century BC. He was a Syrian who was brought as a slave to Italy, but by his wit and talent he won the favor of his master, who freed and educated him.  (Biographical Information courtesy of Wikipedia)
