Upside Down~Inside Out

Our lives have been a little topsy turvy for the last few months.  

Life has been turned upside down and inside out for me with the death of my best friend and baby sister, Melanie.  We are home now and I am working to find my ‘new normal’.  

I found this devotion in my email and it gave me some encouragement today.  

Everyone can use a little encouragement……


This is from Christine Caine’s First Things First email devotion:

Life will eventually turn every person upside down, inside out. No one is immune.

The day that I unexpectedly found out that I was adopted was one of those times. For thirty-three years I thought I was someone else, and then, just like that, I discovered I was not who I thought I was.

But just as life will upend us, so will love.

God’s love, which knows us and claimed us before we were even born, can take us beyond ourselves, as it did Jesus, who left heaven to go to the cross and pass through the grave in order to bring us back home. His love can bring us through emotional earthquakes.

Love like Christ’s can lift us out of betrayal and hurt. It can deliver us from any mess.

Lean into and receive the unconditional, unfailing, indescribable love of our precious Savior. When all else is shaken and fails, HIS LOVE never fails.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)

His Love never fails!
